Australia, and Sydney in particular, has no shortage of talented, award-winning and world-renowned musicians. But thanks to Live at Yours, you can now see them perform in the most unlikely of places.
These concerts, though, are more than just musicians on stage playing their instruments—they’re a chance to experience music like it used to be played in the salons of old where friends got together and had a fabulous time.
Take a look below at the upcoming performances scheduled at Mecca Coffee, as well as The Great Synagogue and the Independent Theatre for intimate and unique performances throughout the rest of 2022.
Don’t be fooled by the same musicians playing at both Mecca Coffee and the Independent Theatre on the same day as the setting of each is wildly different and is an altogether different experience for both musicians and audiences.
