Lou Bradley & the Gentleman

Lou Bradley & the Gentleman
Friday, October 03 2014, From 8.30pm

Some country voices are as fresh as a mountain waterfall. Think Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss or Gillian Welch and then add Australian artist Lou Bradley to the list.

A first-rate songwriter, with a unique turn of phrase and a playful ironic touch, her songs avoid the crushing blandness that dogs the lyrics on most Australian country albums.

Coining the phrase Hillbilly pop to describe her own blend of alt country, bluegrass, folk and mountain music, Lou has been captivating audiences all over the country after winning the inaugural John Butler Seed touring grant in 2005.

MILO GREEN

MILO GREEN
Saturday, October 04 2014, 6.30pm

Playing his own originals and some well known tunes, Milo Green's music has a fun, folky feel that makes you want to move.

With masterful guitar work, a smooth voice and a whole lot of love, Green's own powerfully crafted acoustic tunes, which are etched in blues, folk and rock tradition, could easily have come from a previous era like the swinging '60s.
He also puts his own twist on great songs by Neil Young, Paul Kelly, Bob Marley and more.

This fun-loving entertainer is a fiend for demon-like harmonica solos and foot-stomping breakdowns. Sit back and let your ears be treated to a smooth and memorable solo performance.

It’s a journey that has seen the Novocastrian tour with international superstars like Taylor Swift and Alan Jackson, play to over 50,000 people in Nashville at the world’s biggest country music festival and build a large, devoted following as he’s played the length and breadth of his native land.

In 2013, Morgan was awarded the CMC New Oz Artist of the Year award at the CMC Music Awards. The award was fan voted and solidified his status as one of the hottest young performers in Australian country.
