The latest in a long list of new folk clubs and folk nights springing up all over Sydney is Bush Bash upstairs at the Imperial Hotel in Paddington on Wednesday nights. With a focus on “Australian bush songs, ballads, city ditties, yarns, recitations and bush dance tunes” Bush Bash definitely leans towards the traditional end of the folk spectrum.
The host for the night is the legendary Warren Fahey with his mates The Larrikins and The Australian Bush Orchestra in house band mode. There will be open mic sessions at each night and a weekly “bar stool chat” sponsored by Little Creatures. Bush Bash kicks off on the 23rd of may – doors open at 7:30pm with the music kicking off at 8pm – and admission is free.
Singing at a pub on a Wednesday night? Sounds like the perfect way to get in touch with the tradition to us!
