Held at Folklore Café in Port Adelaide is a wondrous little event called Myths and Folklore (The Port River Sessions), and what a way to enjoy a summery Sunday evening it was. A lovely venue on the waterfront, the café oozed easy going charm; macramé hangers with succulents swung down from the beams above the decking and a candle and plant were the centre piece of every table.
On the roster to provide the tunes was Duncan Turner, Self Preservation Society, White Lightnin’ & the Thunder Four, Prawnhead and Dead Lucky. The evening was infused with a mixture of folk, country rock, rockabilly and blues. Whether you sat inside or out, the river breeze carried away the heat, just as the music carried away your cares.
There was good, wholesome food, crisp ales and wines thanks to The New Market Hotel, and glowing fairy lights for when the sunshine faded. So if you’re looking for somewhere to hang out with friends, listen to good music and eat and drink delicious things, you’re lucky because there’s one more Myths and Folklore event happening this year on December 20. So get down there and check out how this little venue in Port Adelaide has created a great thing.
