Live music’s back at 5 Sawyers with Live Sawyers. Kicking off Thursday March 15 with Tamworth’s own rebel child Allison Forbes. Allison is a new-age outlaw of country music: with insightful lyrics and addictive melodies, her stories will have you tapping your toes and tugging on the heartstrings.
Supporting Allison tonight is Ben Leece. Raised on Kamilaroi country, Ben grew up on a small farm on the North West Slopes & Plains of NSW. He first picked up his father’s Maton guitar as an early teenager and began writing songs before he even knew how to play. After performing in Newcastle bands The Delta Lions and Hazards, his solo incarnation sees him offer up a soulful blend of minimalistic alt country, Americana, folk and blues.
The music kicks off at 8pm and entry is free. Get along and support original live music in Newcastle.
