Watch out! Here they come! The musical sisters from Esk are turning the hubcaps on the highway and bringing a delightful mix of nutty stories and songs to town! Venturing out from the secret laden walls of their secluded home, this strange and endearing trio is an experience not to be missed.
Hot out of the oven, with stories of their misfit adventures paired with famous songs gleaned from their old wireless at home, these three eccentric sisters are set to serve up a real treat. From Abba to Daft Punk, Sia to Steppenwolf, Pink to Pink Floyd, get ready to hear well-known tunes like you’ve never heard them before! With their peculiar spin on popular songs played on an eclectic mix of instruments including musical saw, tuba, old reed keyboard, and kitchen pots, these oddball Queensland Sisters will leave you wanting more.

Join a powerhouse group set to navigate the depths of the ocean and explore the celestial realm through the work of American composer George Crumb.
Lauded by David Bowie, and only recently departed this world, George Crumb was in the eyes of his contemporaries a visionary who reinvented the musical wheel. A maverick among revolutionaries, Crumb’s music evokes a sense of awe, wonder and enigmatic beauty in the way it channels a vast array of influences from the spatial concept of stars and heavens, to the call of humpback whales.
This twilight affair of expression at the limits channels cabaret, recital and whimsy in breathtaking fashion, showcasing consummate musicianship, thrilling audacity and imagination.
If Bach, Debussy, Bartok, jazz, the mythical, primordial or comedy are your bag, this is your night under the stars.

The worlds of classical music, performance art and comedy collide showcasing Sonya and Christine’s consummate musicianship, thrilling audacity and imagination.
Christine Johnston as Madame Lark joins piano siren Sonya Lifschitz to unleash their dueling scores. Part cabaret, part recital, this delightfully surreal performance places legendary composer George Crumb’s zodiac-inspired fantasy pieces amidst the sounds of the Antipodes. As Sonya conjures up mythical, primordial sounds from inside the piano, Madame Lark takes to her musical saw, vocals and an overhead projector. Together they bring George Crumb’s masterwork for piano to life in an intriguingly whimsical and altogether unexpected way.

So sad about the update from BLEACH 2021 that they have had to cancel the festival due to the recent COVID-19 developments across SE QLD. Thinking of and thanking the amazing Rosie Dennis and all the team at Bleach who have been brilliant, and all the fantastic artists, crew, production and supporting community… Thank you Alycia Warner for looking after us, and thanks also to my beloved co-creators Peter Nelson and Selene Cochrane. Looking forward to future BLEACH.
Four different sheds and four different composer/musician performances... and an audience road trip visiting each shed performance through the Gold Coast hinterland. BLEACH FESTIVAL's event - Acoustic Life of Sheds.
