Freya Josephine Hollick
Freya Josephine Hollick finished 2017 with a new e.p, new single, 3 Age Music Victoria Award Nominations, a tour with Justin Townes Earle plus festival appearances at Nannup Music Festival, Boogie Festival, Gumball, Broadbeach Country Music Festival, Gympie Music Muster, Kyneton Music Festival, Dorrigo Folk Bluegrass Festival, Out on the Weekend & Queenscliff Music Festival.
In her first Adelaide show for 2018, the old-timey country songbird brings blues and honky tonk goodness that transports you back to early Appalachia, through wartime romance, the golden era of country music and into a cosmic hootenanny.
With a voice that floats between Maybelle Carter, Dolly Parton and Skip James, Freya Josephine Hollick is a lady not to be missed.
Robyn Chalklen and Chris Parkinson combine warm two part harmonies, acoustic guitar and rich electric tremolo landscapes to create a sound that is aged. Old, just the right amount of haunting.
Their “Highway Dancing” album (2008) took them to Brooklyn, New York, to work with legendary performer producer, Larry Campbell (of Bob Dylan, Levon Helm fame), and members of NYC roots band Ollabelle.
Reminiscent of the great alt. country Americana genre, but born out of Adelaide, Australia The Yearlings’ sound is all their own.
They straddle old and new, bitter and sweet, darkness and transcendence – modern day porch music.
