"The Navy Club was so much fun last year, it will be wonderful to go back, a great room." - Deborah Conway

With a musical career spanning over 25 years, multiple gold records, a string of hits and an Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Music Award for ‘Best Female Artist’, Deborah Conway needs little introduction.

Seeking a guitarist for her first ever solo album String of Pearls, Conway met and fell in love with Willy Zygier. This was the start of a highly successful song-writing and personal collaboration for Conway and Zygier, which has (so far) resulted in nine records, three children and been compared to greats like Dylan and Cohen.

Tracks spanning 11 records will be bought to life, from String of Pearls to their acclaimed latest release Everybody’s Begging, Conway, Zygier & The Beggars Go West will be an evening to remember.

Conway & Zygier will be accompanied by a full band of Australia’s finest musicians, including Niko Schauble, Clio Renner (RocKwiz) & Jonathon Zion, in this one off spectacular evening in Fremantle.

Seating is unreserved. First in, best dressed, plus bar stools, standing & dancing room for everyone else.
