Music. An event filled with mystery, Sounds Around Town will take you on an adventure for the senses.

As part of Art About Town month, a walking tour through Smithton will arrive at six unique locations with six surprise artists.

Circular Head Council youth and community officer Jodie Saville said each short concert will have something different to entertain everyone.

“The idea is to bring different music or sounds to people but in a familiar environment,” she said.

While for the most part the artists and locations remain unknown until the night, Circular Head Council has announced one artist.

A cappella artist Hairyman is looking forward to discovering his performance space.

“I have no idea where I’ll be performing and that is precisely what attracted me to it,” says Hairyman. “The mystery of it.”

Describing himself as a singing poet or a balladeer, he often finds inspiration from the past.

“I love history so I write about convicts, shipwrecks, mining and all sorts of things from an earlier age.

“I like writing about the stories I’ve read, putting it into song is my way of getting that history out there.”

A secluded type, Hairyman says he feels most confident in natural settings.

“For me, different venues allow me to express myself in voice.

“My biggest fear is [being restricted by] a small venue, I have a very large voice.

“I like alternative venues, I don’t mind singing beneath the stars in the open air or anywhere that allows a change of scenery.”

Sounds Around Town will start at Time Out on Emmett, 61 Emmett Street, Smithton on Friday September 21 at 5.30pm, starting with music by Dudley and Cho. Cost is $12, this includes nibbles.
