The Celtic Festival is almost upon us and at the Hereford Steakhouse Char Grill we are very excited about our line-up for 2020. The Hereford Steakhouse Char Grill is one of the most intimate evening entertainment venues available during the Australian Celtic Festival and we have a wonderful line-up of first-class musicians and entertainers. Each evening guests can enjoy an exclusive dinner and show with a two-course dinner menu and different musicians every evening.
Every evening will kick off at 7pm. Tickets are $45 per person and include the entertainment and a two-course dinner. Bookings are essential.
Friday 1st May at the Hereford Steakhouse Char Grill – GraceJean
With a warm, honest sound, GraceJean is an award-winning folk duo whose rich harmonies, intricate guitar lines, heartfelt storytelling and cheeky stage presence leaves audiences glowing with excitement.
Traversing a musical landscape that shifts from energetic and uplifting rhythms to peaceful ballads, GraceJean are heavily influenced by folk musicians such as The Waifs, First Aid Kit, Indigo Girls and Wallis Bird, with a strong sense of Australian and Celtic folk combined.
After supporting The Black Sorrows and winning a song writing award in the Darebin Music Festival in 2018, GraceJean released their debut album ‘Long Black Road’ in October 2019, which was followed by a short tour in regional Victoria and appearances at the Tablelands Folk Festival, Queenscliff Festival, Happy Wanderer and Yarra Valleys Renaissance Festival. They were the recipients of the Alex Legg Memorial Scholarship in December 2019 and are will also be appearing at the Macedon Ranges Folk Festival in 2020 as well as the Australian Celtic Festival.
Saturday 2nd May at the Hereford Steakhouse Char Grill – Limerick
Limerick brings together four talented musicians with a passion for high energy music, broadly representing the Celtic rock genre, including originals, classics and Trad tunes.
Limerick’s slogan of “Modern Celtic Band” reflects the incorporation of crowd pleasers into their shows to ensure that everybody, young and old and in-between, are either toe tapping, beer stomping, or up singing and dancing whilst being mesmerised by their roaming “Pied Piper-like” Fiddle player.
Sunday 3rd May at the Hereford Steakhouse Char Grill – Gone Molly with Wright and Mckay
Over the past three years, songwriter and vocalist Sally Harris has been quietly building a repertoire of songs that bring together a love of history, mythology, traditional song, tunes and sessions. Together with one of Australia’s most well-known and respected folk musicians, Rebecca Wright and superb multi-instrumentalist Lachlan Baldwin, these stories have been brought to life with exquisite cello lines, heart melting harmonies and a love of the theatrical.
Gone Molly won group of the Year in 2019 in the Australian Celtic Music Awards and they are truly unique folk storytellers. Breathing life into colourful characters and tales imagined or discovered, Gone Molly whispers and roars through the grimy streets of London, over ghostly battlefields and down into the faerie dells of Anglo-Celtic history. Delivered with joyful energy, their live performances are not to be missed!
Gone Molly will be supported at The Hereford Steakhouse by Wright and McKay.
Rebecca Wright and Donald McKay make up the talented duo that are Wright and Mckay. Their music has been likened to that of a good Scotch Whisky; delightfully smooth, full of character and highly addictive. With voices that can instantly transport you to another place and time, Donald’s traditional songs from his native Scotland are beautifully complemented by Rebecca’s insightful Australian originals. Together they have toured in their respective homelands and beyond, sharing songs from their recently released ‘Over Burnds and Braes’, and debut offering, ‘Joys that never weary’. Accompanied by requinto, cello, accoustic guitar and bodrhan, their shows will bring you back to the heart of Scottish folk music.
