Mothers’ Day is always special at The Byron at Byron and this year is no exception.
The resort has enlisted renowned alt-folk duo Dane and Belinda Tucquet of Bluebird Music to delight and entertain with their original songs and unique interpretations of covers on guitar, vocals, piano and cello.
Award winning singer songwriter Dane Tucquet received critical acclaim and an Australian Music Prize nomination for his debut album Bury Me in my Headphones. Celebrated for his hypnotic live performances and idiosyncratic vocal range, Tucquet’s originality and compelling presence has seen him tour with the likes of Martha Wainwright, Clare Bowditch and Joan As Policewoman.
In addition to his own headline tours he has performed at St Jerome’s Laneway, Queenscliff and Great Escape Festivals. He also collaborated on the soundtrack to award-winning filmmaker Mick Water’s documentary Little Black Wheels. Often described as a modern day Tom Waits, Dane is an exponent of noir-folk.
Belinda Tucquet’s raw musicality is evident through her dual professions of practicing music therapist in Brisbane and multi-instrumentalist, accompanist, and performer. She is a fan of the Bach cello suites and Prince in equal measure.
“In my work I have met and been inspired by so many amazing women who literally go to the ends of the earth for their kids” said Belinda Tucquet. “I’m looking to being a part of Mothers’ Day at The Byron at Byron and love the idea of one day taking off on the crazy, beautiful motherhood journey myself!”
The Byron at Byron’s Head Chef Gavin Hughes has created a special menu for the day which offers a choice of four entrées and four main courses. “There are some mothers’ favourites including Tartlet of Zest spiced pumpkin with silverbeet, fetta and candied walnuts, Grass fed eye fillet with parmesan mash, roasted beetroots and grated horseradish and Freckle’s fish of the day with pea risotto, zucchini flower, smoked tomatoes and pea tendrils” said the father of two.
Sunday 12th May, 12:30pm. $69 per person for two courses, signature cocktail and a rose for mum and entertainment by Bluebird Music. Children aged twelve and under may dine from the childrens’ menu.
