16th July River Festival

The Rockhampton River Festival is set to return 14-16 2017! Celebrate, create, congregate and consume at the newly revitalised riverfront! The Rockhampton River Festival is a free event for all ages, however entry fees apply to specific ticketed events throughout the festival.

WOMEN IN DOCS (Chanel Lucas and Roz Pappalardo) perform on SUNDAY 16th July. They are known for their raw, exciting, upbeat sounds, well-considered (and often humorous) lyrics, crisp, acoustic guitar and soaring harmonies. The act gather large, loyal crowds wherever they play – including all major music and folk festivals across Australia and the USA. Their music is reminiscent of the Indigo Girls and the Waifs, with a little bit of Dixie Chicks thrown in.

Originally from Townsville and Innisfail, Chanel Lucas and Roz Pappalardo, first sang their way into the hearts of the Australian music loving public in the late ’90’s with their self-titled EP from which the track, ‘Tin Roof’, was immediately playlisted by ABC radio, launching them onto the main-stage of the Australian music industry.

Key performances at South By South West, Austin, Texas; International Folk Alliance, San Diego and Memphis and Canadian Music Week, Toronto; 50 000 CD’s sold independently, 8 releases later has cemented women in docs’ reputation as as one of Australia’s most enduring independent acts.

 “lush melodies and captivating lyrics… a collection of new and original material as fresh as a temperate morning breeze… harmonies are note-perfect, the melodies invigorating… [the songs] are infused with a literary sensibility.
