Act-Belong-Commit Virtual Main Stage

The physical Denmark Arts Markets Easter Market was cancelled for 2020 due to the strange times we are facing!

Instead of cancelling the Act-Belong-Commit Main Stage, we are proud to partner with Healthway promoting the Act-Belong-Commit message to present a Virtual Main Stage over the next 6 weeks!

11 Apr RastaJazz Duo
26 Apr Katie White
3 May Simon and Tammy London
10 May The New Roundabouts
17 May Geoff Waldeck
24 May Hannah Walker

Every Sunday from 5pm you will be able to watch a set of awesome music right here on this page, as well as on the Denmark Arts Facebook Page.  There will also be a Watch Party on Facebook! A Watch Party is where you and your friends get to watch the gig together and you can chat and clap in real time, in a chat stream (if you are an introvert – you can just watch and not be seen 🙂 ).

So far we have had Katie White and the RastaJazz Duo. You can see both these sets below. This week we have Simon & Tammy London, Sunday 3 May, 5pm.

Every week the Main Gig will have a one song introduction from the South Regional TAFE Denmark Campus Certificate II Band!

Thank you also to Great Southern Music for working with us to bring you this project.  Join their Facebook page to stay in the Great Southern Music loop here and you can find their website here.

The Newroundabouts – 10 May

Country-flavours abound when the vocals of Cathy Fotios (ukulele) and Tony King (guitar) combine. This set will feature some original tunes plus their own versions of their favourite tunes.

“An absence of live gigs has seen this duo do a lot more bike-riding, gardening and netflix watching. It is sooooo nice to be playing again. We hope that you enjoy… the New Roundabouts.”

Simon & Tammy London 3 May

When they sing together Simon and Tammy London bring a room to a standstill, delivering you to a special place, a rarity. Songs of yearning and restlessness, highway miles and southern isolation. Supports include The Stray Sisters, Kasey Chambers, Mia Dyson, Liz Stringer and Jen Cloher.

Support Simon and Tammy’s music by following them on Facebook and buying their music! 

Watch and listen to their beautiful harmonies below or join the Watch Party at 5pm Sunday 3 May on the Denmark Arts Facebook page or the Act-Belong-Commit Virtual Main Stage event page!

Katie White Sunday 26 April

The Act-Belong-Commit Virtual Main Stage.

Katie White is from Denmark, Western Australia and started her career at age 14 when she supported The Waifs in-front of thousands of people. Currently at age 26 she has taken her music as far as London, toured around Australia and played hundreds of gigs in her 10 year career. She has also been nominated for 5 WAMI song of the year awards and won in 2016 with her song River. Katie has released 4 records in her time, all of which are original music written and arranged by herself.  Recently, Katie has worked with Joel Quartermain of Eskimo Joe in Melbourne to record and produce 2 stunning singles, and in May 2019 she opened a sold out Waifs concert for the second time.  Katie’s ultimate gift is her voice, which has the ability to move people very deeply, sometimes making them cry, and always leaving an imprint in their hearts. Her voice is her own, rich, soulful, warm, and unforgettable. Her songs are deeply poetic, honest, and touching, with songs like ‘Daddy in the Sky’ revealing the most devastating times in her life, to songs like ‘Home’ about unconditional love and devotion. She is not afraid of talking about the rawness of things and goes there, in songs like Stained and Without Naming It. Katie’s honest style of writing is refreshing and powerful and her authentic and confident stage presence takes you by the hand and holds you there. Katie’s music is the kind that will stay with you long after the show is finished.

Please support Katie’s music by buying her music and following her social media sites 🙂
