Sofiella Watt & Huckleberry Jim

If we were a swanky wine label, we would read something like: …a motley mix of winsome folk, bruised with blues and infused with banjo. A full bodied country blend, with heady jazz notes, and spicy gypsy undertones.

Monkey & The Fish

Monkey & The Fish

A partnership between two singer songwriters Chris Fisher and Marcelle Townsend-Cross creates a special vocal harmony & presence in Monkey & the Fish. Presenting their own songs along with original renditions of classic tunes this act is popular at both Festivals and pub/club gigs. Uncle Keith always called his little sister “monkey” so when she started singing up and hanging out with Chris Fisher the cry began “where’s Monkey & the Fish playin?”

The name stuck and play they did. Their already dysfunctional families blended becoming something nothing like the partridge family but twice as talented. ‘In Cahoots’, Monkey & the Fish’s baby & debut CD release came in 2001 and features several Dolphin Award winning tunes. ‘Bundjalung’ (Song of the Year), a track written and recorded in collaboration with local Bundjalung Custodians, ‘Mirror’ telling some of Marcelle’s story as a Koori woman and Wai:Bal (Best Environmental Message Song) written in acknowledgement of the Clan of the Bundjalung who’s homelands includes Lismore and Nimbin NSW, have all been celebrated through awards.

These and other songs from ‘In Cahoots’ have proved popular with FM radio and live audiences. Monkey & the Fish now perform as duo or band with the addition of George Urbeszeck on Bass and Dan Crandon on Drums. In addition to originals classic songs by Paul Kelly, Crowded House, Van Morrison, Goanna, Tracey Chapman, and many more are performed. Influences are diverse with oz rock, reggae, folk and country vibes present. Top musicianship and home grown creativity combine with a healthy audience rapport to make this a truly deadly act!! :)

Jimmy Willing and the Real Gone Hick-Ups

Jimmy Willing and the Real Gone Hick-Ups

To celebrate the day, Northern Rivers favourites: Jimmy Willing and the Real Gone Hick-Ups will be playing on the main stage. The market committee has jumped at the chance to have The Hick-Ups play for the birthday, as the  front-man Jimmy Willing used to be a feature show at the Market in the early 90’s. Back then Jimmy would arrive in his gypsy cart with his herd of horses and perform with his marionettes – The Von Tramp Family Puppet Show. Featuring characters such as “The Devil” and “Ginger Dreadlocks” it is a bent show that will leave you wondering, just who is pulling the strings? For the birthday show Jimmy is bringing his puppets back to the market and The Real Gone Hick-Ups will supply a kooky soundtrack before kicking up the dust with some great dance tunes

The Channon Craft Market

The Channon Craft Market

The Channon Craft Market is a non profit community group, celebrating 41 years of economic and social development in the region, supporting 100′s of creators, artisans and producers to showcase their wares whilst growing the community, venue and management.
2017 saw the regions of the East Coast be exposed to 100′s of ml of rain. These floods affected the grounds and financially impacted the markets viability. The community will join forces to raise additional funds to contribute with Lismore City Council to repair the grounds. Please give generously to the volunteers on the gates and in the kitchen. This work is imperative to continue the journey of the markets. 41 year strong!
