      The London Klezmer Quartet

      The London Klezmer Quartet takes you on a musical odyssey with the whirling, irresistible energy of klezmer at its most beguiling and seductive. The subtleties of the original tradition combined with a kick-the-chairs-over ability to party played on clarinet, fiddle, accordion and double bass. Celebration and soul in a musical fusion that sparkles with life. “The real deal, to these ears” (Doug Spencer, ABC RN).

      Kim Richey and Sarah Humphreys

      Two critically acclaimed female singer-songwriters from opposite sides of the world will join forces in early 2015 to play a handful of one-off, intimate shows.

      Two-time Grammy nominated Kim Richey is a Nashville based storyteller who tugs at the heartstrings – with a voice so pure, arresting and honest, it literally aches with life’s truths. Audiences will be in for a treat when she is joined on a small run of shows by local songstress Sarah Humphreys.

      Over the past two decades Kim has released six critically acclaimed albums, been listed in the Top 10 Albums of 1999 in Time Magazine for her album Glimmer, plus received 4-stars in Rolling Stone and named ‘Alt- Country Album Of The Year’ in People Magazine for her album Rise. Her voice can be heard on “Come Pick Me Up” from Ryan Adams debut album Heartbreaker and her songs have been recorded by the likes of Trisha Yearwood and James Morrison. She has even appeared on a William Shatner record produced by Ben Folds.

      Most recently, a sublime array of guests feature on Kim’s 2013 release, Thorn In My Heart, including Jason Isbell, Wilco’s Pat Sansone, My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel, Will Kimbrough and, returning the harmony-singing favour, Trisha Yearwood.
      An Ohio native, Kim now resides in Nashville. Her songs have been featured in film and TV and she continues to travel the world – never being afraid to go where the inspiration is.

      Nick kingswell + alex gibson

      Born in Phillip Island on the south coast of Victoria, Nick moved to Sydney at 18 to chase a career as a musician. This move earned him great success in many forms; a stint as a country musician – winning The Telstra Road to Tamworth in 2006 and recording a single for SONY/BMG. Working as a guitarist for the likes of Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy and The McClymonts for 5 years, as well as appearing on The Voice in 2013.

      But none of these ventures seemed to click for Kingswell. Country music never quite suited him, playing other people’s music wasn’t what he’d set out to do, and one whiff of the orchestrated pandemonium of pop fame was enough to turn him off that venture completely.

      Soon after his TV appearance, Kingswell finally had his moment of clarity: record his own album, sell his house & car, and buy a one way ticket to London. A decision that only time dictates whether it was ingenious or insanity. Once an established Sydney musician, now a musical vagabond.

      With a guitar and copies of his new album in tow, Kingswell set about busking on the streets of London – a new creative vault to break into, albeit a risky undertaking & a far cry from the comfortable living he had carved out for himself in Sydney. Surely playing on a pier in Brighton couldn’t compare to playing festivals with Guy Sebastian?

      As well as earning some residencies in London, the busking tour continued through Europe as Kingswell found a love for the art. He experienced the highs & lows of street performance in Germany – on one occasion he was spotted and paid to play at an after wedding barbeque, and on another he was threatened with a 2000 euro fine and confiscation of his guitar by German law enforcements. Everyone’s a critic.

      Now, Kingswell is bringing his album home for a 16 date tour along the east coast of Australia. Touring throughout February and March, Nick is living the life of a reborn musician – sleeping amongst his gear in the back of a van, when once he lived a life of luxury. A coming together of professionally proven melodic guitar and soulful vocals, the ‘Over Easy’ album tour is a return to the sounds of Kingswell’s coastal upbringing, and the next big leap towards a career forged in his own style.

      dustin Thomas

      Big hair and big smiles. Pain, praise and prose. Rare is it for a solo performer to gain such instant notoriety, capturing the attention of thousands across the globe.

      Enter Dustin Thomas, singer/songwriter/author/activist. In just two years, this energetic performer’s storytelling prose has captivated audiences at premier festivals and venues from New York to Australia, Hawai’i to Bali, with his soulful depth through reggae/rock, beatbox- folk tunes. Thomas’ music makes such an impact on all those who meet him, that he has already performed with some of the world’s biggest names in the industry, including Xavier Rudd (Australia), Matisyahu (USA), Keller Williams (USA), The Dirty Heads (USA), Trevor Hall (USA), Beats Antique (CA, USA) and Nahko and Medicine For The People (USA). Combining meditations on social-justice and contemporary spirituality with hymns both beautiful and striking, Thomas invites you to join him on a universal quest for truth – asking honest questions of love, loss, worship and war, through songs that channel joy, bravery and grace.

      Tracey Barnett – Blooming Tour

      West Australian solo dynamo Tracey Barnett is as wild and unpredictable as Mother Nature. Armed with stomp box, acoustic guitars, harmonica and her incredible vocal range, Tracey takes to the stage with unstoppable energy and a smile that lights up the world. Her unique blend of blues, roots and country acoustic rock is best compared with idols such as John Butler and Xavier Rudd.

      Her career began back in 2008 busking on the streets of her hometown at the Blues at Bridgetown Festival where she was spotted by a touring musician whom asked Tracey to open for a few of his shows throughout the South West. Within a few months she was performing her own shows through out the area.

      This is Tracey’s first tour outside WA, and with the response she has had in her home state, she is sure to be a hit. Don’t miss and opportunity to catch Tracey Barnett in her element …… live!!

      The Beez

      Original Songs, stories, short films and slides from the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond, with native Berliner Deta Rayner (accordion/voice) and Australian expat and Berlin resident since 1988 Rob Rayner (guitar/voice). From Balkan to Bluegrass, Polka to Punk and Klezmer to Cabaret, this is the unadulterated truth about the dramatic post-Wall banana shortage, East German Country and Western harmonica production and Stasi-assisted sound checks, all from a uniquely German/Australian perspective.


      Cabaret sensibilities and trademark soaring harmonies inform Rob and Deta´s performance in a funny and moving account from two musicians unwittingly caught up in one of the most significant events of the 20th century.


      Following a successful Australian tour in 2013 (generously supported by the Goethe Institute), this truly unique show is currently being performed in Germany to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

      Saturday 11th April


      For the past couple of years, Central Coast folk troubadours Winterbourne (aka James Draper and Jordan Brady) have captivated audiences busking their way up and down Australia’s East Coast.

      Meeting at high school, the duo had a common interest in music, growing up on a healthy dose of The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, ACDC, Stereophonics and Crosby, Stills & Nash. It was these formative years that created an interest in following a music path that would later become the current formation.

      Post high school years, they adapted a disciplined Saturday morning routine; waking up at 4am and driving to Sydney, then waiting nine hours to eventually busk the main spot in Pitt Street Mall. A Persian mat, a milk crate to stand on and the juggling of 3-4 instruments at a time drew some big crowds and helped the boys acquire a strong following on the streets, selling out of EPs and consistently wowing audiences with their energetic performances.

      Over this period, original songs were penned and the Winterbourne’s sound was developed for the eventual release of their 2014 EP ‘All But The Sun’ which debut at No.9 on the iTunes Album Charts and their respective EP launch at The Lair in Sydney selling out. The pair have then embarked in their first national tour supporting singer/songwriter Patrick James and got a spot as the main support for Little May’ debut EP tour.

      ‘All But The Sun’ is carried by Draper and Brady’s strong vocal melodies and harmonies and unique chemistry as a duo. The EP sees acoustic guitars, weaving with mandolin, lush bass & keys grooves and rhythmic drumming forming a collection of well-crafted songs. The lead track taken from the EP, ‘Cold’, is the band’s first single.

      Suzannah Espie

      Ever seen a Suzannah Espie gig? You’d remember if you had. Because odds are that, from that moment on, you wouldn’t have been satisfied to stop at one. This Melbourne-based singer songwriter has been casting spells over audiences ever since she first took to the stage with her alt-country pop band, GIT, in 1997. A woman of compelling beauty — statuesque, with piercing blue eyes framed by golden curls — she has a voice to match, an intoxicating mix of country, soul, blues and pop. A gentle, sweet trill that can move grown men to tears one moment, or an Aretha-esque hellcat belt that can raise the roof the next; however she sings it though, it’s still unmistakeably Suzannah Espie

      Most recently, Espie earned one of the biggest accolades of her career when the Port Fairy Folk Festival named her Port Fairy Maton Artist of the Year. Dont miss Suzannah Espie and guitarist Sean MacMahon at 5 Church St
