Alt-country outfit Caitlin Harnett and The Pony Boys have had a big year after the release of their debut album “Late Night Essentials”. The record was named Album of the Week on FBi Radio and 2SER, they played a sold-out launch tour and were named Best Live Act in NSW at the National Live Music Awards.

Now they’re back for more. Caitlin Harnett and The Pony Boys will be hitting the road again in 2022 playing 19 dates including Festival appearances and a run of shows up and down the East Coast. The tour will see them road-testing new songs for their upcoming album and playing crowd favourites from “Late Night Essentials”.

Get ready to dance, laugh, cry, hear the unfiltered Caitlin stories first-hand and experience the joy in the room at one of their gigs. Giddy Up!

Her voice is like Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval was jerked out of a long sleep.” – The Guardian

“Lush, Americana-style folk tunes, jangling guitar and a whole lot of honesty.”Sydney Morning Herald

It’s quintessential Caitlin Harnett, vocals that soar with heart and hold the same sense of intimacy as the greats, all set against a backdrop of modern Americana.”- NME

“In particular circles around Sydney the name Caitlin Harnett is spoken in revered tongues, like the whispered password to a music scene Illuminati. Learn the handshake, feel the twang and order a round.” – Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J

Their newest release will warm your heart while gently slicing it in two – our favourite type of ditty.” – RUSSH Magazine

Lead singer Caitlin Harnett fills the void that is a distinct lack of alt-country in Sydney’s music scene. Whether you’re in the big smoke or by the water, this track is bound to become an instant addition to your summer playlist.”FBi Radio

“The Sydney-sider’s single “Make You Feel Blue’ is knock-your-socks-off material. Has there been a sad song thats made us happier in recent times? Probably not.” – Meadow Fest.

“One of the finest slices of country soul you’ll hear this year. A gorgeous mood with that voice that hangs heavy in the air and dips into all the right forlorn corners.” – Post To Wire

Corn Nut Creek are a powerhouse female Alt-Country/Americana duo, hailing from America and Australia. Their original music has been awarded as a category finalist and juror’s top five selection in the 2020 Blues & Roots Radio International Song Contest. The band features the artful banjo work of Tanya Bradley, paired with the deft fiddle and soulful vocals of Danielle Vita, 1st place winner of 2020 Deer Creek Fiddlers Convention (USA) vocalist award. The duo’s original songs tell raw stories of womanhood which are transporting, honest and effortless. Their story is unique; they met in Hong Kong and performed as the Dulcet Tone Collective, then moved back to their respective countries and began writing music together remotely. After four years collaborating in different countries, they reunited—this time in Australia. They have been featured on ABC Country’s ‘Saturday Night Country’, Bluegrass Country Radio’s ‘Foggy Hollow’, WDVX Tennessee’s ‘Sweetgrass’ and Blues & Roots Radio, among many others. They are currently working on their second album, set to be released in August 2021.

KimberleyWheelerIMG_1665web300

Kimberley Wheeler has the uncanny knack of being able to find the right note and the right turn of phrase in the creation and performing of her music. From a classical beginning, this award-winning songwriter came to acoustic roots music along a winding trail through grunge metal, bluegrass and Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks. With a voice described as Celtic Chocolate, she is often compared to singers such as Linda Thompson, Linda Ronstadt and Gillian Welch. Her luscious vocals and gritty songs underpin the band’s acoustic folk pedigree. Kimberley’s late discovery of Tim O’Brien’s, Red On Blonde (a take on Bob Dylan), opened an explosive portal to the folk universe that has directed her ever since. Variously, she has been a member of all-star bluegrass outfit, Uncle Bill, played with Dan Hicks and now has her own band, Roadside Holiday. In 2017 she instigated and curated the all Aussie, Women in String Bands, CD, has been President of Australian Bluegrass & Old Time Association and presently sits on the Musicians Australia Leadership Committee. She is a current finalist in Tamworth Songwriters Association Awards.

Broken Creek Cropped web300

Drawing on Old Time Americana and Celtic traditions, Broken Creek creates intricate chamber folk arrangements for banjo, guitar, violin and voice that reimagines songs, stories and musical traditions from the past to connect them to our present moment.
Lachlan Heycox (guitar/banjo/mandolin/percussion) and Erin Heycox (vocals/fiddle) grew up in rural Victoria steeped in bushbands and balladeers before moving to Melbourne. Named for the creek Erin grew up near, the name Broken Creek signals a love of traditional folk music with an adventurous musical bent to “break” with the same old ways of playing folk music.

2022 sees them releasing their debut album ‘Small Town Anthropologies’ and launching a national Small Town Tour that includes pop-up choirs, church halls, folk festivals and recording tunes in gorgeous locations.
