Come along and  support a night of great music!, hope to see you  there.

THE ORPHANS:  Inspired by artists such as Gillian Welch and Ryan Adams,Nick Payne and Lyn Taylor  have brought their  unique experiences and abilities to produce the distinct sound and feel that  is The Orphan’s music, an acoustic roots style of bluegrass and country  with very different musical roots.

CHICKENHEAD: Chicken head’s Roy Payne is one of  Sydney’s best-kept  secrets. Over the years, Roy has forged a reputation  as a  first-rate guitarist and lap-steel player, appearing live alongside  people  such as Don Walker (Cold Chisel) and renowned Nashville  songwriter Jim  Lauderdale.

LUKE KOTERAS: Since his 2006 album FATE , Luke  has taken his unique style around the World, even perfroming at The Cavern in  Liverpool – His virtuosity encompasses not only acoustic contemporary style   finger picking but also electric. His new Instrumental album  Acoustically Yours is due out this month.

NATHALIE D NAPOLEON: Sharing her time between  California and Western Autralia, she believes one woman with a guitar   and a voice can make a difference. This  singer-songwriter who goes  solo with a genre-straddling fusion of Americana,  indie-rock, and  alt-country, makes her mark on the roots music  scene with original  lyrics, impassioned delivery and her lamenting reflection  on the human  condition.

KRISTY COOTE:  After touring around the United  States this year, she has collected a  number of co-written songs from  LA, Nashville and Bermuda. Her sound has been  described as a “sweet  ethereal vocal style which wraps around her distinct  earthy pop sound”  with influences from ELvis.

NICK AND LIESL: Just back from their second   european tour, these two unique voices, flowing hamonies and captiving  songs,  are  coming from two singer/songwriters with influences  ranging from Nick’s  love of Cat Stevens and James Taylor to Liesl’s  classical songbooks and the  local folk music of her childhood home  Sweden. Currently playing on the ABC Local Network and Triple  J.
