Bev Singh brings her legendary Indian cooking to Tintenbar Up Front Friday November 8.
Vegetable Curry with fresh coriander
Each dish will come with rice, sambals (chutneys, pickles and breads) and one of her famous samosas.
We would like food to be available at TUF, but it is only viable if the audience supports it.
What a great way to start the weekend: a delicious curry, and fabulous entertainment.
Acts feature a return of The Elderberries, an entertaining group of roguish gentlemen. James Webb is a newbie, and a singer songwriter with a recent album.
There are lots more. Check the program.
Food served from 6:45. Entertainment begins at 7:30
Charity of the month: Vinnies NSW Bushfire Appeal.
Happy birthday Tintenbar Up Front.
Tintenbar Up Front was one year old on Friday October 11.
To begin the evening, young vocalist Bailey Southon wowed the audience with fine versions of modern songs. Accompanied in turn on guitar, piano and a backing track, he displayed fine control and power. Then followed Brendo Wheeler, also singing recent tunes, but accompanying himself on acoustic electric guitar. He received plenty of cheers, not only from his family and friends.
Nick Wheeler, engaging as usual, took the floor next, singing well known classics and got the crowd joining him on an Eagles tune. Greg Pimm, laid back guitar and vocals, sang more of his repertoire of bushranger and convict ballads mixed up with a Dire Straits tune.
After the break, Bernadette Mcwhinnie on harp and Helen Pollock on guitar played sublime renditions of old folk tunes. Peter Lino, Defing Gravity and inspired by the Ballina Country music festival, sang three humorous songs with a country feel. Now regulars Sam Sabine (vocals and piano) and Ebony Stibbard (guitar and vocals) blended voices and instruments beautifully. Another terrific performance from them, greeted with enthusiastic applause. To finish the evening we had energetic blues standards from Dale Gilmore playing slide on a National resonator guitar, and providing percussion with a stomp box. Dale displayed fine musicianship.
Another great night of entertainment, and $300 was raised for the UNHCR Syrian Crisis Appeal.
Check out the photos of the evening, or the program for November 8.
Performers, there are still spots available.
After more than 80 performances, $4000 raised for charity and lots of entertained audience members, Tintenbar Up Front will begin its second year.
Come and help us celebrate our first anniversary.
Check out the fabulous line up.
