The Bell by Candlelight: Barrelhouse Trio
618 Hay St Mall, Perth WA
Follow the music up the stairs to a beautiful Art Deco room, lit by candlelight, hidden in the heart of the city. The band is in the middle of the room, no stage, no production, just the music, their voices, their stories. Lucky Oceans, Jessie Gordon, and Bill Lawrie have been playing, singing, and writing music for decades, although not together. Having finally found each other, they are exploring their sound together and bringing new life to old songs and new meaning to old stories. The trio exudes the spirit of the Barrelhouse. Raucous drinking songs sit alongside the groups original creations with Jessies gospel-tinged grooves, Bills impressionistic gems, and Luckys epic song, The Bell which as sung by Jessie, was The Moment of Fairbridge Festival 2021.
