Geroge St Thebarton
The Yearlings + Corey Theatre
Two guitars, two voices.
Quiet, intimate, raw and powerful, producing a new strain of acoustic music, distilling Americana through the filter of distinctly Australian life.
Robyn Chalklen and Chris Parkinson made their first album in 2002 and now have five studio albums in their catalogue, working alongside such greats as Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm), and building a reputation for their evocative songwriting, keen harmonies and mesmerizing live performances.
The Yearlings have made numerous festival appearances at home and abroad, most recently playing shows across the USA culminating at the famous Bluebird Café in Nashville.
With Parkinson’s signature guitar tones and Chalklen’s hypnotic prose The Yearlings express the lyrical truth of storylines about real life that poetically tug at the heartstrings.
“There is an almost indescribable musical lexicon that surrounds a Yearlings performance, and it is one that can barely be described, it must be seen and he heard for one’s self.” – FasterLouder
