Jam Orange Presents Songs for Autumn

Sun 18 April at 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Queensland musicians, Michael Fix and Mark Cryle join forces, creating a unique musical perspective on Australian history. People and events are bought to life in song; whether singing of the Aboriginal fast bowler Eddie Gilbert, or the St Patrick Day’s protesters confronting police batons in Brisbane in 1948, or Ronald Ryan, the last hanged man in Australia. When Mark sings about visiting Sideshow Alley as a child and a Dad, every word rings true without any cloying sentimentality.

Both Mark and Michael are multi-instrumentalists and seasoned performers, and both are passionate about keeping Australia’s checkered history alive – the good, the bad and the ugly – revealed through a catalogue of important original songs.

The result is a powerful insight into the thoughts and feelings of the people involved, as well as a unique and fresh understanding of the events themselves.

Michael and Mark, together with Nedida Cuddy, will be appearing at the BLOOMFIELD HALL on Sunday April 18, 2021
Tickets are $30 and $25 (JAM Orange members)
