One of the most hard working and anthemic folk punk acts to come out of Australia, Benny Mayhem has covered a lot of ground, literally and figuratively.
His latest single, ‘Bulwer Street Waltz’, has seen him tour the UK and Europe again through 2018 with his band, playing Festivals and Club Shows.
The track is a no-holds-barred blend of Irish folk rhythms and melodic folk-punk energy, garnished with a modern hint of pub rock.
From being primarily a solo artist in 2016, the last 2 years has seen the Benny Mayhem experience evolve into a 5 piece band which combines power and harmonies in his unique folk-punk style.
Musically, they blend the roots of the folk punk genre (bands such as The Pogues, Flogging Molly, Arcade Fire) with an Australian element that has been compared in style to Paul Kelly and other storytellers.
Ben’s roots are in the South West Australian town of Albany, famous for its whales and the beautiful yet treacherous Southern Ocean that has inspired much of his work. At the Boat Shed Market this Sunday Benny will perform the popular ‘Unplugged’ Acoustic Folk Punk Experience.
ALBANY BOAT SHED MARKET
EVERY SUNDAY MORNING – ON THE WATERFRONT 10AM TO 1 PM
Irish born author and musician Adam Morris is the lead singer and songwriter for the blues and roots outfit Murder Mouse Blues Band. The relaxed atmosphere at the Boat Shed Market is a great place to spend a little time on Sunday morning and enjoy Adam’s world class music.
The Boat Shed Market aims to deliver a diverse range of high quality produce for locals and visitors alike. The recent introduction of a Regional Table to the Market provides a way for producers who are unable to open a stand-alone stall to make their produce available to customers. This week the Regional Table will include:
Salad greens, potatoes, broccolini and more from Bathgate Farms;
Certified organic tomatoes, pumpkin, cucumbers and watermelon from Gledhow Organics;
Large garlic bulbs from Mt Barker Fresh Garlic;
and new season Feijoa’s from Rainbow Coast Produce
A range of talented local musicians have generously donated their time for an extended Market this Sunday, 27th Jan. The concert is in memory of Graeme Waugh and to raise funds to support heart health.
All donations on the day will be gratefully accepted and passed in full to a charity that supports heart health. Please note times are approximate and may vary on the day. We will post any changes. Look forward to seeing you there.
