    Rhodeworks Bluegrass Americana at Nest

    RhodeWorks are an award-winning bluegrass folk band who play fast paced, high energy folk music, introducing a set of traditional and well-loved bluegrass alongside their original material.

    THE MOVIES

    28 September - 4 October THE MEG (M)  - For the Teenagers

    A deep-sea submersible--part of an international undersea observation program--has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific... with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew--and the ocean itself--from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below

    5-11 October MAYA THE HONEYBEE: THE HONEY GAMES (G) - For the Little Ones

    When an overenthusiastic Maya accidentally embarrasses the Empress of Buzztropolis, she is forced to unite with a team of misfit bugs and compete in the Honey Games for a chance to save her hive.

    Live Music Spring Weekend

    Live Music Spring Weekend

    Live Music Spring Weekend at Nest 22-23 September: Cookie Baker Live on Stage Saturday night + King River Rising 6 piece groove band Sunday afternoon 

    Saturday Night 7pm on the Nest stage

    Contemporary folk singer/songwriter COOKIE BAKER comes to Nest at her most personal, personable and intimate best, previewing material from her upcoming album.  

    Tickets $30 include Dessert Supper at intermission 

    Buy tickets here

    Cookie Baker is a pint-sized melodic force to be reckoned with.   A walking, talking exercise in compact contradiction and adaptation. As gutsy in person as she is empathetic on stage, as careful with her picked guitar as she is unapologetic with her incisive words, as warm in her interactions as she is unafraid of bringing airtime to the hard stuff.

    More often than not penning songs of keenly observed lost love and found habits, Cookie speaks honestly of longing, loss, displacement and isolation, and the emotional debris resulting from these experiences.

    Raised on a farm by the seaside in rural South Australia, the deceivingly gentle melodies, cool wordsmithery, and sparkling grit of her vocals that audiences have come to adore have taken Cookie performing around Australia and brought her to share stages with many esteemed Australian artists, including Augie March, Kate Miller-Heidke, Ben Lee, Angie Hart (Frente!), Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything), Little Birdy, and The Audreys.
    Her ongoing collaboration with Sydney-based engineer and producer, Michael Carpenter, produced the cracking first single, Little Engine, paved the way for second single, The Summer (featuring Tim Rogers of Australia’s beloved You Am I), and the sweeping third single, Don’t Start A Fight. Don't Start A Fight is a charity single dedicated to Cookie’s best friend and musical right-hand man, Jaan Kiploks, a Cystic Fibrosis sufferer. All proceeds from the digital-only single will be donated to Cystic Fibrosis SA and other CF-related charities. 

    Cookie Baker is also a vocalist with festival favourite Sun Records tribute, ‘Sun Rising – The Songs That Made Memphis’, and is the founder and director of Melbourne-based contemporary choir collective, ‘If You See Her, Say Hello
    Playing only one show in the region and coming highly recommended by her friend Fanny Lumsden, don't miss this concert at your very own Nest, Tumbarumba.

    Sunday Groove Session 

    Melbourne 6 piece Reggae Groove Band KING RIVER RISING will be performing on the Nest outdoor stage aka the Deck on Sunday 23 September from 2pm

    Tickets $30 include roving pizzas

    BUY Earlybird Tickets here or take your chance at the door


    King River Rising are an 5 - 8 piece groove group that push the boundaries of Reggae Rock while paying homage to the genre’s predecessors.
    With an eclectic fusion of Reggae that effortlessly mixes with their Rock roots, Melbourne based King River Rising blends deep groove with alluring harmony.

    Often compared to artists such as Sublime, John Mayer and Groundation, King River Rising draw from many of the player’s deep roots in Blues and Rock; while putting their own spin on front man Ward Hancock’s love of Rocksteady and Dub. 

    After gigging their latest release titled “Lucid” relentlessly for the past seven months, 2017 has seen them cruise down to the Mornington Peninsula supporting Queensland’s top Reggae acts, play hot gigs and drinking cold beers at upper-class wineries in country Victoria and take tireless trips to Sydney and the Blue Mountains. 

    Listen here for an intro to their gig

    With an arsenal of enthralling originals and tastefully enticing covers, King River Rising will be playing Tumut River Brewery the Friday Night and at Nest Sunday afternoon.

    Book tickets to both Cookie Baker & King River Rising gigs at Nest and we'll shout you a drink on Sunday.
