Sappho Books, Cafe & Bar

We are one of Sydney's favourite general second-hand Bookstores. Walk through to our beautiful courtyard Cafe that transforms into a tapas Bar at night. We are also now home to Da Capo Music Bookshop, the only dedicated second-hand sheet music store in Australia. We buy and sell used books, sheet music and records, host live music and events and are available for venue hire.

Jo has performed in a diverse array of musical acts in his career of over a decade, from swing and rock, to musical comedy, and an ABBA-tribute solo banjo show. His current solo project takes folk-tune arrangement to its extremities and beyond in works of captivating originality. Irish, Asian, and Arabic influences find a surprising affinity with contemporary avant-garde aesthetics and found-sound composition in his performances for guitar and sound-objects. Jo is currently releasing an album, Sillage (a French term for ‘wake’ or ‘trail’, which is used by perfumers to describe the extent to which a scent lingers in the air), in May 2015 on Psychopyjama Records, as well as making his academic career in music philosophy.
