Thursday, all ages open mic. Time: Register 6pm music 6:30-830pm. After a successful winter season of "Show us your arts", it's back monthly on the first Thursday of each month. Come down and share your songs, music, poetry register via firstname.lastname@example.org or just turn up on the night and join in the fun.
Friday, Kerryn Fields (NZ) and Jess Parker, free. So with the image in mind, "If Ellen DeGeneres and Tracy Chapman had asked Johnny Cash to be their sperm donor, the result would have been Kerryn Fields", prepare to imagine an evening with Kerryn. Hailing from farming land in the heart of New Zealand, Fields grew up amongst the storytellers in sheds, a talent she now brings to the stage, along with her unique style of alt-country song writing. With Jess Parker (rare solo show).

Sunday - Open Mic
Saturday, Ed Keupper, solo. In addition to his just announced shows with The Aints! Ed Kuepper will also take to the road for a series of regional dates as he starts preparing material for a new solo album.
"I'm hitting the road again this September and doing a pretty select number of mainly solo shows [mainly solo because there is a good chance of some very special guests popping up from time to time].
I'll be debuting a swag of new material which will hopefully see light of day on my planned next solo album "Electricity, the High Priest of all Security" plus pulling apart some familiar and some not so familiar tunes from my past catalogue to see what makes it all tick... I'm looking forward to it. Hope to see you there.
Former ARIA award winner, Saint, Laughing Clown and owner of some 50-plus albums bearing his name, Ed Kuepper will take in first time appearances at The Bridge as part of a regional tour.
