Live Music Lake Mac - Felicity Urquhart & Josh Cunningham (The Waifs)

Next date: Thursday, 16 December 2021 | 06:30 PM to 10:00 PM

Join Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham for a fabulous performance at Rathmines Theatre in December 2021!

Live Music Lake Mac is a series of COVID-safe live music events taking place in Lake Macquarie, supporting local and NSW performers.

We are excited to present Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham (The Waifs) at Rathmines Theatre on Thursday 16 December.

Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham

Understated but never unsophisticated, unpretentious and unlike anything else, Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham are poised to unleash songs and stories of undeniable beauty upon hearts and ears.

Josh (as a member of The Waifs), and Felicity in her own right, have both enjoyed lengthy, successful, enduring musical careers. A collective haul of Golden Guitars, ARIA Awards, multi-platinum album sales and extensive touring over nearly three decades forms a body of work that serves as a ready definition of success.

Their musical uniting was as unscripted as it was unforeseen. In January 2020, Felicity and Josh were invited to join Song Club - a creative collective that tasked members with writing a song a week. This challenge gave the pair a lifeline to creativity and community, as well as an abundance of new material. They generated enough, in fact, to make a whole album, The Song Club. Out now through ABC Music, this new album is debuting at number 1 on the ARIA Country Album Charts and number 10 on the ARIA Album Charts.

Support act - Piper Butcher

Piper is a local performer, she's independent and she's very, very good.

Ready to take the world by storm, Piper Butcher released her EP 'September' on the dawn of the month itself, with the outstanding success of reaching number 1 in the Alternative Album iTunes charts and number 2 in the All Genre Album iTunes charts.

With Americana meets rock 'n' roll influences from the likes of Lukas Nelson, Chris Stapleton and Stevie Nicks, any performance of Piper's gives an insight into her unique sound and fresh style. From a full band sound to an exhilarating, heartfelt solo performance, Piper showcases her passion for song, and her own music is no exception.
