Sunday 18th November


On Sunday 18th we have a new venue for Jackadder's Music Club. It is the Community of Christ Church, cnr Lombardy and Elmwood St's, Woodlands. New start time: 2.30pm. Guest performer's "Spirit of the Streets" choir directed by Bernard Carney.

The Spirit of the Streets Choir is a not-for-profit community organisation which provides an environment where people from all walks of life and all social backgrounds can come together in song and friendship. It is a Choir where people who experience social disadvantage, isolation and often stigma because of their circumstances would otherwise not be able to enjoy the benefits of singing.

Started eleven years ago by their Musical Director, popular songwriter, guitarist, entertainer Bernard Carney, the choir has been on an incredible journey,performing four times at the Perth Concert Hall, many times at the Perth Town Hall and St Georges Cathedral as well as regional Festivals such as Fairbridge, Nanga and the Voice festivals at Denmark and Dunsborough. They are indeed a busy choir.

When the Spirit of the Streets Choir sing their energy and joy is infectious. Standing ovations have shown how audiences appreciate the variety of uplifting and poignant songs presented in a very personal way by this self proclaimed “rough and ready crew”. Although many members struggle with everyday life, they take a pride in singing, occasionally offering glimpses of their personal life with a raw honesty that pulls the heart strings and singing in this choir is a healing journey for many of it's members

Full of fun,warm and uplifting The Spirit of the Streets Choir is a favourite wherever they perform.

Jackadder’s Music Club was formed in August 2003 at the time that the West Australian Folk Federation was discussing ways to promote 'live' Folk Music in the community. 

The club encourages ‘live’ family entertainment and is run by Carmel and her husband Eric.     

Jackadder’s has grown since its inception and an average of 50 people attend each month.  There is a great variety of both professional and amateur performers taking part and often young performers are included in the afternoon’s line-up. It is a great opportunity for like minded musicians to network, build friendships and share their love of music.  

People of all ages enjoy the shows and are encouraged to join in by the performers. Our oldest performer to date was eighty nine and the youngest seven except for the performing pooch 'Poppy' who was only five!!   All styles of music are encouraged and verse is also popular at the club.

Adults only $12 and children FREE Afternoon tea included
