Mahalia Barnes and the Soul Mates, with special guest Karen Lee Andrews
Sunday 11 December
Sunday 11 December, 2022, 6.30pm (doors open 5.45pm).
Mahalia Barnes has been in and around music her entire life. Throughout her childhood years she was exposed to everything from Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett to Ike + Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder, all of which helped shape her into the powerhouse soul and blues vocalist that has jaws dropping every time she picks up a mic.
Don’t expect a quiet, polite, restrained gig, or a gimmicky soul show with costumes & scripted banter. This band covers the full range of the soul music spectrum, the show is dynamic, organic, raw & exciting. Great players, great singing & so much feeling.
Karen Lee Andrews is in possession of a unique sense of artistic purpose. Surrounded by music her entire life, Karen’s career to date has largely revolved around classic soul and rhythm and blues sounds. But in recent years, as her musicality has evolved, she’s been leaning more towards blues. Her songcraft is built on a thorough knowledge of blues, gospel and soul music and motored by an undeniable hunger to connect. Yet the defining ingredient is Karen’s unshakeable artistic passion.
A wonderful opportunity to enjoy one of Australia’s best singer-songwriters performing in one of the region’s best music venues at Tallagandra Hill.
