THOMSONS CD LAUNCH

 

The Thomsons, with their very special guest, local music legend Robbie Long, will be launching their new album, ‘Chameleon’ in a one night show.

‘The Thomsons’ are a contemporary folk / roots acoustic based duo that specialise in original music that tells a story. Their music is based on a personal, oblique perspective of the beautiful world in which we live. Through the music of ‘The Thomsons’ be prepared to dust off your passport, add a few obscure visas, and meet a cast of new ‘Chameleon-like’ characters, including a Central Asian small time drug mule, an aspirational Bougainvillean boy in a maelstrom of anarchy, and reflect on the rhetoric of a post-apocalyptic world. Hang out in a trendy Malaccan café with some fellow life travellers, empathise with the forlorn ‘Queen of the Namoi’, ‘and groove with aspiring Indonesian rockers in Lombok.

There will be a prize for the best dressed ‘Chameleon’ in the audience …

THE ESCALATORS

 online tickets available HERE

With more grooves than a record store, The Escalators tip their fedoras to the sophistication of Swing, the funk of New Orleans, & the rhythmic pulse of Jamaica. The Escalators ‘M.O’ is to cross-pollinate great jazz standards with groove-driven genres, and to graft original compositions onto their swing, soul & reggae roots. After hundreds of shows together, this band can hold listeners spell-bound in a ‘hear-a-pin-drop’ house concert, or have the floorboards of a School of Arts Hall heaving under the weight of unhinged dancing. The gorgeous tone of Jenny Blunden's voice embraces you & steals your heart while Lachlan Mackenzie’s guitar weaves with pick-pocket grace through a rhythmic framework rich in interplay between Bradley Parson's upright bass & the drum kit captained by Hayden Moore.

ANDREW CLERMONT with PAUL WOOKEY & MONTZ MATUMOTO

Clermont first played with Paul in about 1982. Wookey & Clermont met Montz at Frances Folk Gathering on the SA/VIC border some 15 years ago. We have all become best friends in music and are very keenly looking forward to this special trip.

Introducing a hot and very unique trio of song harmony and musical journey with a strong but worldly bluegrass taste.

Montz Matsumoto http://montzbanjo.com/
From Kyoto, Japan, Montz met Andrew at the Frances Folk Gathering nearly 20 years back and became the most seen performer at Andrew Clermont's Supper Club. He's very pleased to introduce the magnetic Banjo whiz/ entertainer/ world traveled Matsumoto to the hallowed Rutherglen extended community. He has also been blitzing with The Pigs from Gympie to the Black Stump, and variously with The Borderers and festivals with Clermont.
Most people would probably associate the banjo with Appalachian hillbilly music and the film ‘Deliverance,’ however the charismatic Matsumoto’s eclectic brand of music is testament to the adaptability of the instrument to a wide variety of musical styles, including Japanese, Indian, Celtic, Reggae and of course the traditional Bluegrass as well. He cites Doc Watson, Ry Cooder, David Grisman, Tony Trischka as influences with Woody Guthrie strong on his latest CD. Wit and humour shine throughout his performance , honed from touring the world.
Plus!!

Paul Wookey www.paulwookey.com.au
..is a gifted musician and possessor of one of the most acknowledged and diverse talents to have emerged in this country over the last 2 decades.

During this time Paul has shared the stage with & won accolades from a great many performers, including American Blues great John Hammond and Jimmy Witherspoon,( for whom he played guitar replacing Robin Ford), and Vince Gill, the No. 1 country singer in the U.S.

Although reasonably adept at an old country ballad, (Paul was a Gold Guitar winner at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 1981!) his first love is the blues and old 50’s &60’s rock&roll.

Paul has toured with Mick Jagger, Joe Satriani, Jimmy Witherspoon, John Hammond, Charlie Musselwhite, Brownie McGee, Vince Gill, Jessie Winchester, Mark O’Conner, Dan Crary, Byron Berline, Albert Lee, Mickey Newbury, Ralph McTell… and the list goes on


And chameleon Andrew Clermont, a nutso Fiddler, Mandolinist & 3 time Bluegrass Guitar Champ to boot - 30 years touring - from Tom T Hall, Dya Singh, BluGuru to Totally Gourdgeous, All Corners Covered and a Golden Fiddle Award director!
Plus 20 years of the epic Supper Club at Tamworth CM & Woodford, National & WA's Fairbridge Folk Festivals!

ANDREW CLERMONT & RACHEL JOHNSTON

Andrew Clermont is touring with formidable and feisty cellist Rachel Johnston
(formerly many years of the Australian String Quartet (!) and toured with Missy Higgins etc)
with a selection from the tips of Scandinavia through UK to inner Outback & Oldtime.
Tantalising and soaring are the works. Curious & twisted are the stories and songs.
Clermont is with new sensuous double size Mick Moffat F5 Mandola along side the Gilchrist F5 Mandolin and Roger Buckmaster Fiddle,
beside Rachel's Luis & Clark near glowing Cello,
plus Clermont's 3 time Bluegrass Guitar Champ maneuvers and haunting cast Didgeridoo. A feast to behold.
