Ain’t no love in the heart of the city



Ain’t no Love in the Heart of the City

Canberra folk singer extraordinaire, Cassidy Richens, and music legend Dave O’Neill debut their new duo, Cass & Dave, in this special gig at The Public Theatre. Performing new arrangements of work by iconic singers including Maria Muldaur, Mary Coughlan, K.D. Lang and Etta James, this intimate performance bridging blues, soul and jazz, will leave you with songs to wander into the night with.

Dave O’Neill is a top multi-instrumentalist who has toured the world with Eric Bogle and played with a host of other international acts. Both he and Cassidy are known for being playful, mischievous and wild musicians. They’ve never performed together like this, and the combination promises to be electric.

The precinct will officially launch on Saturday 13th September from 10am, when visitors will be able to experience local cuisine from the Benedict House cafe/ restaurant,  tours through the historic buildings, refurbished rooms and spaces curated by the Lost and Found Office, a public talk by master furniture craftsman Evan Dunstone, open studios and workshops at The Artists Shed and live music throughout the day, culminating with a concert in the Music Room featuring a rare solo performance by musician and internationally recognised multi-instrumentalist, Dave O’Neill.
