Sunas kick off sunny Spring Live at Bond music series

Queensland’s premier Celtic group, Súnas launch the Spring season of the free Live at Bond community music series.

The afternoon of music and entertainment will kick off at 3pm on Sunday, September 30, at Bond University’s ADCO Amphitheatre.

The fiery four-piece band features multi-instrumentalists and vocal harmonies comprised of the talents of Sarah Calderwood, Mannie McAllister, Paul Brandon and Michael Patrick.

Between the four band members, they use a combination of vocals, flute, whistles, bouzouki, mandolin, guitar, bodhran, gazoukie and fiddle.

Known for their fun and engaging stage presence, SĂşnas promises to deliver a thrilling experience at Bond University playing a unique combination of original, contemporary and traditional tunes and songs.

Played on radio stations throughout Australia and the world, their second album, Celtic Road was released in 2011 and spent over ten weeks in the ARIA classical/world charts, climbing to number four and making the ABC’s top 10 best-selling albums of 2011.

The outdoor music series has been running seasonally since 2011, on the last Sunday of the month through autumn and spring, from 3pm-5:15pm.

To date, Live at Bond has featured some of South East Queensland’s best local artists, with plenty more great talent scheduled for this year including Juzzie Smith and renowned jazz drummer, John Morrison.

Wine, beer, champagne, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be available for purchase at each event.

Live at Bond is proudly supported by Zarraffa’s Coffee. The Zarraffa’s Coffee Caddy is a community service initiative; 50 per cent of the proceeds will go to Zarraffa’s Coffee charities, while the other 50 per cent of proceeds will go to Bond University’s nominated charity, the Sunland Foundation.

SĂşnas will be supported by local Trinity Lutheran College school students and stars in the making, Emily Norman and Amy Min, with Kylie Mitchell-Smith from Rabbit Radio hosting the event.
