PRESALE ENDS – SUN 7 JUL, MIDNIGHT (SYD)

Over a decade and a half since they formed THE FELICE BROTHERS have evolved and matured into the very essence of soulful cosmic Americana and along the way have developed a truly powerful but wonderfully unpredictable live outfit combining edgy, rollicking roots music with fine playing and superlative singing. On record THE FELICE BROTHERS are magnificent. Live is where they really shine.
Blooming storms permeate THE FELICE BROTHERS’ first album in three years. With “Undress”, the band’s folk-rock, down-home country sound and vision has matured and focused and finds THE FELICE BROTHERS doing their best at making sense of our troubled modern times. And troubled times never sounded so good and so heartfelt as they do at a FELICE BROTHERS show.

Where do we start with JIM LAUDERDALE who is appearing at his Australian shows with his band. Since the mid 1980s he has released more than 30 albums and built a reputation as one of the most contemporary country, bluegrass and roots singers and songwriters. A gifted and constantly entertaining live performer (he tells really great stories) JIM LAUDERDALE and his band promises to be a treat of epic proportions. This is the zenith of real deal, from-the-heart, honky tonkin’ country music played by a master.
These concerts will find LAUDERDALE drawing heavily on his magnificent new album “From Another World”, along with material from right across his catalogue, plus some surprises. What would a JIM LAUDERDALE live show be without surprises?

The one, the only, how could there be another POKEY LA FARGE returns to Australia for solo performances, an environment where his inspired mix of country, blues, swing and folk really have the opportunity to shine. Take it from Ketch from Old Crow Medicine Show: “All I can say for certain is nobody sings much like Jimmie Rodgers anymore and nobody crows, rakes, rips, yips, shouts, buzzes or croons quite like POKEY LA FARGE either.”
Joining POKEY LA FARGE on his run of Australian shows is SIERRA FERRELL, one of the big talking points of Out On The Weekend last year. A jingle-janglin gypsy tornado of sound that doesn’t seem to care what the rules are, SIERRA FERRELL seamlessly fuses old and new into something distinctly her own. Call her blues, call her country, call her old, weird, Americana. Call her one of a kind. SIERRA FERRELL is all of those things – and a whole lot more.
