It got me all nostalgic for all the wonderful times I had when I used to visit Perth. It got even worse when I had a look at the Fairbridge Festival site.
We really enjoyed performing there,GREAT festival.

If you get chance to migrate a little from the CBD along the Swan river towards Freemantle (good train services) you might find something going on at the Kulture, situated above a coffee bar in the main "coffee bar street" Google will probably find the answers. Was there in 2008 and there were some great international artists featured..

You are invited for a night of fiery gypsy music from Eastern Europe combined with the passionate tangos of Astor Piazzolla along
with the occasional foray into jazz, folk and 70's rock.
With new original material along with some freshly reworked classics, this promises to be one of the most exciting
Zigatango performances yet. We are also thrilled to announce our support act for the evening 'The Whistling Dogs'
who will warm up the audience with their South American melodies and quirky Lyrics.

We recommend that you pre-book to avoid disappointment, as our first Kulcha show was sold out and our second

Having posted that, I'd slide on down to Fremantle and check out the pubs there. There's usually some sort of music going on there.

It's a shame you're not here a little earlier, I'm doing the Hills Folk Club on friday 5th.
