On a hot summer’s day in 1965, Merle Thornton and Rosalie Bogner walked into the public bar of the Regatta Hotel in Brisbane, calmly chained themselves to the bar rail, and ordered a beer. What happened next would change the course of music in Australia for women, forever.
Join award-winning cabaret powerhouses Amelia Ryan and Libby O’Donovan, in a rollicking, raucous celebration of songs and stories from 1960s Australia. Hear the likes of Lynne Randell, Little Patti, Judy Stone, Marcie Jones, Margret Roadknight, Wendy Saddington, and Alison McCullum, in an uplifting and nostalgic hour that pays homage to the women who blazed the trails for generations to come.
Through history, heart, and hilarity, they bring these incredible women – and their music - out of the sidelines and into their rightful place in Aussie music history!
