1. Alex and Emma (AUS)
Alexander Black is a twenty-three year old SCALA award winning folk/singer-songwriter and local Adelaide musician. Currently working on his debut EP, he has definitively sought the pursuit of a serious existence as musical expeditionary, on a journey of artistic enlightenment; A lifer. He has firmly established his own voice as a storyteller of life, and death, and all the madness in between.
Emma Jayne is a twenty-two year old 2017 SCALA Grand Finalist. With her dulcet tones and songs from the heart, Emma Jayne is the true essence of a singer-songwriter. Compared to the likes of Sara Bareilles and Carrie Underwood, you’ll be captivated by Emma’s charming melodies and refreshingly real lyrics.
Enjoy a taste of contemporary pop/folk music as Alex and Emma combine their talents and invite you to lean in a little bit closer.
2. Scott Cook (CANADA)
Scott Cook (www.scottcook.net) has distilled the stories collected over a decade of near-incessant touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. He has already completed five tours of Australia, including talked-about performances at Woodford, Cobargo, Candelo, Newstead, Illawarra, the National, and Yackandandah folk festivals. In the words of the UK’s RnR Magazine, “there’s nothing flash about Canada’s Cook. He sings his heart and soul, and in doing so lets light flood into your own… Truly one of Woody Guthrie’s children.”
Corin Raymond (www.corinraymond.com) is a legendary Canadian songwriter whose songs are covered by a far flung community of established roots musicians and campfire enthusiasts. Acoustic Guitar calls Raymond’s latest JUNO award-nominated album Hobo Jungle Fever Dreams “a hypnotic, literate collection of dark tall tales… Romantic, immediate, and narcotic”, while The Globe and Mail says “Corin Raymond is a storyteller who by the end of the night you’ll have known your whole life.”
The Qld duo Hussy Hicks go from boisterous blues and roots, to contemporary folk fortified with delicious vocal harmonies; alt country inspired tales from the road to 80’s style power ballads. Openers Michaela Jenke and her killer guitarist Reid Sampson will just be back from their Tamworth shows. Equine artist Yvette Frahn will exhibit. Wines from Ricca Terra Farms. Fabulous food from Forage Supply Co. What's not to love?More info and Tix at www.wombatflat.com
