Fremantle Arts Centre’s intimate winter music program Gallery Sessions returns each Thursday night in August. Each show features a double bill of Perth’s most talented songwriters performing up-close and stripped back in FAC’s Main Gallery and Pavlich Room. With a small, cosy crowd and the beautiful backdrop of artworks from our latest exhibition Panacea, Gallery Sessions is a unique and unforgettable return to live music.

Despite his short career, Fremantle songwriter Jack Davies and his band The Bush Chooks’ rollicking live shows have already become a Freo institution. Here he’ll strip his witty folk tunes down to their brilliant core.

He’s joined by local alt-country singer Siobhan Cotchin’s, whose writing style echoes the effortless musing of Lucinda Williams and draws inspiration from Bob Dylan. Cotchin’s jangly melodies hover over effortless, elegant storytelling and have seen her star rise quickly. See why she has been nominated for WAM’s Song of The Year, Emerging Artist Awards at Nannup and Fairbridge Music Festivals and named as a triple j Unearthed top 10 artist for 2020.

Gallery Sessions begins with a guided tour of Panacea before audiences take their seats for the cabaret style show of songs and stories. Enjoy a heartfelt set from one artist before moving to the other performance space and doing it all again for the second half of the show.

Please note that the audience will be split into two groups so purchase tickets together in Audience Group 1 or 2 to ensure you’re seated with your friends or family.
