Event: Enjoy a FREE All-Ages Family-Friendly concert in Manjimup during the Spring school holidays.
Join award winning artists Kiera Jas and Mama Kin Spender for an afternoon of original WA music in the Manjimup Heritage Park (at the Sandra Donovan Sound Shell).
Presented by Southern Forest Arts & the Shire of Manjimup thanks to the generosity of Mama Kin Spender and Kiera Jas. The concert is free (however if you feel like making a contribution to the musicians, or buying some of their merch that would be super!)
Fresh off the back of their Northern Magnetic tour down the West Coast, Kiera Jas and Mama Kin Spender are making a pit stop in Manjimup before continuing the southern leg of their tour.
[In case of wet weather the event will be held at the Roundhouse in the Manjimup Heritage Park]
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
MAMA KIN SPENDER
“a triumph of classical singer-songwriter prowess”
“(there’s) an aching humanity in their sentiment of the longing and deep necessity to be connected.”
– The Music
From the mouth of Margaret River, WA (Wadandi Boodja) to Victoria’s rugged Mornington Peninsula (Bunurong and Boonwurung country), Mama Kin Spender is a rattle and hum call across the desert plains. An ARIA-nominated duo of mischief-makers, MKS is Mama Kin (aka Danielle Caruana), a storyteller and dream weaver with a penchant for soul-baring; and Dingo Spender, a producer, songman and instrumental wizard. Long-time friends and collaborators, MKS combine drums, percussion and blistering guitar with lightning arrangements underpinned by harmonies that shimmer and smoulder. Exploring life’s joys, bruises, stretch marks and scars, MKS possess a lyrical depth that pushes us to our far-flung edges. With two releases under their belts, including ARIA-nominated “Golden Magnetic” and “Are You Listening?”, a journey through grief, rage, reflection and arrival, MKS delve into life’s complexities with vigour. MKS is an openhearted burst of sincerity, wonder and adventure. Their connection is primal, breathing soul and vitality into every space they inhabit. From the songwriting craft to the percussive beats, MKS will leave you clutching at your chest while stomping and howling.
Born and raised in the beautiful coastal town that is Margaret River, singer-songwriter Kiera Jas is spreading her wings in the Australian music scene as an indie-solo artist. Kiera’s thoughtful song-writing and heartfelt melodies are embraced by delicate vocals and witty banter. Many would say that watching Kiera perform brings the warmth of sun rays, with lyrics that illuminate the light of the stars. Kiera Jas is bound to have you smiling from the first word with an abundance of heart-warming and upbeat songs that will leave you beaming for more!
