Long-time musical acquaintances finally come together on stage to present an eclectic selection of contemporary folk-influenced songs that will appeal to a wide audience. Rusty is Russell Churcher and The Saint is David De Santi.

Be transported with Zumpa to forgotten Italian fishing villages, moonlit olive groves and a hard life under a hot sun where peasants play music to celebrate life with a fierce sense of humour.

The evening will be opened by local support act The Wayfaring Strangers, joined by special guests from Upper Lansdowne’s own Lost Souls.
