Out of Range

Out of Range

Out of Range are a quirky Cabaret, Swing, Gypsy, Roots and Balkan, influenced band from the Northern Rivers. They have been gathering momentum with their, irreverent, happy, upbeat, foot-stomping shenanigans, securing a spot at the Mullumbimby Festival last year and receiving 3 nominations in the NCEIA Dolphin Awards.

You could sit down to watch this treat but as you recline, beware…  because you may find that your feet start tapping and your hands start clapping and before you know it you may even find yourself participating at a moment’s notice, swaying, swinging, swooning, swaggering

STOP THE PRESS! This genre-fluid music may contain traces of piano, accordion, violin, double bass, guitar, vocals, harmonies and megaphone.

Tailor Birds

Tailor Birds

Tailor Birds is Sophie Kinston, electronic violinist.  This is music that soothes the soul, warms the spirit, and ignites your passion.  This is the latest act to come onto the international touring circuit, currently touring through Australia and Europe.  World folk at its’ finest, music at its’ most raw, T.Birds combine live looping, foley art, and rich harmonised vocals, to create a sound like no other.

A sound that is all about the vibe and positive energy, building an audience that is as diverse as much as it is one, you could say that Sophie is a travelling troubadour.  She believes that music should not just be about playing one gig after another with just the music making impact, but is also about connecting people to something good again, in a world that is constantly changing.  Music needs to inspire, and placing Tailor Birds in a space that can do just that, it makes an impact greater than you could ever imagine.

Constantly pushes to do a range of shows – festivals, gigs, supports, but also markets and street shows, to connect with and provide music to the general public, Tailor Birds was formed in 2012, touring through NSW, QLD, SA, & VIC, and through Europe each summer.

Sofiella Watt & Huckleberry Jim

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.

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!

The Channon Open Mic

The Channon Open Mic

The Channon Open Mic first began at The Channon Butterfactory Tavern in April 2008 and was called The Channon Folk Club. In August 2014 the name was changed to The Channon Open Mic to more accurately reflect the musical diversity of the performances. The Open Mic runs from 2pm (to sunset) during the winter months and from 3pm during daylight saving. We usually set up on the lawn adjacent to the Tavern, however in the case of wet weather the shelter of the Tavern veranda is our fall-back. We welcome all performers and have hosted poets and acrobats as well as an eclectic array of musicians.

The performances at The Channon Market will showcase some of our regular and not so regular musicians, including some collaborative endeavours. We offer a good quality sound system and anyone is welcome to join us on the 4 th Sunday of each month excluding December and January and (for 2017 only) September. There is no need to book – just turn up with your favourite instrument and put your name on the blackboard. Three songs is the usual limit, but this can be extended on quiet days or by popular audience demand.
Further inquiries can be made by phoning Ray on 6688 6100 or by email to
