The Uke café is a sing-along (strum-along) collection of folky, doo-wop, country, bluesy, jazz standards. (there’s a style for everybody)

• All songs (words & chords) are projected on a 2 metre screen so no music books are needed.

• Loaner ukes are available… along with loaner uke players to give you a pointer here or there… if you’d like a                           pointer here or there. So even if you’ve never played before …here’s your chance. (No strings attached… no pun intended)

PLUS There’s a full band, so all of those “beginner klinkers” (that we ALL occasionally hit) are beautifully blended right into that big beautiful sound of all of us playing together.

PS…Words, chords and even links to song videos can be emailed to anyone who might like a little up front practice before we all get together.

40 years playing!

Daniel Lids Fernandes has been playing and writing music for over 40 years; In Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney. Dan played throughout the mid-70s to 1987 when he stopped for personal reasons.

He returned to playing live in 2005. An engaging and communicative performer who over the last few years has been playing solo and sometimes additional musician friends also sit in. The music is mostly original; covering a broad range of genres.

Dan describes his music as a blend of acoustic Soul, reggae, folk and blues. Dan compliments his original compositions with selected interpretations of songs from other artists such as Bob Dylan, Beatles, Rolling Stones and Lucinda Williams. Dan has a natural vocal style which is delightfully suited to the music he writes.

Fred started playing the 12-string acoustic guitar in Sydney in the late 1960s, inspired and mentored by the likes of Doug Ashdown, Mike McLellan, Marion Henderson, Buddy Wilson and Phil Cuneen. He was a regular at PACT Folk, Sydney’s premier folk club that saw impromptu appearances by Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary.

He played with Pat Drummond’s Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom Band, regulars in the Sydney music scene, headlining at many of the university and protest movement concerts in aid of the anti- Viet Nam war movement. Pat’s website retrospectively refers to Fred as a “12-string guitar whiz kid”. Iva Davies (Icehouse) cites the band as a major influence.

After moving to Canberra in the mid-1970s Fred played with a wide range of Canberra’s musical luminaries and iconic musicians including Mike Hayes (the Pricklefarmer), Donal Baylor, Dave O’Neill, Bruce Packard, John Butler (the Canadian one), Kevin Abbey, Lainey Kier and Steve McDonald, John van Buuren, Rick Hay, and appeared on Eric Bogle’s CD, Endangered Species. He appeared on a variety of ads and soundtracks and have been a regular for many years, with a variety of bands and performers, at the National Folk Festival.

His recent and current projects include Craig Dawson’s extraordinary Lord Byron Five; a double-

CD work-in-progress with Pat, Geoff and Steve Drummond; a CD commemorating Gordon Lightfoot’s 75th birthday with Gary Luck; and a new blues band, The Northside Lemon Kickers. As a member of Celtic band, Humbug, he recorded and produced their recent CD, On Raglan Road.

As a solo performer his material ranges from traditional to contemporary.

Today at Beyond Q Fred is joined by the very talented George Breu on bass.

Michael Lemmer, Slide Guitar Blues Roots @ Beyond Q Books | Bar | Barista | Curtin | Australian Capital Territory | Australia

Beyond Q is hosting Michael Lemmer.

So who is Michael Lemmer?

Michael is a quiet, almost shy retiring kind of guy until he picks up his slide guitar and lets his music speak.

And then,

Well then – jaws drop as the quiet guy channels Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page – who all flirted with slide.

If you listen hard you will even hear a little touch of George Harrison – one of the world’s most influential guitarists who started playing slide in 1969 – albeit in a non blues style.

Michael will mesmerize you with his dexterity and intensity. It’s no wonder he has supported artists such as John King Cleary, Stephen Cummings, Phil Emmanuel, Mick Thomas and the Sure Thing.

Even the hardest to excite, jaded music reporters like The SMH’s Chris Johnson, have said “a guitarist whose prowess on the steel-bodied National tri-cone resonator is impressive . . . . a sound that can only be created with an excellent understanding of how sweetly a resonator guitar can sing”.

You haven’t heard of him? Fix that while you can!
