Starring Amelia Ryan and Libby O’Donovan
On a summer’s day in 1965, two women walked into the public bar of the Regatta Hotel in Brisbane, calmly chained themselves to the foot rail, and asked for a beer. This seemingly simple act would change the course of Australian urbanity – and a little less obviously – the course of Australian music for women.
Join cabaret powerhouses Amelia Ryan and Libby O’Donovan, as they share the story of what it took for our female singers of the 60s and 70s to be heard. Celebrate the likes of Lynne Randell, Marcie Jones, Little Patti, Judy Stone, Judy Cannon, Wendy Saddington and Alison McCallum, in an uplifting, raucous and nostalgic show that pays homage to the women who blazed the trails for future generations of Australian female pop and rock icons. Come and join us to bring these incredible women – and their music – out of the sidelines and into their rightful place in the heart of Australian music history.
