The Troubadour Folk Club 
at Everglades Country Club, Woy Woy 29 May 2021

The Wild Women were a hoot from the start. But cleverly, as we were lulled into the comfort of laughter and shared enjoyment, they began to get deeper and deeper in their reflection on what it means to be treated as a older woman, and how to respond to it. Cleverly, their message was about older blokes as well. They played some quite demanding instrumentals which I think went well beyond folk music. I thought of them as mini symphonic sketches, on the ukuleles. The lasting memories I have is of the joy they have and their rebellious embrace of gender and ageing. These are two women who are determined make the world a better place, one witty line and clever key change at a time.

Brisbane workshops and performances May 2021

The weekend was a wonderful experience. If you ever get the chance, and you are looking for something extra, I recommend you go to a concert or workshop by the Wild Women of Anywhere Beach.


This review is biased because I am an unabashed fan of the Wild Women of Anywhere Beach. Cathy Welsford and Angie Smith are the wild women. They hale from Valla Beach near Bellingen in NSW (south of Coffs Harbour).

I attended one of their workshops in Blaxland (at the foot of the Blue Mountains) in 2019. I was immediately won over by their ukulele competency, their preparation work, and their friendly, happy style. They have a gift for teaching. Geoff Dancer June 2021
