Anthea and George

Saturday 16 July 8:00pm
Whispered Conversations in Unison

Level 3 Auditorium Greek Community Building Lonsdale St Melbourne
Entry $10 - Bookings Essential call: 9662 3307 website

Anthea and George Iliopoulos' independent acoustic rock style evidently reveals Anthea's previous work in rockbands (Pearl the Ultimate Janis Joplin Show) and George's love of 'entekno' folk/rock. These blend well acoustically in the theme of 'Whispered Conversations in Unison' taking the audience on a journey through a myriad of musical genres penned by these two artists.

Along with Kim Moon on Double bass, Tony Iliou on guitar, Michael Kontochristos on percussion and David Thomas on flute, Anthea and George have created an interesting and sometimes challenging way of expressing what lies beneath their view of the world and within their hearts, to comfortably converse these into 'Whispered Conversations in Unison between close musical friends'.

Sunday 10 July 3:00pm

........ lots of laughs, loves, and larrikanisms to be had.... (as is the theme of this years Cygnet Festival)

Accompanying Anthea on this trip to The Cygnet Folk Festival is dancer ‘Sabelle’…. showcasing her Bellydance talents as well as teaching YOU the Zorba dance! (unless you already know it in which case just join in!! )
