Thank you to the Blue Mountains community who came out in the freezing cold weather last Sunday to see and listen to the fabulous Spooky Men Chorale. The Heathens felt very privileged to be the support act to these great performers. It was a sell out crowd that filled the Blackheath Community Hall and all proceeds were donated to a most worthy cause – The Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group. Thanks must also go to the organisers, the cake makers, the sound guys and everyone who came – it was a great success. Photos below are thanks to Diane Green.
2pm Sunday 17th June 2018 – Blackheath Community Hall
For a stupendous Sunday afternoon’s entertainment, come to this concert hosted by The Heathens community choir and featuring the Spooky Men’s Chorale. The Spooky Men have a CV as long as your arm – they have appeared at our National Folk Festival, festivals all over Europe, the UK and NZ, made guest appearances on Spicks and Specks, the New Inventors’ Grand Final and The Mix.
You will leave feeling uplifted and full of goodwill, having laughed and cried as The Spooky Men swing between wonderful songs of ridiculous hilarity and songs of great tenderness, shimmeringly perfect and human in a very resonant way.
The afternoon’s music kicks off with the passion and enthusiasm of The Heathens – Blackheath’s own community choir. Afternoon tea (homemade) will be available at 4pm when the concert concludes.
This concert marks the beginning of Refugee Week. All proceeds will go to support the wonderful work of the Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group.

It was a fabulous way to end our year, joining The Blue Mountains City Band and conducted by Paul Terracini for a wonderful Christmas concert. Here are some photos taken by Aidan Grilli (lovely partner to our Bridget). Thank you Aidan – and thank you to those who came to listen and contributed to supporting the Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group. Happy Christmas everyone! See you in the New Year!
The Heathens are singing with The Blue Mountains City Band and conducted by Paul Terracini on Sunday 10th December at St Hilda’s Anglican Church in Katoomba. All are welcome – a gold coin donation which will be donated to the Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group. Hope to see you there!
