6:45pm: Bow and Arrow
Bow and Arrow simply means girl and boy. An eccentric husband and wife duo that live in a big love bubble in the Blue Mountains. Bow (Mindy Jane) met Arrow (Mitchell Kwanten) at The Sydney Conservatorium of Music and they have been partners in crime ever since. They love to play live and present a fun, energetic and entertaining selection of original music. “We made a vow to always present a string live show that’s entertaining, energetic and fun. With string experimental elements we aim to deliver something left of centre and slightly theatrical… where we can escape to anther world together.” Bow and Arrow
