SUMMER SAPPHIC: feat. Annie-Rose Maloney + Baby Blue (Solo)

April 21, 2024

Sunday 21 April, 4-6pm

SummerSapphic is a fortnightly event series which is inclusive but celebrates queer women. The first six sessions feature an enviable lineup of musicians who perform from 4-6pm. Doors open 3pm, kitchen open till 9.30pm and bar open till 11pm. Come mingle, enjoy great food, drinks, and music.

Annie-Rose Maloney plays country-ish songs and usually sits on a stool. Sitting on Annie’s right, so that she can see what chords are being played, is Jess Ellwood on lead guitar. The pair have played for so many years together that they have a soulful and comfortable musical understanding like no other. Annie writes songs that speak about the kernels of pain that lie in the deepest places of our being, and Jess chugs along with sensitive guitar lines to bring it all together.

Baby Blue (Solo) – Rhea Caldwell performs with an ease few can claim to possess. Having cut their teeth as the lead guitarist of Michael Beach and as bassist for Gena Rose Bruce, Rhea’s songwriting taps into 60s surf rock with a sprinkling of Americana and a healthy serve of indie pop. A songwriters songwriter, Rhea is one to catch playing songs written for their band Baby Blue, in rare solo mode.

SummerSapphic is held in our Popup beer garden which is mostly covered but still exposed to the elements. If the weather is extreme, we will go ahead in the lounge area inside the bar.
