King B-Fine is Afrikaya’s unique & lively Rastafarian front man. King lives by the Rastafarian philosophy & the tradition of honouring that everyone is born royal. Originally from war torn Sierra Leone, King B-Fine now calls Australia home and resides in West Hobart with his Tasmanian wife & young family. King B-Fine’s passion for performing started early, his musical influences include the legends of reggae & afro beat such as Marley, Tosh & Fela Kuti. King’s musical achievements are impressive, as is his list of musical awards. He has toured Europe, shared the stage with international reggae musicians, headlined an Australian music festival in Qld and was an Australia Day Award Finalist in Sydney. What is equally impressive is that King composes and produces his own music under his labels, Fine Records & Royal Movement Records. He has released numerous albums and singles with accompanying music videos.

FREE EVENTS
12noon – 1:30pm

Luke Plumb and The Ceilidh Band Session would be celebrating the emergence and reclamation of traditional music in Ireland from the ‘40s and ‘50s. We will be playing repertoire from one of the champion ceilidh bands to come out of that era – the Tulla Ceilidh Band, and the reinvigorated interest in songs of the time. The old ceilidh was an informal occasion of dance, song and spoken word. For this event our performance will be the same, and as such any passing traffic wanting a dance or to join a chorus will be encouraged to get involved.  Luke Plumb: tenor banjo and mandolin + Leueen Barber: fiddle + Peter Daffy: guitar and vocals + Dave McNamara: accordion

RESCHEDULED DUE TO A COVID CLOSE CONTACT
We apologise for the inconvenience and we hope to have Xenos play at Salamanca Arts Centre in the near future. 
1:30pm – 3pm

Xenos – Songs of the Roma people from the Balkans

Anne Hildyard and Rob Bester spent many years living in Europe, learning from some of the finest Balkan musicians. Rob’s driving percussion, Anne’s soaring saxophone and gaida melodies, along with trumpet and accompaniment on synth and accordion by Dave McNamara are the perfect backing for the spectacular vocals of Anne and her daughter, Sabine Bester. Songs of the Roma people from the Balkans, sung with passion.
