The next ArtSound fundraiser concert in the shady Manuka Arts Centre gardens is set for Sunday 25 February at 4pm.

ArtSound thanks two groups of performers for their generous support of the event.

Wallabindi (Monica Moore, left) and her band will present her acclaimed variety of soul, blues and country songs including her own compositions included on her EP Wallabindi Dreaming which won the 2023 MusicACT Award for Independent Debut of the Year.

With his five-piece band, Mark Thomann (right) will present his own country folk and blues songs including the ones you’ll find on his album Plastic Flowers, released in 2023. His band includes vocalist, two guitarists, percussionist, bassist and trombonist.

Admission (at the gate) is $15 general, $10 members, free for under 16s.

We have about 55 outdoor seats, and of course you can bring a picnic blanket, and a picnic.

We may well have a bar — arrangements are in the offing.
