David Rawet grew up in the northern outskirts of Melbourne and discovered guitar and song writing in his mid-teens. After working for a few years in Victoria – writing songs along the way – he moved to Bunbury in Western Australia, where he still lives. His days now see him mixing work with creative pursuits; including writing fiction, plays and playing selections of his more than 300 songs.
12PM - 1PM
THE ALBANY SHANTYMEN
If Australia prides itself on mateship then The Albany Shantymen distils mateship into music. A group of ordinary blokes that meet at their local pub and sing sea shanties, the joy and energy they bring to this traditional music is infectious. The lads have been disguising themselves as proper musicians to sneak into festivals for free for five years now. Be prepared to stamp, clap and sing along.
2.15PM - 3PM
JUST FIDDLING & GOLDEN HILL FIDDLERS
Four hundred kilometres from the most isolated capital city in the world, Albany has over 300 students learning classical stringed instruments.
This would be the highest ratio of students-to-population for most regional centres in the southern hemisphere – if not the world.
In Just Fiddling & The Golden Hill Fiddlers you have the cream of fiddling talent in southern Western Australian.
Recognised nationally for their energy, vibrancy and unique playing, these young fiddlers are tomorrow’s professionals.
Borne from the classical tradition, they defy the traditional stereotype of the classical violin student.
1.15PM - 2PM
The Galley is lucky enough to have a fantastic line-up of delicious stallholders bringing their warming foods and drinks to Stirling Terrace.
