Concert and Garage Sale


Penelope Wells offers her talent to the East Timor Sisters for this fundraiser on Friday evening 29th February @ 7pm.

Penelope’s performance explores regions of the heart, dark and otherwise - from soul to torch, to Tom Waits and beyond. After 30 years promoting, producing and directing others in the entertainment industry, Penelope stepped up onto the stage in the last few years with shows at Bar Me and other Sydney venues to sell-out audiences. Penelope will be accompanied by on piano, guitar and ukulele by Peter Bailey. Peter recently musically produced Fingerprints featuring Avigail Herman, Under My Skin for Lucy Cornell & Mark Bizeray and Singing over the Bones and the The Other Woman for Lisa Schouw, the producer of this show. Lisa Schouw is formerly of Girl Overboard band, performs her own one woman shows, including at the Opera House and the Performance Space and in her own The Journey School where people who wish to sing are coached to at least perform one song in public. Lisa channels Nina Simone among other great singers.
