Folk Among The Artworks
Come and enjoy the folk sounds of Sam Newton and Chris Gillespie surrounded by the artworks of the Heart of Annandale exhibition.
Singer songwriter Sam Newton is a storytelling folk musician from Sydney who takes full advantage of traditional country and blues foundations to build both free wheelin’ and carefully constructed songs. A staple in the Australian Alt-Country scene, his hooks and poignant lyrics will stay with you long after the music finishes.
Chris Gillespie is an artist from the Blue Mountains of NSW. His songs are beautiful, bursting with observational yearning. “A fingerpickin’, harmonica playing troubadour… ‘Sydney’s answer to Bob Dylan’ (Dave Regos – FBi Radio) Gillespie is renowned for his song writing craft. “I really like this tune (Unnatural Light).. it’s incredibly catchy with a little bit of a Josh Pyke vibe..” Rosie Beaton – Triple J
