WAM Goldfields Touring Circuit
WAM’s new Goldfield-Esperance Touring Circuit will traverse over 1200 kilometres in a bid to explore the thirst for contemporary live music in the region.
The pilot tour will see four free performances over four days all headlined and supported by local acts in community venues and public spaces across the Goldfields-Esperance region; with all shows supported by local government associations and arts organisations.
Esperance is up first! With a power-packed local lineup set to entertain punters at the Cannery Arts Centre on Thursday 12 April.
Co-headlining the entire tour are two bands from opposite ends of the region: Leonora-based act The Tapping Stickz, containing three members who’ve recently recorded solo tracks on WAM’s upcoming Demos From The Northern Goldfields compilation release, and Esperance’s own three-piece Grand Casual, who are due to release their first single Soldiers to coincide with this tour. Headliners will appear alongside local supports including John Ratcliff, Rasgueado, and Rachel Vibart.
This rare initiative presented in partnership with the Goldfields-Esperance Development Commission as part of the “Local Projects, Local Jobs” funding program, will provide regional musos with much needed opportunities to hone their craft on stage and build new intra-regional connections, while also introducing local communities to the vast breadth of talent hidden in their own backyards!
