Shaun Kirk + The Timbers + Morgan Bain at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fri 27th March 2015
BAROQUE ROOM
86 Bathurst Rd (Upstairs from ‘The Harp & Fiddle’ Irish Bar)
Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique is extremely pleased to present this amazing line up of touring artists for a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience them together in a terrific space in the Blue Mountains.

One-man-blues-band ‘Shaun Kirk‘ wowed audiences at the 2013 Blue Mountains Music Festival and is touring from Melbourne.
High energy, party anthem, folk explosion ‘The Timbers’ are on a run from Adelaide.
Opening up the night will also be touring WA artist Morgan Bain. Known for his incredible vocals he blends alternative soul, blues and rock.

Shaun’s profile and recognition as a talented performer has steadily grown over the past 18 months, supporting artists such as Joe Bonamassa, Big Bill Morganfield (son of the late great Muddy Waters), Diesel, Ash Grunwald and Mia Dyson as well as appearing in the line-up at many of Australia’s top festivals; Woodford Folk Festival, St Kilda Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival and Byron Bay Bluesfest. He was voted the ‘Youth People’s Choice Award’ at the 2012 Blues at Bridgetown Festival, as well as winning the public’s vote for ‘Best New Artist’ at the 2013 St Kilda Festival, substantiating his increasing popularity with the punters.
The forthcoming album ‘Steer the Wheel’ is Kirk’s most experimental and electrified record to date, seeing him explore beyond the blues influences that have characterised his previous work. With influences ranging from rock, soul and rhythm & blues, ‘Steer the Wheel’ is a collaborative record, which has enjoyed an inclusive approach from conception to completion. As well as collaborating with ARIA award-winning rhythm section of Danny McKenna (drums) and Grant Cummerford (bass) to lay down the core of all tracks, Shaun has bought together some of Australia’s finest musicians and vocalists to produce his most diverse release to date. Songs such as ‘Give to the Needy’ and ‘No One Gonna Love You When You Love Like That’ are a true example of the raw energy in Shaun’s music whilst ‘Twenty Two’ is a ballad with a clear message. Country blues number ‘Two Hands on the Wheel’ features Shaun’s good friends Kyle and Dan Lizotte (Halfway to Forth) and sounds like the soundtrack for many a road trip. ‘Stitches’ is packed with soul and demonstrates a vocal flexibility that Shaun has kept locked away until now. His blues influences are far from neglected, with songs like ‘Blues for My Birthday’, ‘Find Me A Lady’ and Tony Joe White’s ‘As the Crow Flies’ reflecting the sound he has become recognised for in his relatively short but impressive time as a performer.

The Timbers (Adelaide) are an alternative, modern Australian, country, gypsy, bluegrass, party anthem, celtic, punk, folk explosion! They have toured and played festivals all over Australia and are hitting the Blue Mountains between this year’s Yakandandah Folk and Folk In Broke Festivals.

THE TIMBERS’ thumping rhythms and big misty mountain melodies will cast you away to a sweaty, smoky, melting-pot of folk, roots and Celtic bushman brassy punk. They rollick and hammer their way through live gigs with abundant energy and have become festival favourites throughout Australia. This Adelaide based band has an infectious desire to take their audience on a wild ride of non stop musical passion with no limits.

Their debut album “Lawless”, released in 2014, received Triple J airplay and became a favourite on community radio stations Australia-wide. Rhythms magazine wrote “Imagine contemporary folk-rock bands such as Mumford & Sons and Graveyard Train, somewhere in the Australian bush or on the high seas and you have an idea of what The Timbers are about”.
The versatility of the Timbers music has allowed them to share the stage and many festival line ups with acts such as John Butler Trio, Ball Park Music, Eskimo Joe, Xavier Rudd, Sasquatch, The Beards, Little May, and The Audreys. 2014 was a break through year for the Timbers seeing them play to large crowds at Caloundra Music Festival (Qld), Illawarra Folk Festival (NSW), and Gorgeous Festival (SA). The year was topped off by being invited to perform to a crowd of 40,000 people at Adelaide’s New Years Eve event.
The Timbers were the 2013 winners of the Emily Borrows award from APRA. This accolade entitled them to be added to the illustrious list of SA winners including The Hilltop Hoods and The Beards.
In December 2014 the timbers set up a recording studio in a church in the Adelaide Hills and began recording their second album. Only 7 months after the release of their first album “Lawless”. The band has taken their first eager steps in a bold project due for release in 2015.

Their explosive start in the Adelaide music scene is worthy recognition of this band’s ability to marry exceptional musicianship with highly accomplished songwriting. Hailing from far away lands such as Mount Gambier, TAS, Ireland, and the Adelaide Hills, The Timbers have worked tirelessly together to create a unique high energy musical experience not purely confined to alternative folk. With songs soaked in male vocal harmonies, awash with intricate banjo and mandolin licks, soaring trumpet lines, on a foundation of solid piano and all held together by pounding dance rhythms from foot percussion, there is surely something for everyone in The Timbers repertoire.

Guaranteed to get you up and moving whether you like to swing dance, Balkan Folk dance, or just go out and shake it!

Their Performance evokes the old world and the new, the eerily haunting air of sounds and movements from the East, with definite roots in the West. Influences are far and wide but range from New Orleans Jazz, to Eastern European Roma and Klezmorim music, Manouche Swing, to Acoustic Metal. They often incorporate live Belly Dance and Circus Arts in their shows.
Syncopated Rhythms and original dance vignettes. Guaranteed to get you up and dancing! It will put the p in your pistol and the zing in your zinger. Guaranteed to boost your bravado and perk your package, tempt your temptress with The Underscore Orkestra. An experience you have to see and hear to believe.

The Underscore Orkestra has taken many forms over the years and has travelled far and wide in many ways. Including vegetable oil powered tour bus, planes, trains, boats, autos, hitch hiking. Their favourite way is by bicycle, which they have done numerous times in Europe.

The Underscore Orkestara will be on their 3rd tour of Australia. They have built up a good following from their extensive touring in the past (previous tours included a range of shows over 3 months and also multiple festival appearances at Illawarra Folk Festival, Cobargo Folk Festival, Numeralla Folk Festival as well as Peats Ridge Music Festival and Rainbow Serpent Festival and this year’s Falls Festival in Bryon Bay!)
They will be all up and down the East coast from QLD, NSW, VIC, and back up again.

“The band’s Eastern European sound is sort of a mix between Gypsy rock big guns DeVotchKa and Gogol Bordello. They’ve got the very ethnic sound of the former, and though they play fast, it’s not at the manic punk level of the latter. The phrase ‘foot-stompin’ also is apt, as their original and traditional pieces have a way of making people move” – Reno Retro Mix

“You know a band is good when at the end of their sound check the audience starts clapping” – New Paltz Cultural Collective

The Squeezebox Trio are an amalgamation of piano accordion, violin, two gitane guitars and hell of a lot of Jazz and folk stylings! Thomas Hodson, Michael O’Donnell, Javen Sanchez and Luke Chapman (respectively) form the increasingly inaccurately named ‘THE SQUEEZEBOX TRIO.’ Formed in 2012, this ensemble of vagabond musicians have since brought their energetic live performances and unique musical styling to the Jazz Manouche genre popularised by Django Reinhardt in the 1930’s to several corners of Aus; incorporating influences and a repertoire of European Folk Song, Bossa’s, French Musettes, Jazz favourites, Disney/film classics as well as many originals.

THE RUMJACKS Album Launch with Special Guests Belle Jar AT HOTEL GEARIN, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Thur 5th Mar 2015

Troubadour Touring and Fusion Boutique Present:
The Rumjacks
Special Guests Belle Jar (Blue Mountains)

Thur 5th March 2015
HOTEL GEARIN
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN
273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba
Blue Mountains NSW 2780.

With their brand new studio album ‘Sober & Godless’ due for release in early 2015, The Rumjacks are hitting the road in February, March & April for an extensive Australian tour.

Born of a desire to make music in general and Celtic-flavoured punk in particular, The Rumjacks are an entity rather askew, cast adrift of the mainstream and the industry as a whole. These five musical misfits from the cobbled streets of old Sydney town are a group unto themselves and the music they’ve made their own.

Since the group’s inception, they’ve come to embrace the oddball world they’ve found themselves in, becoming part of the gnarled, handmade furniture you might say, drawing from a solid base and pushing, stretching, bullying it to their every whim, creating something of their own. You may make comparison to The Pogues, Billy Bragg, The Dropkick Murphys et al, and you’d be right to, but you’d be well advised to acknowledge the twist these five have put to their music themselves, making it something unique.
“Well it’s absolutely vital,” concurs front man McLaughlin on putting their own stamp on this music, something that has led to the band cultivating a marvellous versatility which sees them comfortable on any number of stages, in any number of situations. From their heavy Celtic roots to the driving punk rock rhythms, the cheeky lyrics and rampant, greased up bonhomie that drips from the stage whenever these five step up, this is what The Rumjacks bring.

It’s been this versatility, not to mention the flat-out talent and drive they exude, that’s seen the band share stages with artists as diverse as Gogol Bordello, Guttermouth, the Dropkick Murphys, GBH, UK Subs and The Aggrolites. It’s seen the two releases since their debut EP – the Sound As A Pound EP (’09) and debut long-player, Gangs Of New Holland (’10) – stand up as solid works, finding places amongst the collections of fans of rock, punk, folk, reggae, Irish and god knows what else.

Frankie McLaughlin: Vocals, tin whistle.
Johnny McKelvey: Bass, vocals
Anthony Matters: Drums, vocals
Gabriel Whitbourne: Guitars, vocals
Adam Kenny: Mandolin, banjo, bouzouki, bodhran, acoustic guitar, vocals

Ignited in the catacombs of Paris, Belle Jar brings you the madness and mayhem of infectious rhythms and manic fables.
They play an original blend of Gypsy, Klezmer, Swing and Pop styles, with English and French lyrics. They tell stories of anti-heroes trying to break out of the ordinary that will get you up and dancing.
Belle Jar‘s infectious energy has spread from festival to festival over the last couple of years. Their genuine interaction with people and their passion for what they do is evident. These guys will fire up your old country longings as wild boom-chak boom-chak rhythm meets bent melody.”
