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.

Singer Songwriter Erin Badman blends her love of jazz and folk music to create her own unique sound. Her songs have been described as both 'adventurous and accessible’ as she draws her listeners in using interesting rhythmic concepts and colourful harmony, without making you think twice about it. Erin embodies the spirit of her generation using popular song form and paints a familiar sound to hold onto with her short and sweet approach to songwriting. Her voice has an etherial quality that bends without breaking and weaves without tangling beautiful storytelling and wordless melodies. With mostly acoustic and rhythmically entrancing hybrid of jazz and folk, Erin's hushed yet sultry vocals have her listeners mesmerised from the very first note.
