The sensational sounds of ARIA award-winning a cappella group The Idea Of North will reverberate through Mayfield Shearing Shed at Oberon on March 8.
Surrounded by the O’Connell Art Show in a beautiful country setting, the show will be hosted by O’Connell Public School.
The Idea Of North is a quartet of musicians serious about their music without taking themselves too seriously.
Their instrumentation includes soprano, alto, tenor and bass vocals with a little bit of vocal percussion thrown in.
The group has a beautifully distinct sound and style and cross many musical genres: jazz, folk, gospel, pop, classical, comedy.
With nine albums in its catalogue, a significant local and international fan base, and increasingly regular local and international work, it would seem that despite the difficulty, people are getting better at describing The Idea of North to their friends.
You may have heard and enjoyed the CDs (some of them award-winning), but the best stuff actually happens live and can’t be recorded onto plastic, no matter how shiny it is.
The Idea Of North will perform at Mayfield Shearing Shed, 845 O’Connell Rd, Oberon, on Saturday, March 8. Doors open at 6.30pm for 7.30pm show. Tickets: $50 include show and supper served during interval. A bus will operate between Bathurst, O’Connell and Mayfield ($10).
