MONIQUE StCLARE


Monique Clare (The Maes) is joined by American fiddler Joe D’Esposito (The Railsplitters) in a mesmerising collaboration that draws on their diverse influences. Dancing between rhythmic cello lines, powerfully vulnerable vocals and heart-tugging harmonies, Monique Clare is an award-winning cellist and singer-songwriter. Since breaking out as a solo artist in 2017, her songwriting has become increasingly daring and potent, with hard-hitting lyrics and an unconventional brand of classical-folk-pop cello. Joe D’Esposito is a multi-genre fiddle player and improviser with infectious charisma. His work with The Railsplitters has seen him play Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and Celtic Connections. This duo brings together a shared classical training, obsession with fiddling traditions and a mutual love of Björk to deliver intricate arrangements of original songs and tunes

Loren Kate

 

https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/loren-kate-royal-exchange-theatre-newcastle-tickets-71241771055


Sharing songs from her upcoming release, Loren Kate is touring the East Coast this Oct/Nov, on her way to perform at the Mullum Music Fest.

An utterly captivating performer. Loren Kate’s angelic voice, evocative guitar playing and delicate storytelling are delivered with rare humour and grace that is both humbling and inspiring.
While a far cry from gospel music, Loren’s music shares that same uplifting spiritualism. It ain't preachy. More so, 'stubbornly positive' - putting one foot in front of the other, keeping her head above water. Loren’s stories organically stem from this place - of endurance; perseverance. But it's not in any way pretentious. In a world where superficial reigns supreme, Loren prescribes returning to our true self. It's simply Loren on a plate.

Sharing songs from her upcoming release, Loren Kate is touring the East Coast this Oct/Nov, on her way to perform at the Mullum Music Festival.

'One of the most emotionally divine singer/songwriters in the universe, she can crack you open and expose your rawness then wrap you back up so you can leave safe and warm. She, Loren Kate, is a special one.'
-Phaedra Watts, Nannup Music Festival Director

MIC CONWAY and ROBBIE LONG

Online tickets available HERE

“Mic Conway with Robbie Long"
In a circus of comedy, music and magic, Mic Conway presents an hilarious array of idiosyncratic songs that will make your jaw drop, toes tap and sides split. Audiences who know this ARIA-award winning entertainer from "Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band" and Circus Oz will be delighted by this incarnation: Mic as storyteller of tall tales and true. He takes the stage with Robbie Long (multi-instrumentalist and Australian Flat Pick Guitar Champion). There's magic, juggling, cavorting and that trademark tongue-in-cheek sense of humour. Stripped back, irreverent, and shameless... it's surreal vaudeville for crooning and swooning.

THE BARLEYSHAKES, with special guests The Kelly Family

 

Brewed in Ireland and distilled in Australia, the Barleyshakes are a Celtic band with world music influences who combine intense energy, beautiful harmony and driving dance rhythms in their live performances. Adored throughout Australia and beyond for their “bent” Irish sound, they are winners of the Queensland Music Award for World Music. Ever since their inception in the 90’s in Dublin, the Barleyshakes have been turning heads. Their mission, to inject new life into Irish music while honouring the tradition past, was to become a life-long adventure for each member. Their live shows have taken them around the globe and they continue to take audiences on a joy filled ride wherever they perform. The band use fiddles, flutes, tine whistle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, vocals, bass, bodhran, and drums to create their truly wonderful Celtic sound. They have shared the stage with Lunasa, Metallica, Kila, Joe Cocker, Sharon Shannon, Altan, and Grada, to name a few. After well over a decade together this ensemble know each other intensely and they communicate freely to create something fresh every time they perform. They release their 8th album entitled “Irishtown” at this year’s festival.

That the Barleyshakes manage to be at the forefront of traditional Irish music in Australia while breathing it new life is remarkable. Intense energy, beautiful harmony, and irresistible dance rhythms are what make them tick. Members contributed to the Lord of the Rings award winning soundtrack, they also won the Queensland Music Award for world music.

This year they release their 8th album “Irishtown”

CARLO AONZO TRIO

After “A Mandolin Journey”, musical tour through the continents, the Carlo Aonzo Trio (Carlo Aonzo on the Italian mandolin, Lorenzo Piccone on the acoustic guitar and Luciano Puppo on the double bass) is back, this time travelling along the Italian tradition to rediscover its peculiar soundtrack. Once again the main character is the mandolin which, in the personal unique modern and eclectic style of Aonzo, makes such repertoire surprisingly catchy and contemporary. From Raffaele Calace to Domenico Modugno, passing through the Italian regions and the best Bel Paese song tradition, "Mandolitaly" breaks apart and casts a new light on the Italian music heritage: from the internationally known "Arrivederci Roma" and "Roma nun fa la stupida stasera" to the great historical fathers of mandolin as Carlo Munier for a taste of classical repertoire. All revisited and rearranged by the charming Trio style in a melting pot of musical genres. And so "Volare" (Nel blu dipinto di blu) is mixed together with Jamaican reggae music, South American rhythms up to an intimate romantic atmosphere, while John Coltrane is imagined "tarantelling" in the streets of Naples...
