This trip sees them perform at Illawara and Cygnet Folk Festivals and other select dates.
A valentines day special event at the gorgeously refurbished Baroque Room with special Guests LE HOT CLUB DE KATOOMBA TRIO
From ballads and singalongs to high-energy dance parties, they have spent years telling their stories with guitars and violins, with accordions and bass, with melodies and music makers gleaned from their wanderings. The band is from a sparsely populated region of Canada’s West Coast. They travel community to community, bringing people together at halls on the Gulf Islands, barns in the prairies, kitchen parties in towns, clubs in the cities and festivals all summer long.
Their music weaves a multicultural Canadian tapestry: Roots, Eastern European Dance Party, Jazz, Bluegrass, Flamenco, African, Latin, Celtic, Métis, Rock, Gospel, Blues, Canadiana while the band represents an eclectic background - German Mennonite, Chinese, Dutch, Scottish and Métis. These troubadours remind you that this music could not exist without warm bodies in search of harmony.
Australian violinist Simon Watts (String Theories, Skarrat & Watts) and French singer/guitarist Julien Clement (Julien Joel Clement, Disco Frisco) team up to deliver classic French chansons and an assortment of Hot Club swing tunes. They will also be joined by Neill Duncan on sax and drums on the night too!
Come join us for a terrific night of Gypsy - Folk - Roots - Jazz - Bluegrass - Celtic - Latin and more!
