Lana Patrin is one of the unsung heroes of the music scene in Wollongong, involved with many events that have fostered our blossoming arts culture – on Sunday 15th December she continues her “Soul Bird Lounge” sessions, with Bex Chilcott (Ruby Boots) and local fav, Kay Proudlove.
“I really want my own venue, that’s been a dream of mine for a very long time, but I’ve got a really good backyard, you know, just chuck some couches out, some mats and cushions – it’s really nice.” said Lana.
“I’m kind of picky with who I have – I’m a big fan of music and that’s why I got into it because there’s just so much talent out there. That’s why I started at The Bowlo (Scarborough Wombarra Bowling Club), just to get bands to come and play – it was a bit of a selfish thing… these people are coming to play for me… yeah, I’ll put it on.”
Tickets for this weekends events can be purchased by emailing Lana at $10 each, or there may be tickets still available at the door for $15. There is a limited number of 40 tickets for this event in Thirroul and details will be supplied about the venue when the tickets have been purchased.
More about Bex:
Hailing from the west coast of Australia, Ruby Boots is one of the state’s freshest and favourite artists of late. Ruby Boots is the musical alter-ego of writer & performer Bex Chilcott. Inspired by great blues, folk and country artists from over more than five decades, Ruby Boots shapes stories of a tumultuous life and the people she’s encountered along the way. Her trademark powerful, emotive and soaring vocals fuel these stories, while the strong rhythm and melody carry listeners right along side her in the passenger seat. It’s hard not to get in and have a great ride when Ruby Boots is in full flight on the stage.
