A tribute show to Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash! Over three nights David Lane and Michael O’Flaherty will perform a wide range of songs from the two folk and country giants. With a catalogue of well over 100 studio albums and countless bootleg recordings, the Adelaide duo have a lot to cover.
From their classics (such as ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ and ‘The times they are a changing’), to their less-known B-side gems, to their utterly bizarre Christmas albums, everything is on the table. It will be as if the two movies ‘I Walk the Line’ and ‘I’m Not There’ had a love child, but with far more attractive lead actors than Joaquin Phoenix or Heath Ledger.
David Lane is an Adelaide boy and is out and about in the local pub music scene. Growing up, he was enamoured with the tunes of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. Now, he rarely plays a gig without slipping a Cash or Dylan classic in the mix. About a year ago, one became two as Michael O’Flaherty joined the ensemble as the resident banjo player and second vox, and together they have toured all across South Australia. This will be their first fringe show, and they hope for it to be a hit!

Led by the collective voice of sisters Leah and Chloe,
and joined by their beloved band – percussionist Biko Casini and bassist/guitarist David Brown – Rising Appalachia is a melting pot of folk music simplicity, textured songwriting, and those bloodline harmonies that only siblings can pull off.
Listen for a tapestry of song, claw-hammer banjo tunes, fiddle, double bass, acoustic guitar, djembe, barra, bodhran, spoken word,
and a wealth of musical layering that will leave you called to action
and lulled into rhythmic dance simultaneously. It is both genre bending and familiar at the same time.
Proudly born and raised in the concrete jungle of Atlanta, Georgia, sharpening their instincts in the mountains of Appalachia, and fine tuning their soul on the streets of New Orleans they have crafted a
6-album career from the dusts of their passion.Rising Appalachia brings to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture. Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life’s work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance.
Whether playing at Red Rocks or in rail cars, at Italian street fairs or to Bulgarian herbalists, this fiercely independent band has blazed a unique and colorful path across the globe. 11 years into their movement, Rising Appalachia believes that the roots of all these old songs are vital to our ever evolving soundscape.…
AND we are blessed to have them here in Adelaide on their first Australian tour after they headline at Woodford Folk Fest!
Harvesting a blend of folk/world/roots music as well as a vibe all their own, Rising Appalachia use a variety of indigenous and traditional instruments and soaring voices to create mesmerizing, magical and unique music that has garnered them a growing audience worldwide.
Sisters Leah Song and Chloe Smith along with percussionist Biko Casini and multi-instrumentalist David Brown form a quartet that transcends the genre of roots music as well as promoting a thread of community with environmental and social activism.
To suggest that Steve Poltz isn’t normal is about as safe a statement as one could make. For music fans on both sides of the equator, this is a very good thing. Born among the hearty seafaring folk of Canada’s Halifax, Nova Scotia, Poltz has lived most of his life in Southern California, where the sun treated his rocky Canadian DNA like clothes in a dryer. Naturally a spectrum of cultural and emotional tensions arose and he eventually sought refuge in the art of songwriting, where he tapped into an unforgettable and often horrifying depth of unhinged genius. Steve Poltz is regarded as one of the most talented and prolific songwriters of our time. His songs have been among the longest running ever on the Billboard Top 100 and they regularly appear in movie soundtracks and TV shows.

Their commitment to writing lyrics relating to real issues concerning family, childhood memories and times of great personal value resonate with audiences immediately. The Young Folk are known for their immaculate harmonies and sing tales of times that impacted on their lives with a commitment that is hard to match and easy to fall in love with. “This is folk in Cuban heels.” – Ireland’s Evening Herald
Mike McClellan’s early career spanned the 70’s and into the 80’s, and brought chart-topping songs and gold albums. After a break he has recorded three albums and through touring and performing he has re-established his ‘national treasure’ status. There are new songs to add to his list of classics – Song and Danceman, The One I Love, Saturday Dance and Rock’n Roll Lady. When Song and Danceman was released in 1974, Mike McClellan was already an established performer on the acoustic music scene. This first hit single did no more than reinforce what they already knew: that he was one of the best songwriters to emerge from this country in many years and among its most talented singer/guitarists. His new album ‘No Intermission’ is as good as anything he has ever done in his long and outstanding career.
