Summer line ups

Friday 2 February: Dan Parsons, Slim Dime

As a singer/songwriter, Parsons conjures up the essence of Indie folk rock and classic Americana influences, exploring the triumphs and anxieties of the human experience for the iPhone generation. His rich baritone voice and deft guitar style never fails to enthral audiences of all ages and his ability to connect as performer has never been more apparent.

Recording his eagerly anticipated follow up to ‘Valleywood’ (Nominated for Best Folk/Roots Album, The Age Music Victoria Awards 2015) live and straight to tape in 3 days, Dan Parsons’ new album is scheduled for release in 2018. The first single, Here Goes Nothin’  (which hit #1 on the AMRAP Regional Chart) was described as “a modern slice of old-school country funk” (Henry Wagons, Double J). 

With this new collection of songs, Parsons’ sound rides through canyons, across silver oceans and launches into the interstellar…

 Friday 5 January: Raised By Eagles, changoTree 

Raised By Eagles continually raw and captivating performances have cemented the Melbourne band’s reputation as one of Australia’s most sought after independent acts. They released their widely acclaimed second album LP Diamonds In the Bloodstream in May 2015 which bagged a slew of award nominations and went on to win ‘Best Country Album‘ and ‘Best Emerging Artist’ at the Age Music Victoria Awards. It also scored them an invitation from the prestigious Americana Music Festival in Nashville Tennessee, where they delivered a stellar run of international shows.

After a big year on the Australian festival circuit which included Port Fairy Folk Festival, Bigsound, Bello Winter Music Festival and Dashville Skyline the band released their third album, ‘I Must Be Somewhere’, which has already scored four stars in Rolling Stone Australia and recently won best Country album in this year’s Age Music Victoria Awards.

Support will be by local roots band changoTree.

 

 


 

Friday 1 December: Henry Wagons, Kerryn Fields

Henry Wagons is a true renaissance man, with a unique swagger reminiscent of a day when front men gave back bucket loads of charm and were shrouded in enigmatic mystery. Unanimously lauded as one of one of Australia’s great entertainers, a Henry Wagons show is a true sight to behold.

Drawing on a broad-ranging swag of influences, Henry’s show is a high sensation roller coaster ride that ranges from the bluster of sweaty jumpsuit era Elvis, to the somber, drunken malaise of Lee Hazlewood. He can touch on the tenderness of a recently heart-broken Roy Orbison while simultaneously embracing the menace of Nick Cave.

“a shrewd showman and an equally savvy songwriter and singer… Wagons makes sly rock ‘n’ roll that both intellectuals and pop fans can appreciate”  Nashville Cream

“Henry Wagons comes across like Nick Cave singing the Johnny Cash songbook”  Timeout NYC

Support will be by New Zealand singer-songwriter Kerryn Fields.
