      I Sognaturi

      I Sognaturi have just completed a 36 concert tour across European in 2014, playing in Italy, Croatia, Austria and Hungary.

      They will be touring in Australia in January and February in 2015, starting at the famous Cygnet Folk Festival in Tasmania.

      A delightfully sumptuous collaboration between Italian singer, accordionist, folklorist and teacher, Veronica Canale, and Australian composer, performer , multi-instrumentalist Trevor Brown. Veronica specializes in collecting and performing the exquisitely quirky music of her home city, Venice , is also a virtuosic accordionist, researcher of Italian traditional songs and lullabies.

      She has also performed and collaborated with many international circus and theatre acts, as well as creating work for the Venice Biennale.

      Trevor Brown (Waiting for Guinness, Gypsy Dub Sound System) is a virtuosic multi-instrumentalist and is a prolific composer and masterful improviser, lending his talents to an array of diverse projects around the country and the World, from circuses to symphonies , from Darwin to Dakar. His ability to blend classical /folk /electronic to experimental compliments the sometimes serene, strident and humorous music of Veronica.

      Veronica and Trevor shared a warehouse in in the grotty streets of Chippendale in Sydney 10 years ago and started playing together then, and they’ve furthered the project when Trevor has traveled to Italy to play with her in some quintessentially crazy Italian festivals, in Venice, Lido and Abruzzo in 2008, 2010, 2013 and 2014, with further plans for 2015 in Australia and another European summer.

      Green Mohair Suits

      Despite sporadic activity in recent years, Sydney’s Green Mohair Suits are ramping it up. The band has a full album release slated for September 2014 and has just released Aubergine, its second EP this year.

      Brian Campeau and his compatriots Richard Cuthbert, Jason Mannell, and Ben Romalis – a quartet with strong four-part harmonies and love of shenanigans have sidelined the side project tag, and now appear to be allowing Green Mohair Suits to stride ahead as their frontrunner musical outlet.

      Their love of Gram Parsons still close to their flannelette-covered hearts (they started playing in the guise of a Parsons tribute outfit), the band members are the first to admit that the sweeping, expansive clatter and twang they’re pedaling these days pushes their country, folk and bluegrass roots sound.

      Thursday 12th February

      Beaten Bodies

      Beaten Bodies grew out of Wollongong, NSW in 2012 via friends of friends and a passion for early soul and Motown. The name was coined from Beat + Bodies, the essential elements in the music they wanted to make. After two well received EPs, both here in Australia and abroad, countless shows all over the country, lineup changes, and a desire to evolve and hone a sound that now sits somewhere close to nusoul, Beaten Bodies have our attention going into 2015. Expect organic, lush backdrops, wiggly basslines, futuristic beats and the beautiful voice and words of Marli Wilde.

      Den Hanrahan

      Den Hanrahan is a singer/songwriter, storyteller, guitar, banjo and harp player, stomp-box stomper, front bar larrikin and outback romper. His raucous ballads collide all over the history of a misspent youth in a country with enough bushrangin’, pub-brawlin’, truck-drivin’, gold-pannin’, wombat-neckin’, mutton-stealin’ lore to fill a thousand more.

      He plays like he drives, fast and ferocious, burning out motors and his good wife’s patience as he treks the country, rocking roadhouses, festivals and pubs. Bold and bodacious, his shows can be as alarmingly intimate as they are good old-fashioned fun.

      Mr Cassidy w Andrew Morris

      For Danni Carr and Emilie Owen, the little band they started while their husbands were out surfing and jamming has become the band their husbands want to play in. When your husbands happen to be Scott Owen (The Living End) and Ash Grunwald, two incredibly successful Australian musos, that’s when the ‘little band’ – Mr Cassidy – becomes more than a way to pass the time, it becomes a serious musical outfit.

      Forming early in 2012, Mr Cassidy’s early sessions as a two piece – Danni’s soaring vocals and guitar, combined with Emilie’s haunting harmonies, mandolin and violin – quickly became a trio when husband Scott jumped in on double bass and vocals, and then a four piece with the addition of Fingers Malone (a producer and collaborator to husband Ash) on drums.

      If you haven’t had the pleasure or opportunity to see the Mr Cassidy magic live yet, you may want to make it your top priority; this ‘little band’ is about to be very, very big.

      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.

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.

      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.
