Unsung at Frankston Arts Centre

Don't miss this Daytime Music + Theatre performance celebrating our pioneering women of Australian pop & rock.

"Unsung quite literally gives voice to the real stories behind timeless Australian songs." - Glam Adelaide

Event Description

Celebrating our pioneering women of Aussie Pop & Rock

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 Australian history - and a little less obviously - the course of music in Australia for women, forever.

Join award-winning cabaret powerhouse duo Amelia Ryan and Libby O’Donovan for 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 more.

An uplifting and nostaligic performance that pays homage to the women who blazed the trail 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 Australian music history!
