Friday 12 February
We welcome back the wonderful Mike Brady to the Saucer Stage this coming February. Mike will be entertaining you with songs from his latest album 'Bloodlines - The Australian Irish Story' which is a collection of original songs, some with traditional feel and some contemporary but all with the ring of truth which is the Irish way. This album will stir any person with the slightest drop of Celtic blood in their veins. It is uplifting, it is sad and its very reflective. Amongst the musical stories are tales of fisherman, loggers, immigrants, and a number of Irish Australian topics. Be sure to book your tickets early for this one folks!
General Admission: $28.00
Door (GA): $30.00

‘I truly believe that Mike Brady is not only one of Australias underrated talents, he is one of our most unrecorded talents.As a writer he is exceptional and as a singer, he is unsurpassed. His Irish/Australian album is truly magnificent. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did’
‘Bloodlines, a collection of Irish/Australian story-songs composed and recorded by Mike Brady is the most fully realised album of his career. Brady’s choice of Irish and traditional Australian instruments is essential to the spirit of these powerful, moving stories. His sensitive vocal treatment brings each song to life’
