Ipswich and Beaudesert to get Piece of Cake from Kransky Sisters
ESK'S own kooky Kransky Sisters have won awards for their offbeat musical shows in towns as far away as Edinburgh.
Mourne, Eve and Dawn Kransky will perform on home turf this week, presenting their Piece of Cake show in Ipswich tonight and in Beaudesert on Saturday.
The sisters make their music with traditional and found instruments including a kitchen pot, toilet brush, keyboard, musical saw, tuba, guitar and tambourines.
The oddball trio is known around Australia for their unusual arrangements of popular song, including the Talking Head's Psycho Killer, Abba songs and even AC/DC.
Ipswich City Council Arts, Community and Cultural Services Committee chairman Charlie Pisasale welcomed the Kransky Sisters to town.
"Venturing out from the intensely private world of their family home, the sisters will be bringing stories and homespun renditions of the popular songs they've heard on their wireless," Cr Pisasale said.
"A combination of the Sisters' sheltered views of the world seen through their droll comic dialogue, combined with their alluring musical sound makes a night out with these Queensland sisters an unforgettable experience. Don't miss this multi-award winning trio as they bring you their darkly funny brand of tune ..."
Catch the Kransky Sisters from 7.30 tonight at the Ipswich Civic Centre, or at the Beaudesert Cultural Centre, 382 Brisbane St, from 7.30 Saturday night.
