Contemporary pop/folk Indigenous singer-songwriter Leah Flanagan will kick off the Wanderlust Concert Series in February 2021 at Blue Mountains Theatre.
Blue Mountains City Council is delighted to announce that Blue Mountains Theatre has received funding of $37,869 from Live Music Australia for an exciting new concert series and new speakers.

Over seven magical Friday nights in February and March 2021, the Wanderlust Concert Series will see a presentation of extraordinary concerts exploring ancient music traditions melded with contemporary influences from across the globe. 

Mayor Cr Mark Greenhill said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this federal funding from the Office of Contemporary Music. It will be used to install state-of-the-art audio speakers in the theatre auditorium and to relaunch Blue Mountains Theatre in 2021.

“The Wanderlust Concert Series is a fantastic initiative from the team at Blue Mountains Theatre and they have done a great job in securing this funding for our community.

“In a year when travel has been out of reach of many, this concert series brings the world to the Blue Mountains through music. Music can evoke exotic places and past eras, and through these concerts our audience can experience the anticipation, adventure and wonder we find in travel.”

This intrepid musical voyage includes modern-pop explorations of Indigenous identity; dynamic rhythms of Spanish Flamenco, Balkan Gypsy and Afro-Cuban Rumba; mystical sounds from ancient Malta; rockabilly Americana; and a mesmerising fusion of Persian jazz. The musical artists are culturally diverse Australians drawing from their backgrounds to create original compositions.

The line-up features:

  • 12 February – Leah Flanagan (contemporary pop/folk Indigenous singer-songwriter);
  • 19 February – Caribé (Cuban dance/percussion/jazz/storytelling);
  • 26 February – Skorba (Maltese-inspired original folk);
  • 5 March – Rachael Brady & The Moonshine Special (rockabilly/country/blues Americana);
  • 12 March – Lolo Lovina (Balkan Gypsy)
  • 19 March – Bandaluzia Flamenco (contemporary Spanish flamenco);
  • 26 March – Eishan Ensemble (Middle Eastern jazz fusion).

“The Blue Mountains Theatre was one of the first in our state to reopen following the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020 and this series will further support the revitalisation of the live music industry in the region,” Mayor Greenhill said.

Blue Mountains Theatre presents the Wanderlust Concert Series: 12 Feb to 26 March 2021. All tickets $35 per show, or choose any 3 shows for $30 per show.  Tickets can be purchased via the Box Office from Friday 18 December on 4723 5050 or online.
