Tony Rees Melanie Shanahan- Arramaeida (Australia) (6) Melanie Shanahan- Arramaeida (Australia) 28 Apr 18

Hi fellow Catters,

Just wondering if any of our Australian contingent have remembrances of Melanie Shanahan and/or the a capella vocal group Arramaeida who performed in and around Tasmania and the rest of Australia in the late 1980s/early 90s. I looked on wikipedia and found a little info at and remember seeing them several times in Tassie and being impressed. Apparently, sadly Melanie took her own life in 2003. A least two of her co-Arramaeida singers, Rachel Hore and Kirsten Mackenzie, seem to be still involved in vocal music according to their respective web pages. I should like to know more of the history of the group but there is little around in the published domain it seems at this time. BTW I have some audio and video recordings of the group from 1989 and 1995, just watched the latter video tape and it is very well performed and atmospheric music. Regards - Tony
