Retreat, 19 February 2022

Retreat Public Hall, NSW, Wemba Wemba Country

Retreat Public Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Wemba Wemba People.

This hall has been in Retreat for 100 years. In this time the community has seen the school come and go, the tennis club bounce into town, church service, weddings, funerals and birthday parties held and many a dance shoe step the boards on a weekly basis – still to this day.

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Retreat on Saturday, 19 February 2022 with Karen Lee Andrews and Juzzie Smith.

Opening the show will be local act, Sophie and Jarrod Bashford!

Sophie and Jarrod are a local brother and sister duo with remarkable intuitive performance skills. Sophie, aged 17 plays guitar and Jarrod, aged 15 will be playing accordion – an 80 year old button accordion that is their Grandma’s instrument, no less!  

In perfect sibling harmony, Jarrod learns a song by ear and then Sophie follows on with an accompaniment on guitar. 

BYO food and drink to the show.
