The Grahams (USA)
Special Guests
All Our Exes Live in Texas
Marcus Blacke
86 Lurline St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia

The Grahams are the creative union of lifelong romantic partners Alyssa and Doug Graham. They combine soulful bluegrass with hints of earthy Americana, adding colors from traditional folk and country blues, into an infectious blend of storytelling that results in songs of love, loss, yearning, and the view from rural American roads less traveled.

Their album “Riverman’s Daughter,” is a winning culmination of The Grahams’ long journey into the heart of America, the inspiration they derived from immersion into classic American music, and the natural and honest talent they have for bringing forth a modern musical idiom steeped in tradition.

Performing as part of their Australian Tour at Katoomba RSL, they will also be joined by All Our Exes Live in Texas and Marcas Blacke on the night.

All Our Exes Live in Texas is a fantasy draft of Sydney musical talent – Elana Stone, Katie Wighton, Hannah Crofts & Georgia Mooney – all beautiful performers in their own right, here combining in four-part folk heaven.

On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, All Our Exes deliver tunes that are clearly crafted with taste, care and skill in the context of a spontaneous, playful and utterly charming live show. With four songwriters and four unique voices, All Our Exes make music that is refreshingly different, drawing influence from traditional four-part harmony to create a brand new type of modern folk. Fair warning: You’ll need your charisma sunnies or you’ll walk out of the building a little bit in love.

They tour Australia this October to celebrate the release of their brand new single Tell Me, from their forthcoming debut album.
Tell Me is about mess and chaos – a disarray of love, punch-ups and everything in between. It’s a song you’ll have floating around in your head for days.
Recorded at Linear Studios and engineered, produced and mixed by Chris Vallejo (Passenger) the single features Evan Mannell (Bertie Blackman, Ngaiire) on drums and Zoe Hauptmann (Paul Kelly, Lanie Lane) on bass.
Tell Me showcases the magic that is All Our Exes Live In Texas. Idyllic harmonies, accompanied a gorgeous mix of mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, and that rare ability to combine the humorous and the heartfelt in their songs and on stage banter.

“All Our Exes Live In Texas filled the Howler bar with incredible harmonies and a folky vibe. They clearly enjoy performing, and their talent combined with their relaxed and funny banter caused the audience to instantly fall in love with them. Their accordion and mandolin accompaniment in tandem with ukulele and classical guitar adds a unique dimension to their music, ensuring everyone who sees them play won’t be able to forget them. These guys certainly make a big impression” –- The AUreview

“..the Sydney outfit are tight in performance and witty in banter…with just the right mix of raw talent and irreverent performance, they are a joy to watch.” –

“..stirring folk loveliness” – Triple J

Marcus Blacke and his songs are birthed from life its experiences and many meanderings. His debut album is complete, having worked alongside local Aria award winning producer Govinda Doyle.

Marcus Blacke is well known for his approach to songwriting. Intricately plucked southern style folk guitar weaved within layers of hand crafted storyteller wisdom, sprinkled with the human condition.

Marcus Blacke recieved a four star review on Triple J Unearthed:
“I love the driving, tallest man on earth vibe to this track. Nicole Cheek, triple j”

Lime & Steel + The Slowdowns
86 Lurline St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia

Celtic Bluegrass Folk +
Hillbilly Disco Country Rock n Roll Soul!

With a driving banjo, doghouse bass, a sweet fiddle, Lime and Steel take a bluegrass string band, throw in a rock drum kit and a uniquely Australian intonation for a show of originals that moves from pub rock anthems about EH Holdens to convict murder ballads. Lime and Steel’s sweet harmonies twang through Bogan bluegrass love-songs and wind up into a spoon-tappin’ fast-pickin’ wine-soaked hillbilly family singalong.

The Slowdowns are the best Hat Band in town!
These city folk with a penchant for cowboy boots n hats, both kinds of music, beer, cigarettes whisky and wild, wild women will drive you crazy, they’ll drive you insane!

The Slowdowns will, stand and deliver! Gravelly lead vocals, five part harmonies, slide banjo, harmonica and blistering guitars precariously held together by a rhythm section that rolls like a runaway train!

Featuring some of Sydney’s busiest musos, members of the Slowdowns have, over the years, shared the stage with: Louis Tillet, The Paper Scissors, Bluejuice, Juke Baritone, the Re-mains, Jeff lang, Ian Rilen, Toxic Vomit, Leah Flanagan, Dirty Deeds, Tania Bowra, Charlie McMahon, Rahtzee and many, many, many more.

Wanted for murdering the hits, butchering country classics and spicing it up with their original originals the Slowdowns have been spotted at Coonmable Rodeo, Nymagee, the Port of Bourke, Brewarrinna and Karuah RSL’S. You might have chanced upon them at the Peats Ridge Festival, The Wharf Theatre, Carriageworks, The Excelsior and the Junkyard.

Drink up…………… sloooooowwwwwwdddddddooooooooooooooowwn!
