Local musician Kellie O’Donnell says she is excited to be part of the ‘classic album’ phenomenon sweeping the Central West live music scene at the moment ahead of her performance of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’ at Jayes Gallery on 19 February.
“There is an amazing buzz throughout the local scene at the moment, and hopefully It's a reflection of how much people are enjoying the classic album sessions,” Kellie said.
“It is so enjoyable to play these albums to listening audiences who appreciate live, stripped back versions of amazing music that has stood the test of time. “
While the concept of the classic album performance is not a new one, it is fresh to the Central West music scene and is growing in popularity.
Cowra wine bar ‘The Oxley’ began the sessions a year ago and the concept has now been embraced by venues in other towns.
Jayes Gallery Director Libby Oldham says she is excited to be presenting a roster of amazing local artists for ‘Classic Nights at Jayes’ right through to the end of the year and perhaps beyond. Their take on the winning formula also includes hand-made wood-fired pizza straight from the oven.
“Kellie performed Carole King’s Tapestry at Jayes last year and the atmosphere was magical ,” Libby said. “It was great to see everyone reliving their youth through the music, singing along one minute and quietly taking it all in the next.”
“Molong has really embraced the concept, so I’m advising everybody to book early, as we’re confident all of these sessions will sell out.”
