Two exciting new shows for March and April!

In March, Tim Guy brings his full band to play his brand new album Chords. This record is packed full of outrageously catchy songs, and see TG upbeat, optimistic and having a great time. It’s infectious and his band has some of Melbourne’s best musicians so the live show more than does justice to the tunes.

Check out his video for St Petersburg HERE and Tim’s album in full on bandcamp HERE.

He’ll be joined by Emily Barker who returns to Australia for a brief run of shows. Emily grew up in WA, but has made the UK her home and built an acclaimed career in that part of the world. She has released four albums, done extensive global touring, and had her music featured prominently as the theme song in BBC shows Wallander and The Shadow Line. Here is one of those tracks, with no lack of Melbourne references in it!

Let me introduce you to Michael Waugh through his classic folk tune Heyfield Girl. It’s an absolute beauty for mine, but the album is full of them.

I feel like our timing is perfect for Michael’s album launch on April 16 at Folk Club. I’ve been seeing his name in the media a lot lately as everyone begins to discover his gorgeous new album.

I remember seeing Michael at Port Fairy Folk Fest years ago, and it immediately grabbed me how authentic, honest and effecting he is as a songwriter and person. Many a tear in the audience that day.

The Australian gave it 4 stars over the weekend (see HERE) and we’re very excited to launch his album at Folk club on April 16! Check out 3 of the albums track at Michael’s website HERE.

Michael will be joined by Matt Glass and somewhat of a folk club regular in Mandy Connell who has played several times with Stray Hens and is always outstanding.

A reminder also that our first show of the 2016 series is on Feb 21st with Broads & Dan Parsons. That one is on it’s way to selling out so I suggest grabbing tix in the next couple weeks.

Happy that we’re staying afloat in 2016, in an amazing space at the Bakehouse, and presenting such a great set of concerts to open the year. Hope to see you there!
