Details:
Armed only with their voices, The Spooky Men's Chorale commentates on the absurdity and grandeur of the modern male. Sometimes mighty, sometimes foolish, sometimes blissfully tender-hearted, the Spooky Men strike a deeply human chord.

Formed in the Blue Mountains of NSW in 2001 by Christchurch-born now Mountains'-based spookmeister Stephen Taberner, the Spooky Men soon attracted attention with a judicious combination of Georgian table songs, pindrop beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers, and immaculate man anthems like “Don’t Stand Between a Man and his Tool”, and “We Are Not a Men’s Group” - all of which amounted to a manifesto for the new breed of man: happily suspended between thug and wimp.

Since their debut at the National Folk Festival in Canberra in 2004, they’ve made nearly 100 appearances including WOMAD, Woodford, Port Fairy, Blue Mountain and Sydney festivals, plus tours to the UK and Europe and multiple ABC-TV appearances.

The Spooky Men have also recorded seven CDs: Tooled Up (2004), Stop Scratching It (2007), Deep (2009), Big (2011),
The Spooky Man in History (2013), Warm (2015) and their latest, which they’ll ransack for good songs at the concert.
Of Welcome to the Second Half (2019) they say the album will explore some deeper things but also deliver a good deal of silliness - which can never be fully eradicated. “You may find the beauty and thoughtfulness balanced out by the fact it’s being sung by a bunch of idiots. Nice idiots.”
