folk @ canowindra … 26th august

It’s a privilege to welcome a great new folk combo to folk@canowindra this Sunday, August 26.

Together Chloë and Jason Roweth and Bill Browne are “Battler’s Ballad”. The band’s enthusiasm for playing under-sung Australian traditional and contemporary music is clear in their striking arrangements; the sound is open, fresh, vibrant and inventive. Featuring strong lead vocals, guitar, mandolin, mandola and bouzouki with creative drums and percussion, you can expect a new look at the old, and an old take on the new; you’ll laugh and cry!

Successful independent artists with thousands of performances around Australia & overseas to their names, Chloë and Jason Roweth have released over 20 CDs of original, Australian folk, country and bush music. They have been regularly featured on Ian McNamara’s “Australia All Over” and his compilation CDs. Their CD, “A Voice That Was Still” won the National Film and Sound Archive National Folk Recording Award at the 2010 National Folk Festival. Bill Browne has extensive experience as a musician. He is notable for his fine imaginative work in applying kit drums and percussion to traditional Australian music – particularly in the band “Collector”.

Folk@Canowindra is held monthly at “taste Canowindra” from 4-6pm. Drinks & light meals are available at the venue, and a donation is collected for the feature act. Performers & poets are welcome to perform as part of the open mike.
