Sunday Concerts at Cais do Carvão

Due to last weeks concert cancellations due to bad weather this Sunday, the 29th of September there will be several musical performances held at Cais do Carvão, Funchal.

Sunday’s entertainment programme kicks off at 18:30, with a performance by Tiago Sena Silva, who will present acoustic versions of some of the songs that have influenced him. This includes Portuguese light music, timeless soul classics and contemporary pop music. He will be accompanied by Vítor Abreu (guitar and vocals), Gonçalo Faria de Sousa (bass) and Bernardo Rodrigues (percussion).

At 20:00 Akoustic Junkies take to the stage playing a series of pop and rock numbers which include original songs and covers.  The group formed 2012, and  the original scores are composed by Duarte Ferreira (voice), Hugo Vieira (acoustic guitar), Marco Panama (drums), Pedro Pereira (bass) and Roberto Vasconcelos (acoustic and electric guitar).

In 2013, the band won the first NOS Summer Opening band competition, distinguishing itself for making tributes to grunge queen bands such as Pearl Jam and Nirvana. Already this year, the Akoustic Junkies have released new original songs, which they have been presenting at various public events.

Finally, at 21:00, the event ends with the performance by DUL, whose musical set includes pop, rock, blues and even Portuguese popular music. The band consists of Sandra Branco (vocals, rhythm and melodic guitar), Fábio Gomes (keyboard), Bruno Rodrigues (bass), Fábio Menezes (lead guitar), and José Pereira (drums).

The venue, as usual on show days, will be open to the public from 2 pm and includes a craft fair selling various local handicrafts.   Stalls include work by the Association of Cerebral Palsy of Madeira and local entrepreneurs and artisans, such as Tabaibo and Mint, Vilhoa Craft Beer, Lulu Brigadeiros Gourmet, The Crazy Wizard and Claudia Teixeira Design.

If you are looking for something a little bit different, then this is the place to go.
