His voice has been described as “compelling and hugely expressive” (Hotpress Magazine, UK), he has reviewed music for BBC radio and has worked as a music therapist for mental health organisations across the globe.

His song ‘All my Sides’ featured on Australian feature film; Weavil (2018, dir. Mark Larkin)

Broadfoot

Broadfoot

Bluesy, funky, rocky, soulful, colourful, fun, relaxed and intense are strokes which only begin to outline the joyously uncategorisable sound of Broadfoot, the popular Far North Coast band with members drawn from Mullumbimby and Byron Bay.  Ever attuned to the vibe of their diverse audiences, Broadfoot unleash the genie of dance upon venues across the NSW North Coast and beyond with a heady ever evolving mix of danceable intelligent original material and a powerful repertoire of covers.

 

Tuntable Creek Landcare & Tuntable Creek Hall.

Tuntable Creek Landcare & Tuntable Creek Hall.

The Hall has been an important part of the local community for eight decades. It provides a space for school concerts, music nights, public
meetings and parties.

The Hall is currently undergoing major renovations. Termite damage has been removed and affected areas treated. With the help of the State Government, the building’s old timber stumps have been replaced with steel piers and concrete footings. The entrance portico and ramp have been renovated after the depredations of termites and weather.

On Christmas Day a storm blew over a large hoop pine tree adjacent to the Hall. Fortunately, the damage to the building was minor. However, a 22,500 litre tank, installed as a static water supply for firefighting purposes was destroyed. Your donation today will help the Hall Trust in its endeavours to bring this community focal point back into use.


Tuntable Creek Landcare Group is currently supporting landholders with weed control with a particular focus on The Giant Devil’s Fig. We are also involved with regeneration work and the establishment of Koala corridors. Both groups work together to support the community of Tuntable Creek and Beyond.

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!! :)

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.
