About this event

Follow the music up the stairs to a beautiful Art Deco room, lit by candlelight, hidden in the heart of the city. The band is in the middle of the room, no stage, no production, just the music, their voices, their stories.

Lucky Oceans, Jessie Gordon, and Bill Lawrie have been playing, singing, and writing music for decades, although not together. Having finally found each other, they are exploring their sound together and bringing new life to old songs and new meaning to old stories.

The trio exudes the spirit of the Barrelhouse. Raucous drinking songs sit alongside the group’s original creations with Jessie’s gospel-tinged grooves, Bill’s impressionistic gems, and Lucky’s epic song, ‘The Bell’ which as sung by Jessie, was ‘The Moment’ of Fairbridge Festival 2021. 




Presented by:
Jessie Gordon

Jessie is a very sun-shy Perth red-headed singer and songwriter who brings her love of old-world roots music into the 21st Century. She has toured Australia, America, South East Asia, Germany, France, Spain, Poland, and the UK. She is also a 20-time FRINGE WORLD Music and Cabaret Award winner. Her original music is a combination of soulful blues, harmonic gospel, and joyful swinging country.

She has also recorded nine albums, including two with Mark Turner (Best Friends 2019 and Live at Kidogo 2021), an original album (A Work of Friction 2018), two intercontinental albums entitled Berlin Nights (2017) and Unknowable Journey (2020) with Berlin band Ginger Blues, the latter of which won the German Blues Award for 2020, and most recently the eponymous Sassafras (2021).
