Upcoming Shows & Events
Andrea Kirwin (Aus/Fiji) and Chris Cobb (PNG) are performing a double headline show at Maleny Lane, 38 Maple St, Maleny on Friday 24 November. Doors will open at 6.30pm for 7pm show and tickets are $15 entry for what will be a fantastic night of live music with an island theme.
Chris Cobb is a relatively new face on the Sunshine Coast music scene but he has performed in front of thousands and has amassed an impressive social media following. Having performed at a few Maleny Front up Chalkboard open mics and thoroughly entertaining the audience with his songs, Chris' beautiful smooth vocals and stories from performing for over a decade in music mostly in PNG and other overseas destinations have surely won him a new following in his new home away from home. Co-headlining the show will be much loved local Australian/Fijian artist Andrea Kirwin who has been touring across QLD and NSW the past 3 months. She will be performing songs from her catalogue of 5 albums that have an island theme to the Maleny Lane stage and will include stories from her childhood spending time growing up in her mother's island of Maluku. For those that may not have seen Andrea perform before, she has been liked to Norah Jones and Tracy Chapman and she has become renowned for her smooth, soulful, easy listening style with jazz influences which can be heard on her latest album, Bloom.

Australian/Fijian singer-songwriter Andrea Kirwin and her wife Claire Evelynn have been travelling and performing at Festivals together since they met in 2008 as part of Andrea's band. However, their duo show with Claire performing on Celtic Harp began with a Woodford Folk Festival Small Halls tour in 2021. The combination of Celtic Harp along with Andrea's soulful heartfelt original songs which she performs on vocals, guitar, harmonica, cigar box guitar and stomp has been described by many as a spell binding combination. Since their inaugural tour across 20 small halls in QLD in 2021, the musical couple have performed up and down the East coast in 2022 and also at Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival in New Zealand and Maleny Music Festival in 2023. Andrea's originals are beautifully crafted songs about her real life experiences including stories from her multicultural upbringing in Townsville as well as love songs written for Claire. It is not often that the artist and muse perform together on stage and the result is simply divine. Claire's delicate harp playing dances around Andrea's rhythm guitar and together they create a harmony and ambience that transports listeners to a place where music is truly a balm for the soul.
