After spending years in a musical wasteland, Mandy Hawkes began to write songs again, and became preoccupied with singing about mortality, end times and other serious themes. Raised on a steady diet of Hymns and Dylan, Mandy’s unconventional voice is equal parts weary soul traveller and folk storyteller. She sings authentic songs that will move even the stoniest of hearts, marrying folk traditions with Australian country.

In 2017 she released her debut EP The Water Was Deep, a collection of songs contemplating death, afterlife and Hawkes’ religious upbringing – recorded and co-produced with Bill Chambers at Chambers Avenue Studio. 2023 hails the release of the Northern Rivers folksinger’s debut full length album We Were Just Kids, recorded and co-produced with Jordan Power. This body of work exhibits more mature songwriting and diverse sounds, yet maintains Hawkes’ deeply personal and authentic narratives. It charts a path through the various stages of relationship breakdown and grief, with some reflections on childhood and the human condition.

“Hawkes has a background rich in text and music, and a desire to explore, through her music, the question of what it means to be on this earth, and to make sense of it. Her songs reflect this thoughtfulness and, as her heart is fully in them, connect movingly with the listener.” – Sunburnt Country Music

“Mandy’s music is real! She writes songs that assure us she’s actually lived what she’s singing about! And I love her voice!” – Bill Chambers

Mandy has performed at Mullumbimby Music Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, The River Folk Festival and was a grand finalist at the 2022 Gympie Muster Talent Search.
Joining Mandy on the night will be Christina Webster performing on banjo, harmonies and keys and Sam Troy on pedal steel.

Les Thomas is a Truth-telling troubadour sharing stories and songs to move, enlighten and inspire.
“There are no riches but the riches of love. And there’s nothing you can’t rise above”. Whether it’s the sustaining invocation to his young son, or the pain and desperation of our forgotten peoples, Les Thomas sings true to the heart of every listener. His intense lyrical style, and impassioned musical presentation enthral with deftly woven stories that we can’t walk away from. His songs remain on our lips for days after they are heard. Les Thomas is the champion of generations of Melbourne songwriters through his renowned Unpaved Songwriter Sessions. And the passion he brings to writing and presenting the songs of our times is an experience you will feel rewards your soul, making him a must-see artist.

Les Thomas sets his lyricism to the sounds of country-folk and Americana while drawing inspiration from the likes of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Steve Earle as well as local legends like Archie Roach, Kev Carmody and Paul Kelly.
Coming from a culturally and racially diverse family background, and with decades of grass-roots activism as a unionist and social justice advocate, Les has a strong and direct connection to his community in Naarm/Melbourne and beyond.

His music has always been in solidarity with the oppressed, refugees, migrants, dispossessed, socially excluded and marginalised peoples and a good proportion of his live performances have been at rallies, picket lines and on the back of trucks at protests.
Over the years, Les has also shared a lot of music writing and interviewing, helping to promote local artists via the Unpaved website and songwriter sessions at The Old Bar and POME Richmond which got to feature people like Liz Stinger, Marlon Williams, Courtney Barnett, Van Walker and many others. He’s interviewed a wide variety of local and international artists including Steve Earle, Jason Isbell, David Bromberg, Eric Bibb and Valerie June.

His debut single ‘Song for Selva’ is based on a letter from a Tamil asylum seeker who had been detained without charge for 37 months. After strong community radio support for the song in the first week after its release, Selva was removed from Broadmeadows detention centre into “community detention”.
Les is preparing to release his new album “All My Friends Are Superstars” in September 2023 with production by Stephen Grady (The Ahern Brothers). He’ll be touring and promoting the album extensively over the following months and into 2024.

www.facebook.com/lesthomasmusic

Support will be from Bradley Christmas of Sydney Alt country act “Copperline” who will also join Les on keys, for a one off unique show in the Blue Mountains.
Since cutting his teeth in the 90’s with prog rockers Arkenstone, Brad’s musical journey has taken him in some weird and wonderful directions. He’s been a hired toured gun for Steve Kilby (the Church), Jeff Duff and Peter Fenton (Crow) and spent many years living and playing music in the U.K. and Japan, where he wrote and performed music for TV with the likes of Orlando Bloom and Marty Friedman (Megadeth).
With his latest project Copperline, Brad has indulged his life-long passion for classic narrative song writing, Americana and twang. Since releasing their debut record Rusty Fords and Weatherboards, the band has become a festival favourite with appearances at Tamworth, the Blue Mountains Music Festival and Country Rocks among many others.

Isabel Rumble invites listeners into a cocoon of reflection on the subtleties of love, nature and human relationships. Drawing upon a strong folk roots influence, Rumble offers a contemporary sound likened to Laura Marling and Mazzy Star. Isabel’s intuitively crafted songs define an observant and soul-stirring emerging young artist.

Growing up on Yuin country on the far south coast of NSW gifted Isabel with a strong connection to the land, a theme returned to often in her songwriting. After a period of study in Naarm/Melbourne, Isabel has since lived beside Austrian alps, amongst Finnish forests and in the German countryside. She currently resides at the foot of the ancient mountain Kunanyi in Nipaluna/Hobart.|

Isabel has opened for the likes of acclaimed folk duo Lior & Domini, guitar virtuoso Daniel Champagne, and New Zealand’s Holly Arrowsmith. She has played at festivals including Cygnet Folk Festival, Party in the Paddock, Cobargo Folk Festival, PANAMA, Dark Mofo and Junction Arts Festival. Isabel was selected from over 400 applicants to partake in the 2023 Women in Music Mentor program through AIR (Australian Independent Record Labels Association).

Following her emergence into the Australian music scene last year with standout singles Precious Burden and Solitary Dreaming, Rumble has seen widespread national and community radio play and a run of sold out shows in Victoria and Tasmania. Isabel’s debut album Bird Be Brave was released March 31st. Recorded with Tasmanian producer Luke Plumb (The Mae Trio, Ruth Hazleton) the full length album is a powerful debut from one of Australia’s newest contemporary-folk voices.

“captivatingly beautiful stories” – Franklin Folk Club
“maturity and sensitivity beyond her years” – Drumbeat magazine, Folk Federation of Tasmania “Beautifully made … a sublime few minutes of stillness and peacefulness.”
– Dave Ruby Howe (Triple J) review of Solitary Dreaming

With an impressive resume that includes opening for Karl S. Williams’ sell-out Brisbane show, the Sunshine Coasts dweller deliver refreshingly wild vocals sweeps over audiences like the ocean water that runs through her veins.

“Demi Casha smoked the Howl & Moan Records Stage at Falls Festival in 2019, her incendiary live set felt like seeing the love child of Janis Joplin & Patti Smith! Strong, powerful vocals matched with a solid groove! Just Epic!” – Mario Fraietta, curator Howl & Moan Records Stage, Falls Festival Byron Bay 2019.
“Demi Casha’s raw energy and delivery of vocals transcends back to the 70’s likened to Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane. An emerging artist to be seen live.” – Cara Robinson, Hat Fitz & Cara.
“Demi is an incredible raw talent, her voice is unmistakable, powerful and beautiful. I can’t wait to see her career blossom in the years to come!” – Andrea Kirwin, Owner of Peace Run Records.

Singer songwriter Jack Nolan has been performing and releasing music and albums since the mid 1990’s. Along with a five-album solo catalogue Jack also fronted The Kelly Gang, with Rick Grossman, bassist for The Divinyls and Hoodoo Gurus along with Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst and guitar player Martin Rotsey. Their 2004 album ‘Looking for the Sun’ is still considered a hidden gem, with an incredible line-up of musicians that delivered passionate and energetic live shows of the time.

Within Nolan’s music, mysterious and shimmering chords unite his sound. Once quaintly described as ‘Darlinghurst Country’ his sound unites elements of folk, country, rock ‘n’ roll and ambient atmospheres fusing Nolan’s passion for intensely charged electric guitar and finger-picked acoustic guitar.
Jack’s melodic story telling has him right at home performing either solo with just an acoustic guitar or fronting his four piece band.

Jack’s next offering – JINDABYNE – his next LP is set for release in August 2023 sees Nolan hit the road to visit the towns the towns and regions to perform with versatility, either solo, or as a due, trio or full band.

Campbell’s blend of folk, blues and country aligns him with modern Americana but it’s clear his influences are wide ranging, from iconic artists such as Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, The Beatles and The Allman Brothers to contemporary songwriters such as Paul Kelly, Neil Finn and Bernard Fanning.

Campbell’s debut Solo EP ‘a second glance’ is out now.

Campbell’s songs are a side walk cafe, a mood, a glimpse in the mirror. His voice is authentic and intimate, floating with a warmth and a country quality filtered through urban dust.

“Some songs are evocative of a time and place through the singer’s voice; some through the music. Some have the entire package, so that you slip into the song and feel completely transported to that time and place – and this is the case with the new Americana single ‘Bring to the Dawn’ by Pete Campbell” – Sophie Hamley – SUNBURNT COUNTRY MUSIC

Depth of heart and sweetness of soul are two things that flow freely through the music of the beloved Australian folk singer, Sarah Humphreys. From delicate folk music to personal reveries, vibrant collaborations and rousing alt-country songs, Sarah has the ability to infuse it all with her innate sensitivity and an artisanal touch in the craft of song-writing.

Her fourth solo record, STRANGE BEAUTY is another tour de force of emotional and honest songwriting built on melody, melancholy and that sweet and untethered voice.

Sarah Humphreys has toured with and worked alongside artists including Katie Noonan, Kasey Chambers, Sara Storer, Fanny Lumsden, Liz Frencham, Loren Kate, Melody Pool, Kim Richey (USA), Charlie Parr (USA), Blind Boys Of Alabama (USA), Harry Hookey, James Reyne, Mark Seymour (Hunters & Collectors), Kevin Bennett, Glenn Hannah, Felicity Urquart, William Crighton and many more.
Sarah is an award winning session harmony singer, singing on ARIA award winning records, working as a singer for ABC Kids on Giggle & Hoot, ABC Kids education music and the annual Sing Australia Songbook and accompanying CD.

Her songs have been featured in Australian tv and film, including Charlie & Boots, Home & Away, Neighbours, Packed To The Rafters and more.

She is a beloved artist in Australia and features regularly on Australian radio including Triple J, high rotation on ABC Country, ABC National, Double J, RRR and is supported by countless community radio stations across the country.

“Sarah makes singing seem so effortless, graceful and easy that she leaves us feeling only the pure emotion of the words, of the song. She inspires other singers to higher heights. She sounds to me like the warm embrace of a wise, benevolent, beloved sister. She is the Karen Carpenter of our age, but with added spunk and grit.” – Matt Tonks

“From the first time I heard Sarah Humphreys’ beautiful voice I became her biggest fan. She writes songs from the heart that are real and captivating – just like the person she is.” – Kasey Chambers

Sarah’s dear friend, Lauren Gero (Merrick) will also be joining her for the night and singing backing vocals for some songs of the set. She has the most gorgeous voice that not a lot of people have had the pleasure of hearing yet.

Catherine Traicos is a classically-trained pianist, self-taught guitarist, and visual artist hailing from Perth via Zimbabwe. She has also been known to haunt the cobblestoned backstreets of Melbourne, the picture-postcard city sunsets of Sydney, and the charming parks of Adelaide.
A critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, Catherine Traicos has graced the diverse stages of Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Cafe, The Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, the Quarry Amphitheatre in Perth and the Junkyard in Maitland.

Catherine’s passion for songwriting and her determination and commitment to music have seen her play International Arts Festivals around Australia, as well as appear overseas at the Americana Festival and the Live at Heart Festival in Sweden. Catherine has supported significant musical acts including Beth Orton, the Mountain Goats, Dirty Projectors, Rob Snarski, Simone Felice and Spiral Stairs. Catherine’s work has been lauded by Rolling Stone Magazine, the Age, the Sydney Morning Herald, and she was named Unpaved’s Female Artist of the Year (2012).

Catherine worked relentlessly through the pandemic, releasing a distance recorded double A side 7” record (Love Hz and Analog Heart Studios), an ep ‘Choose Your Own Light’ (Tiny Music Studios), culminating in recording a full length distance album, ‘The Nashville Record’ (out on August 25, 2023) in both Perth and Nashville. This was completed at The Doghouse Studios, where the likes of Dolly Parton and Alison Krauss have recorded. She swiftly followed this up with a new cycle of songs recorded with Anna Laverty in Perth earlier this year. Catherine is now set to release two studio albums within the space of a year. As well as this, she has engaged with the songwriting community in Perth through the APRA 321 sessions and also through the WOMPP (Women of Music Production Perth) music camp where she was one of a select few chosen to collaborate with Stella Donnelly, Jaguar Jonze and Sparrows.

Soaring on the back of strong yet vulnerable vocals, Catherine’s work is raw and emotive, strikingly melodic and a perfect hybrid of the personal and professional craft of a unique voice in Australian music.

“…redolent in parts of the ragged, eerie estrogen blues of PJ Harvey or the gaunt bluegrass sonnets of Gillian Welch”
(Album of the Month) The Age, Melbourne Magazine
“These unsettling blues-influenced songs simmer with a sense of noir, an impressive meeting of the earthy song-writing of Beth Orton with the grim undercurrents of, say, Portishead.”
Barnaby Smith, Rolling Stone Magazine
“This album may have been hard to make, but its eventual birth marks Traicos as an artist of exceptional poise and talent, as many of us have known for years.” Samuel J Fell, Sydney Morning Herald

Daniel Aaron is an indie-roots outfit of one – soulful, bare-footed, multi-instrumental. He’s got groove tighter than the federal climate budget, rhythm raucous enough for the toilet paper aisle mid-lockdown and style harder to pin than a chip packet in the wind. Centred in earnest lyricism and the rhythm of the yidaki (didgeridoo), Daniel’s songs will have you doting on beloved people, revering the landscape, and dancing with zest.

With the release of his debut single ‘Running Backwards’ in 2018, an indie pop track, Daniel has been cast into view of the Australian public after winning the Triple J Unearthed competition to be featured on the lineup of Australia’s biggest regional festival, Groovin The Moo, among acts like Paul Kelly, Royal Blood, Ball Park Music and more.|

Following his GTM performance, Daniel bunkered down over the course of the last 3 years to work meticulously on a captivating debut album. With exceptional collaborations, poetic themes and stunning production Daniel Aaron’s recently released, self-titled debut album is a work of art, set to leave a lasting impact on listeners.

From the farthest strains of banjo driven rustic folk to the cutting edge of Cubase driven electronic synth pop his overriding love of melody, rhythm and harmony has crowned his output of 6 LPs and 6 EPs and soundtrack work in the times since the demise of the ‘Lime Spiders’.

Now there is a new LP of ‘Music at Night; Selected Ambient Works 1994-2014’ being released November 2022 including 6 re-workings and 6 unreleased songs of which the first single ‘Firefly’ is set for a September 1 release. The album will also be available as a CD at shows and on Bandcamp as well as the usual streaming platforms .

Richard is the triple ARIA nominated former drummer for Aust Punk rock legends The Lime Spiders and is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and teacher of over 300 students since leaving the band and has explored all musical possibilities from 70’s Art Rock, Folk to Electronica and Ambient/Classical crossover including soundtrack work.
Richard has been performing and touring regularly on the South Coast of NSW and plans are also under way for his works to be scored, performed and recorded by the esteemed classical ensemble ‘The Acacia Quartet’ later this year, with applications to several major classical music festivals in the pipeline.

‘Music at Night; Selected Ambient Works’ will be available November 2022 and the first single ‘Firefly’ is available September 1 on Spotify/YouTube/Apple music.

Cross has been creating music for the last 25 years, from Gerling to Jep and Dep, and has written songs with Kool Keith and Kylie Minogue. He has played shows with artists ranging from Beastie Boys, Beck, and Happy Monday to Johnny Marr, Courtney Barnett and, Ryley Walker.

Fiercely independent, totally devoted, loves telling a story and is always threatening to conquer up something magical with the guitar.

PETER ROWAN Bluegrass Band featuring Chris Henry (USA) – 2016 Australian Tour at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sat 2nd April 2016

Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band featuring Chris Henry (USA)
2016 Australian Tour
+ Special Guests Mike, Tinker & Ged

Sat 2nd April 2016
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN, 273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW 2780.

Legendary US Bluegrass singer-songwriter and Grammy award winner, Peter Rowan, “the voice of Bluegrass”, returns to Australia with his Bluegrass Band, featuring Chris Henry on mandolin, Patrick Sauber on banjo, and Paul Knight on double bass.

Chris Henry is one of the most highly regarded young musicians on the American Bluegrass scene today, “the premier Monroe-style mandolinist of his generation”, while Patrick Sauber has recorded or performed with many artists, including Doc Watson, Chris Hillman, Herb Pedersen, John Fogerty, Richard Greene and Laurie Lewis, and was the banjo-player in the movie, ‘A Mighty Wind’. Paul Knight has been playing with Peter Rowan in various configurations for about 20 years. His driving acoustic bass has been part of recordings and live performances with the likes of Jim Lauderdale and Laurie Lewis, as well as being integral to the sound of the Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band.

Peter Rowan is a true legend of American Bluegrass, with a history dating from 1964 and his role as lead-singer/guitarist with the father of Bluegrass, the late Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys. Rowan then went on to form the revolutionary Folk/Rock band, Seatrain, which recorded two albums in the UK, produced by Beatles producer, George Martin. He left Seatrain to team up with David Grisman, Richard Greene, Bill Keith, & Clarence White (from The Byrds) in bluegrass supergroup, Muleskinner. He and Grisman moved on to form Old & In The Way with Jerry Garcia and Vassar Clements. Since then Rowan has released numerous albums of mostly original songs, is a Grammy Award winner and six-time Grammy nominee, and has performed and recorded with the likes of Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Gillian Welch, Tim O’Brien, Bela Fleck, Tony Rice, Del McCoury, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Flaco Jimenez, and Peter Tosh.

Today at the age of 73, he is still touring constantly, writing new songs, making new recordings, including the highly-acclaimed 2013 release on Compass Records, ‘The Old School’, featuring 10 new original songs, and two more recent albums, “Dharma Blues” and “Peter Rowan’s Twang An’ Groove Vol 1”.

Rowan has demonstrated himself to be an artist of unusual depth and imagination, experimenting with other influences, while never losing track of the deep roots and musical purity that are integral to his presence. He is a singer and songwriter without equal, a multi-instrumentalist and accomplished guitarist. His beautiful singing is of the classic “high-lonesome”, borrowed by Monroe from the Appalachian ballad singers, and which became the defining style of all bluegrass vocalists. The spirit of Bill Monroe lives on in the old and new music he and his band will bring to Australian audiences on this tour.

“Rowan is one of the greatest and most important of all the bluegrass players. He understands what he calls “the joy” of bluegrass and acoustic music, and, with wonderful artlessness, he insists that he is coming to Australia to do nothing more than “be a singer of songs and a player of tunes”. His admirers know he will be much, much more than that.” – Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald

Special Guests Mike, Tinker & Ged

Mike, Tinker & Ged are an eclectic band of misfits with diverse backgrounds in rock, Irish, bluegrass, old timey and everything in between. Comprising of virtuoso fiddler (Slim Dusty’s favourite), sultry singer and all-round musical genius Mike Kerin, Blue Mountains dweller Tinker Duffy, who plays fiery accordion and sings with husky vocals, and Ged Corben who holds the band together with his powerhouse rhythm guitar and delicate slide and mandolin work.

Winner of no less than 6 Golden Guitars, Mike Kerin leads this lineup of long time collaborators & stalwarts of the Oz Folk & Bluegrass scene. Apart from producing, arranging, recording & playing on many fine albums, Mike played for 10 years with 80‘s Country fave’s The Flying Emus, for more than 20 years with Slim Dusty in his Travelling Country Band, and currently tours with Anne Kirkpatrick & numerous national & international acts. Mike was the featured artist on the recently released ABC Fiddle Album “The Devil’s Instrument”. He has also played as a featured artist with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, touring Australia & Slovenia.
Tinker Duffy is no stranger to the NSW Folk scene. Hailing originally from Armidale, she has dazzled audiences with her fiery accordion playing from Newtown to Gulgong, & Yeppoon to Port Fairy over the last 20 years. She has had a lifelong involvement in the traditional music, song and dance of Ireland as well as in bush bands, dance bands, choirs and sessions.
Mike & Tinker are joined by co-hort Ged Corben on guitar, mandolin & resonator. Ged has at one time or another played with the original Cruel Sea, is lead guitarist with The Lime Spiders & moonlights with Rebecca Hancock & The Prison Wives, amongst others.
All three were members of the now defunct Wheelers & Dealers, winners of numerous National Folk Awards, who toured NSW, VIC and QLD extensively over the last 15 years.

The band play an eclectic up tempo mix of Celtic & American Folk, with a touch of Western Swing & Roots thrown in. They feature material from Mike & Tinker’s latest album “For Good Measure”, & Mike’s solo album “ The Dining Room Sessions”.
