Live Music – Two Aussies and an Irishman

This will be an evening of intimate music and song explored by three artists reflecting on the songs and stories that shaped their lives.

Jack O’Leary Well known and loved in his native Ireland, Jack is a gifted singer and story-teller who embodies the culture, history and passion of his people and brings it to life in song and verse. With the natural flair and charm of a true Celt, and a voice that can make you ache with the memory of a landscape you may never have seen, Jack offers audiences in Australia a taste of the authentic Irish experience, performing both traditional and contemporary music from some of Ireland’s greatest and most beloved writers.

Jimmy Dowling’s music has a raw but skilled quality throughout. It’s authentic, confident, and engages your attention in its emotive, visual language. You’ll find a nostalgic empathy and visceral reflection of the everyday, of the everyman. The tracks are poetic in lyrics and music, pushing boundaries and expectations. Dowling’s strong delivery shines beyond the mediocre to touch your imagination. His precise selection of elite Australian musicians lifts this album onto the international stage.

Ash Bell is a singer/songwriter from the NSW Northern Rivers System. Former frontman for folk festival favourites Starboard Cannons, Ash has in recent times occupied the stage alongside Sara Tindley, forming a stripped-back acoustic duo that has toured regional Australia extensively. His solo performance is reflective, friendly, tender and devastating all at once.
