New event in Subi to hit all the right notes

See Subiaco has teamed up with local boutique event producer Tender is the Night to present a day of free, family-friendly pop-up concerts along a trail through the heart of Subiaco on Saturday 23 March.
Each incredible local artist will be accompanied by The Tender Strings quartet, playing arrangements of their songs by Western Australian composers.
The trail of shows starts at the Subi Farmers Market at 10am with multi-award-winning country artist Natasha Shanks from The Little Lord Street Band. Browse the local craft stalls and fresh produce while enjoying Natasha’s heartfelt songs.
At 12pm, Postal Walk will come alive with the stunning three-part harmonies of folk artists Simone and Girlfunkle. While you’re there, grab some lunch from nearby cafes and explore the book shops, record stores and other specialty boutiques along Rokeby Road.
At 2.30pm, Strings in Subi will bring the indie sounds of Joe Caddy of Figurehead and Tanaya Harper to Golden West Brewing Co. Come enjoy the courtyard sun and freshly brewed beers, with drink specials available on the day.
The finale for the trail of shows will be held at the Subi Night Market at Market Square Park, which features over 40 international cuisines and thrift fashions stalls. From 5.30pm, the Tender Strings quartet will accompany Ghost Care’s Beau Torrance, Seychelles afrobeat extraordinaire Grace Barbé, and WA’s much loved ARIA award-winning blues artist Abbe May. Bring your picnic rugs, find some delicious food from the stalls and enjoy the stunning music under the stars.
City of Subiaco Mayor David McMullen said, “Strings in Subi offers a unique one-time-only musical experience for the whole family to enjoy, at several Subiaco locations. If you haven’t been to Subi in a while, or want to visit the Subi Night Market before it winds up in April, then come along; watch a few performances, and soak up all of the fantastic food, drink and atmosphere Subiaco has to offer.”
