Live Spark 2013

Breeze into the week with a good dose of free live music each Sunday at Livespark.

01 December Kellie Lloyd / Seafarer
08 December Gentle Ben & His Sensitive Side
15 December Break Up Day SpecialBen Salter (The Gin Club) / The Bowls Club

Mardi Lumsden & The Rising Seas
Mardi captures the simplicity and intricacies of human nature in her songs. With her band, Mardi Lumsden & the Rising Seas, the songs are lovingly crafted; weaving stories together using banjos, glockenspiels and other instruments friends (and strangers) have passed along. Mardi Lumsden & the Rising Seas recorded their second EP, Wherever you go, there you are, with ARIA-award winning producer Magoo at his Applewood studio, a converted church west of Brisbane.

Danny Widdicombe
Danny has played guitar for Andrew Morris, Bernard Fanning and Karl Broadie, as well as touring the country as part of Tim Rogers’ Temperance Union. In 2008 he helped form the ARIA Award nominated group, The Wilson Pickers and last year Danny and fellow Wilson Picker, Andrew Morris, won the annual Grant McLennan Memorial Fellowship for 2010. He released his second solo album, Dominoes, in 2009 and this October he will release his third solo album, Find Someone.

After you’ve been mesmerised by the best tunes, stick around for some free hilarity with Livewired comedy from 6.30pm.

Brisbane Airport is keeping this event free.
