Ayers Rock Resort
Weekend Sundown Sessions 26 Jun to 11 Oct 2014
Ayers Rock Resort is offering yet another reason to escape to the spiritual heart of Australia with a series of Weekend Sundown Sessions every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from 26 June until 11 October 2014, offering free entertainment that will make your weekend even more special.
On Thursday nights, grab a mug of hot chocolate and sit back for a moonlight cinema experience under the sparkling outback night sky. Celebrating some of Australia's most iconic full length movies, such as Australia, Rabbit Proof Fence, The Sapphires and many more.
Friday and Saturday nights feature live music sessions with Warren H Williams, one of the biggest Indigenous identities on the Australian music scene. In a mix of traditional country and a touch of soul, he blends the red dirt of his Central Australian home with the concrete jungle in his celebrated songs.
Weekend Sundown Sessions are free and will be held at the Resort's Amphitheatre, which will be transformed into a cosy place to settle in and relax for the evening.

Live Music with Warren H. Williams
Time: Friday 5pm to 7pm and Saturday 7.30pm to 9.30pm
Warren H Williams, one of Australia's favourite singer/songwriters, has a powerful voice, strong messages, wicked sense of humour and gentle manner. The three-time ARIA nominee, Golden Guitar winner and Deadlys Award winner has been a professional musician for the past 20 years but says music has been in his blood since he was born in Central Australia.
Warren has been recognised with Australia's highest peer-assessed award, the Red Ochre by the Australia Council. His first language album, Winanjjara (The Song Peoples Sessions) was an ARIA finalist in 2012; he's won a National Indigenous Music Award, Golden Guitar and Deadlys Award.
Warren shot to fame when he paired with John Williamson to sing Raining on the Rock, which became an anthem for reconciliation and he toured around the world with John for 15 years. He has released nine albums and played with the likes of the late Dr Jimmy Little, Greg Champion, Troy Cassar-Daley, Johnny Chester, Pixie Jenkins and Ted Egan.
