Blackboard plus Feature Act: The Shiny Bum Singers

This is a fun afternoon for those wanting to share their love of music and play, sing or recite in an inviting and friendly atmosphere. Put your name on the blackboard to perform, or just get along and listen to some great music.

The Shiny Bum Singers, established in 1999, perform the work songs of the Public Service in traditional working dress. True to folk tradition, the ‘Bums’ recycle well-known tunes and encourage audience singalong to parodies that satirise just about every issue that invites it. Based in Canberra, they have regularly performed to packed houses at the National Folk Festival and other folk venues in the ACT, New South Wales and Victoria, and entertained at Public Service conferences and dinners, including the prestigious Prime Minister’s awards.

Fresh from their sell-out mock opera “Seize the Day” the vocally inspiring and visually entertaining group will sing some favourites from their broad repertoire of over 300 songs.

 Admission:
$3 for MFS Members, Concessions, and Blackboard performers $5 for Others.
May vary for non-blackboard events
Under 16 y/o – FREE!
