Adelaide’s Germein Sisters, winners of the Busking Championship (non-country) at the recent Tamworth Country Music Festival, will perform under the stars at Rawnsley Park Station in the Flinders Ranges on Saturday, April 5.
The talented trio – Georgia, Clara and Ella – will perform songs from their latest album Because You Breathe, recorded in Ireland with The Corrs’ producer Billy Farrell.
Rawnsley Park Station’s Woolshed Restaurant is offering a special dinner and show package, with a three-course menu featuring an antipasto sharing plate, a choice of Rawnsley Lamb Rump with Roasted Pumpkin Mash or Fillet of Kingfish with Brown Butter Shrimp Sauce for main, followed by Dark Chocolate Mousse or Apple Tart Tatin. Informal catering options and a bar will be available for concert-goers not dining in The Woolshed Restaurant.
Praised by critics and the media for their unique blend of pop/rock/folk, catchy meaningful lyrics and exquisite harmonies, the Adelaide-Hills based Germein Sisters have developed a strong following both in Australia and overseas. They performed at the 2013 Carols by Candlelight in Elder Park and Adelaide Fringe Festival, and Georgia Germein’s song Take My Hand was selected by the SA Tourism Commission for its current online international marketing campaign.
The Rawnsley Park concert will be the second time the Germein family have performed in the Flinders Ranges. The family has a strong connection with the Flinders Ranges – their father, Tim, is the nephew of the late Griselda and Reg Sprigg, of Arkaroola.
“The last time we performed in the Flinders Ranges was at Griselda Sprigg’s 80th birthday,” says Ella, who plays bass and electric cello. “Dad was the trumpet player in a jazz combo that entertained guests at Arkaroola – my sisters and brother Charlie were young primary school children at the time but we played a few songs.
“We had the best holiday ever in the Flinders Ranges – climbing rocks, exploring waterholes, making a campfire, and seeing the rock wallabies, kangaroos, emus and eagles. We loved looking at the stars too.”
Georgia Germein, the group’s songwriter, lead vocalist, pianist and guitarist, said the group were delighted to be invited to perform at Rawnsley Park Station. “We love meeting new people and travelling, especially to rural areas, and are constantly in awe of our beautiful country. We are excited about our visit to Rawnsley Park to experience what this beautiful part of the world has to offer.”
Rawnsley Park’s Tony Smith said that $10 from each ticket would be donated to the Bangor Bushfire Appeal.
