By Joanna Weinberg.

Cabaret artist , musical writer and songwriter Joanna Weinberg recently launched the album for this delightful work dedicated to the love of handbags.  Now hear it in the flesh!

Drummer Nicola Ossher, trumpeter Ellen Kirkwood and cellist Kate Adams are the outstanding musical and vocal accompanists.

‘A skilled and powerful performer able to build a narrative like a great novel' Melbourne Cabaret Festival

“This is a show worth seeing, as indeed is anything presented by Joanna Weinberg. It’s uplifting, musically funky and totally enjoyable. As they say in their program, “The show doesn’t only appeal to women – men have their baggage too”….The show, with its laid back and cool stagecraft and humorous cynicism, is reminiscent of Berlin’s cabarets of the 1920s and Weinberg’s lyrical prowess is as clever as Noel Coward’s.”

Bronwyn Fullerton- Sydney Arts Guide 2016

“… She concocts hilarious songs like Bag Porn, Old Bag, and the sorrowful Laundry Bag to extend the metaphor of Pandora that calls forth a new emancipator imagery around the handbag that legitimizes female obsession.When I was lucky enough to attend this clever show, I took my sig other as my plus one, and he had a marvelous time. … Joanna Weinberg has nailed her subject matter. “
