FREE LIVE STREAMED MICRO MUSIC CONCERT

Love Local Live is Blue Mountains City Council’s first-ever series of local events that will be brought to the community via live streaming.

CJ Stranger hones a unique sound and spirit. He carves out contemporary Australian music and perfectly matches gentle simmering with the raw honesty of reflective coming-of-age lyrics.
Slinging a small-but-powerful arsenal of instruments, CJ Stranger crafts his distinctive sound using an old weathered resonator, a weird vintage organ, and his beloved purple guitar Frankenstein-ed out of discarded bits and pieces. This array of re-purposed musical antiques allows CJ Stranger to sculpt a vivid and honest landscape for his musings.

These days based in the Blue Mountains while regularly Sydney-side, CJ’s 2016 debut album established his prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitar player, but it was a different kind of animal. CJ Stranger is an exaggerated and more nuanced side of Henderson, brought forth by exploring this new artistic persona.
A singer-songwriter through and through, CJ Stranger’s captivating voice, tell-all lyrics and natural feel for fingerpicking walk together in perfect synchrony.

KING CURLY
“Tiny Tim meets the gritty story telling of Lou Reed. Songs of avenging zombies, ukulele bumblebees, possessed pianos and a certain air of quiet, small town romance, against an impossibly beautiful backdrop of chook-shed instrumentation”.
Hailing from the Blue Mountains NSW, King Curly is the invention of local singer/songwriter Steve Appel – a long time enigma of original Australian music.
After many absences from the stage, building alternative-design mud houses, King Curly re-emerges to showcase new songs.
Appel is a true creative. His songs and his buildings are beautiful and relevant to the times.
King Curly has toured throughout the world – by invitation with acts as diverse as K.D Lang, Paul Kelly and The Cat Empire. The band features Steve Grieve on guitars and Johnny Graffham on pedal steel.

DAN TUFFY
If his knock-out gigs at the recent Bello Winter Festival are anything to go by, this will certainly be a night to remember.
Dan Tuffy’s 2017 album ‘Songs From Dan’ was hailed as a “downright masterpiece”. Dan is an Australian ex-pat who has operated in the Netherlands as a music producer, storyteller and record label owner for over 20 years.
He returns to Australia this year to tour his new album ‘Letters Of Gold’.
Dan’s music is an out-of-the-box mix of electronics, earthy acoustics, pulse and lyrical beauty. He is a very special performer whose songs have an uncanny ability to move through you.

The Three­ Handed Beat Bandits are undoubtedly the best three handed little big band in the world today.

Made up of the two-handed John Stuart and the single­ handed Neill Duncan, between them they play guitar, bass, congas, drums and saxophone, all at the same time.
Megaphone vocals included, this beat combo swing their listeners through a kaleidoscope of musical styles, including reggae, ska, calypso, funk, swing, and a little klezmer thrown in for good measure.
Beautiful to the ear, great for the feet.

Neill Duncan is one of New Zealand’s most exciting and eccentric musicians, now a resident of the Blue Mountains. Three years ago he lost his left arm to cancer. With the help of the community, Neill has been able regain full musical strength. Neill now plays an incredible one-handed tenor saxophone, designed and built in Amsterdam. His passion and musical imagination flow like never before. An adapted drum kit completes the mix, with some additional weird and wonderful instruments.

John Stuart is a master of the seven-string guitar. This amazing instrument allows John to cover the bass as well as provide the chordal accompaniment to the Bandit’s wide­ ranging repertoire. John is all about texture and space, switching between driving bass lines, and sparkling single line accompaniments. Bass solos? No extra charge. Add in the hot conga playing and all the elements of this extraordinary duo fall into place. Even the silences swing!

Together they are the Three Handed Beat Bandits. Their exotic musical gumbo will steal your heart.

At only 17, Katoomba singer/songwriter, Aurora Li is fast becoming a seasoned performer, playing regularly at live music venues, festivals and events in and around her home in the Blue Mountains and further afield, including Bello Winter Music, where she won the hotly-contested vocal category of the 2019 Youth Mentorship Competition, and the 2020 Illawarra Folk Festival, where she brought home Youth Tradition Awards in two categories. As the most senior member of family folk/bluegrass/indie pop trio, Breathing Underwater, Aurora has played to the packed concert hall of the Sydney Opera House as a featured artist for Pulse 2019, a showcase of outstanding young artists.
Alongside her performance commitments and hectic study schedule (she is currently preparing for her HSC), Aurora writes songs that are sometimes upbeat and irreverent, occasionally sad and angry, and often deeply moving, but always showing a wisdom and insight far beyond her years. Her spare, indie pop/folk sound is complimented by sharply observed lyrics that urge you to close your eyes and listen in, as she ponders the regrets, worries and passions of teenage life with a voice that will gently carry you along for the ride.

People who have heard her sing tend to describe Luca Zumwalt as an old soul. At 8 she picked up her first uke, at 9 she dubbed herself “Ace Evergreen” and she’s been quietly and earnestly crafting a unique musical identity ever since – shaped in one part by her own tremendous gifts and in another by an eclectic playlist of indie artists from Rebecca Sugar to Florence & the Machine, Girl in Red to Weezer. Fast forward another 2 years and Ace has swapped the uke for a guitar, comes armed with a truckload of vocal skill and charm and writes songs pulled from places you wouldn’t think an 11-year-old capable of going. Songs about existential dread, immortality, death, life, love. This is quintessential Ace Evergreen: a sensitive and small soul living an inconceivable conundrum just trying to make sense of it all through song.
