Burrinja Blues and Roots

FRIDAY, 19 JUNE
Local blues legends Dave Diprose and Doc White have re-launched the popular Blues and Roots at Burrinja.

Ian Collard
Ian needs no introduction to Burrinja Blues & Roots. As part of Collard Greens and Gravy and Three Kings, singer and harmonica player Ian Collard is one of Australia’s leading blues artists. In 2015 his debut solo album Swamp Stomp and Boogie was nominated for the Age Music award. Ian will be performing this one man band gut bucket blues style for the June’s Burrinja Blues and Roots.

Blue Eyes Cry
Fronted by the brilliant voice of Iseula Hingano, Blue Eyes Cry are: (guitarist) Nathan Brett, Cameron Smith (Drums) and Stuart Prendergast (Bass). Originally from the North Coast of NSW, Iseula and Nathan moved to Melbourne in and linked up with Stu and Cameron.
This hard working young band have toured nationally  and  perform at premier music festivals and venues around Australia. Their debut album 'Sleepin' Alone' ('Black Market Music) went to number #1 on the 'Australian Blues and Roots Radio Air Charts' in June and July in 2013. In 2014 Iseula was also awarded 'Female Artist of the Year' and the band received two Chain Awards in February for 'Best New Talent' and 'Song of the Year' (Sleepin' Alone).

Nicholas Chamber Orchestra

The Nicholas Chamber Orchestra brings together the finest classical musicians of the Dandenong Ranges to perform under the baton of Eric Klay.

The NCO Programme for their September Burrinja performance features Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 in C major. His Jupiter Symphony, as it became known, was the last symphony Mozart composed (1788), and was also his longest.

Scored for flute, two oboes, two bassoons, two horns, two trumpets, timpani  and strings, Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 will showcase the strength, talent and versatility of our Dandenong Ranges very own Nicholas Chamber Orchestra.

The program will also include the delightful Brandenburg Concerto no 6 by JS Bach and the Mozart Clarinet Quintet.
