Sun 22 GOODWILLS MALENY HOUSE CONCERT: "GONE MOLLY" (Rebecca Wright and Sally Harris) + The Goodwills. Popular Brisbane folk duo Gone Molly are the featured artists for The Goodwills' next house concert on October 22. Over just two years, this exciting duo has become well known on the Australian folk festival and club circuit. They most recently performed at the Neurum Creek and Maleny music festivals in September.Sally's songs bring together a love of history, mythology, traditional song, tunes and folk music sessions. She and cellist/singer Rebecca Wright weave these songs and stories into contemporary arrangements for cello, guitar and vocal harmonies. For this concert they will be joined by well-known musician and Maleny local Jem Dunlop on guitar. Rebecca and Sally are currently finalising their debut CD with producer Pix Vane-Mason at his Conondale studios. The album was financed through crowd-funding portal Pozible. Given the (probable) warmer weather, this house concert starts at 3pm. The Goodwills and guest singer/fiddle player Helen Rowe will start off with a bracket, then afternoon tea, followed by the special guests. Starts at 2pm. Tickets are $15/$12 and afternoon tea will be available. BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL - or call 0438-525-119
