George St Thebarton
Two of Adelaide’s most endearing and exciting folk ensembles will join forces on Friday 6th September at the Wheatsheaf Hotel Thebarton. The Fed Peasants and Porchlight Parade will make you laugh, dance and cry with their unique and beautiful takes on folk music.
Music starts at 9pm.
FREE entry as always 🙂
The Fed Peasants play jazzy, upbeat gypsy-folk music, with songs covering a range of social, political and personal issues. The project started as a busking duo when lead singers/songwriter Adriana & Tom were cycling around Europe with their dog back in 2014. It then expanded into a 5 piece in Edinburgh, Scotland, where they played many gigs and recorded their first album. Last year the band went through yet another transition and reformed here in Adelaide with Shivani on keys, Solomon on percussion and Simon on the fiddle. Bonding over conservation & nostalgia the current line-up knocked up another album of catchy songs, titled ‘Humble Pie’, which they launched last month to thousands of adoring fans at The Exeter.
Porchlight Parade are folk group Kate Henderson (guitar and vocals), Tom Kalleske (guitar, banjo and vocals), Pearl Tassell (double bass, accordion) and Emma Luker (fiddle).
Kate’s original songs, with their delicate beauty and dark depths, have captivated as many audiences as her down-to-Earth and often unpredictable introductions have delighted (she has been known to engage audiences in activities such as hand-knitting and paper mâché). With their orchestral take on contemporary folk, Porchlight Parade’s performances take an audience on a journey through high seas, along the edge of sleeplessness and to the dark and whimsical side of everyday life.
