About the event


Following his recent MEMOIRS OF LOVE & WAR TOUR across Australia in 2023 to commemorate the long-awaited releases of two full-length albums “LOVE & WAR” and “MEMOIRS OF A TRAVELLING MIND”, folk/bluesman Ben Jansz closes this awesome triple roots bill.

Both albums will be released from MARCH on all online streaming platforms and be available for purchase at his shows on Vinyl, CD, and Download, along with other merchandise. This tour will also showcase unreleased/not yet recorded music from a new album in the works “INTEGRATE/INTERROGATE” which can only be heard at these shows on his Australian Tour. He invites you to open your hearts, bodies, and minds, into a safe space of emotional vulnerability, sharing stories of heartbreak, empowered healing experiences, and the process of integrating the lessons of life through the creation/sharing of art and music.

Joined by multi-award winning songwriter Ernest Aines. Noting over a decade of experience, Ernest’s uniquely pure and thoughtful sound has enchanted both fans and critics across the globe. He was recently announced as a Finalist for Artist of the Year by Folk Alliance Australia.

Ernest’s journey began with busking on the streets of Melbourne, and progressed to him gracing the stages of celebrated events like The Australian Open, The Melbourne Grand Prix, The Port Fairy Folk Festival, Rockhampton Riverfest, and Canberra’s Floriade Nightfest. He has appeared on stage at Ararat Live, The Palais Theatre, and Northern Arts Hotel, and his indie-folk styling and unique vocal delicacy has been compared to James Taylor, Jeff Buckley, Ray Lamontagne and Bon Iver.

As a special bonus performance, the show will open with emerging local folk/bluesmith Candice Alisha who is wowing audiences with her distinctive low end voice and melodic guitar accompaniment. Don’t miss her before she hits the bigtime.

Tickets: $24 + BF

Set times: Doors - 7.30pm Candice Alisha - 8.00pm Ernest Aines - 9.00pm Ben Jansz - 10.00pm
