With the power to transport us to another time and place, music is something that has held us together over the course of the pandemic. Whether it be sending song recommendations to friends and family or watching live streamed performances, music connects us in a variety of ways.

Now, coming out of lockdown, the Potato Shed is pleased to announce that home grown Aussie musicians Charles Jenkins and David Cosma are bringing their original show, Australiana, to the Bellarine Peninsula on Friday 26 November.

Charles and David will be delivering original compositions and songs inspired by the land we walk on, the water that surrounds us, flora and fauna which awes us, events that shape us and the people who are the fabric of our lives. It’s a show where the line between audience and performers is blurred, giving the audience an intimate insight into two of Australia’s finest independent singer-songwriters.

With a career spanning over three decades, Charles Jenkins is one of Australia’s most respected singer songwriters – with 17 albums released, local and international tours and two ARIA award nominations with his band the Icecream Hands.

“Charles delivers the kind of set that astonishes in its depth, variety and good humour and reinforces Jenkins’ position as the songwriter’s songwriter,” says Matt O’Neil of Time Off Magazine.

David Cosma, with inspiring lyrics accompanied by sumptuous melodies and harmonies, together with his unique method of playing the guitar, guarantees an impassioned live performance. Religion, pop culture and nostalgic nuances, punctuate and accentuate his writing, triggering instant attention from audience and listeners.

It’s time to pack the golden Holden and hit the road. Charles Jenkins and David Cosma are heading to the Potato Shed in Drysdale for one exclusive performance.

The Potato Shed is located at 29-41 Peninsula Drive, Drysdale. To book tickets, phone (03) 5251 1998 or visit www.geelongaustralia.com.au/potatoshed.
