Barbara Jeffrey and Lisa Maps bring a new energy to the Folk Redlands stage, as the featured performers on November 15.
Their acts follows Folk Redlands first performance at its new home at the Redland Bowls Club, Poinciana Avenue, Victoria Point last month. More than 20 performers took turns behind the mic showcasing some of the best Redland talent.
On November 15, the audience can get to know some new committee members through their music.
Barbara Jeffrey is a Deana Robert-style singer-songwriter/harpist who combines her classical training with folk influences to produce music from her soul.
She has performed in various Australian venues, including Yarra Grange and the Sydney Opera House reception hall. She has performed and toured as a member of the classically based trio Cimarosa and the Sydney based Ten Sopranos. Her music was featured in the wildlife documentary Dance of the Lyrebird.
Lisa Maps is a true storyteller who has been described (BMA Magazine) as having a 'lyrical heft and unassailable flair'.
Lisa began her music career in Canberra. Now based in Brisbane, she continues to charm with her vocal prowess and trademark banter, most recently opening for cabaret smash The IsoLate Late Show at the Logan Entertainment Centre.
The event runs from 1pm with a blackboard performance, preceding the featured acts from 3pm to 4pm.
