Hey folks, thanks for dropping by.
So looks like us folks in here Tasie are slowly getting things back to together. I have performed at a few live events and looks like there is a few more on the cards.
Its far from over but I feel that we're all doing our part. Music sure is a great way to unwind and escape.

At this stage, our live stream "Shed Sessions" will be once or twice a month instead of weekly. 
Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and confirmed sessions.

Bob Dylan is the greatest songwriter of all time, being the first artist to have a top 40 album in each decade since the 60s including classics such as 'Blowin in the Wind, Like a Rolling Stone & Knockin on Heavens Door'. Jed Appleton, a seasoned troubadour will be able to perform a few of Dylan’s classic hits and will be showcasing songs from his new album ’The Divide’.

The revered country duo, comprised of brothers Nick and Tom Wolfe, have become renowned over the past few years for their jaw-dropping live shows and slow-but-steady ascent to Australian country music’s upper echelon.

The Wolfe Brothers will be supported by Pete Cornelius. Pete’s style is difficult to describe but is steeped in heartfelt blues, greasy funk & soul with Americana overtones. His authentic sound and original songwriting is unique to Pete and does not disappoint.

Clinton Hutton has supported The Wolfe Brothers at previous gigs, and we are excited to have him join us for this event. Clinton is a singer-guitarist-songwriter-producer Clinton has a strong reputation for being a quality high energy entertainer.
