The dynamos of Babushka are your new favourite night out. Slinging musical innovations, quirky comedy and unapologetic sass, these chanteuses are a whole lot of Tina Fey meets Meow Meow with a pinch of Broad City and a dash of Tripod.
Babushka are three drastically different divas that are flirtatious, cheeky and boast a set of unmatchable pipes. Their unique arrangements, musical sketches and mash-ups have garnered acclaim from classical music nerds and indie rock buffs alike. The ladies of Babushka will lambast their audience with raunchy wit, sly humour and fabulous vocals leaving everyone wanting more.
Since premiering their wares at Queensland’s own Woodford Folk Festival, Babushka has performed at Brisbane Festival, Queensland Cabaret Festival, Wonderland Festival, Brisbane Cabaret Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Anywhere Festival, presented two season at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts and toured regional Queensland.
When not performing as part of their beloved Babushka, Alicia Cush, Bethan Ellsmore and Judy Hainsworth are in-demand professional performers in their own right. As individuals, the girls have performed with Opera Queensland, OzOpera, Sydney Theatre Company, La Boite Theatre Company, shake & stir theatre co, Women in Voice, Oscar Theatre Company, The Qld Conservatorium Opera Department, Operacus and The National Youth Choir of Australia.
