THE MAES - 30TH JUNE AT THE CANDELO TOWN HALL
WITH SUPPORT BY PETE WILD
Multi-award-winning Melbourne contemporary folk outfit, The Maes (formerly The Mae Trio) is the brainchild of sisters Maggie and Elsie Rigby. Born into the arms of the Folk music community in Australia, both sisters were side of stage at their first folk festival when they were four weeks old and have been absorbing and exploring folk music since that time.
The Maes’ latest, self-titled record set for release in May 2019 is a return to the sisters’ folk music roots. Gentle, intimate and conversational, the album is an unadorned showcase of Maggie and Elsie’s superb songwriting as well as honest, relaxed and stunning vocal and instrumental performances > Read More/ Tickets
JEFF LANG - candelo town hall - sat. 27th july 7pm
WITH SUPPORT BY CHELSY ATKINS
Australian guitarist-songwriter-vocalist-producer, Jeff Lang has built a reputation for making startling music that is accomplished, intricate, gutsy, melodic and loaded with soul. Often taking unexpected turns, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a stylistically diverse catalog of over 25 albums.
Alone In Bad Company, Jeff’s latest album, presents the most organic union of his talents and influences yet. It’s filled with exquisitely sung stories and melodies, demonstrating that Jeff is nothing if not a lover of song. Each time he steps up to take a solo, his hard‐won style is unmistakable – fluid but with an edge‐of‐the‐seat recklessness. Acoustic fingerpicking, slide guitar, electric lead, banjos and mandolins drop into place like puzzle pieces. Though Jeff plays and writes nearly everything on the album, steadfast cohorts Danny McKenna and Alison Ferrier deliver on cue and master writer Don Walker shares his peerless wit on two songs.
“Jeff Lang is, in my humble opinion, a national treasure, a truly gifted songwriter and an
outstanding guitarist. He has been inspiration to countless Australian and internationally
renowned roots artists and surely has a place in history as one of this generation’s finest.
He has really touched me and musically, I had a kind of revelation…”
– John Butler, John Butler Trio
