Ballarat’s final Backyard Tasters event for 2019 returns to Alfred Deakin Place this Friday from 5.30pm.

Bar Choir

Bar Choir are all about teaching a popular song in harmony to people who might have otherwise thought singing wasn’t their ‘thing’ or strength. Bar Choir is not about performance, it’s about singing for the soul. It is an ephemeral experience for all.

Floc is a young person speaking on behalf of her generation through rap, soulful vocals and beats.
Inspired by taboos, her lyrics always carry a message. Chill pop music shapes her sound providing a performance for all ages to enjoy
