Presented by: Highland FM 107.1 – MusicNSW – Southern Tablelands Arts – Southern Highland News
This great line up of original talent from the region includes:
TWO IF BY SEA – Artist of the Month:
Two If By Sea, powered by the wonderful virtuosic sounds of Rachel Johnston and Trent Arkleysmith, perform a mix of folk, bluegrass and original acoustic music. A touch of swing, a tasty combination of guitar, mandolins, cellos and sweet harmonies provide the unique flavour to this duo.
Two If By Sea continue to delight audiences with their exhilarating rhythm and mixture of original and traditional tunes drawn from Celtic, Scandinavian, American and Eastern European styles.
SPEED DIAL – Artist of the Month:
Having heard the band Speed Dial, you’ll agree that their sound mixes modern elements akin to the Arctic Monkeys and Phoebe Bridgers while staying true to the legends like The Beatles, Bowie, and Led Zeppelin. Although these influences, Speed Dial, whose band members include Indianna Gregg, Lauren Vella, Rhys Gardiner, Will Preddey, Wyatt Hodges, Emerson Williams and Olivia Bova has produced its own unique sound which is identifiably the sound of Speed Dial.
With new music being released, the band’s wide appeal will continue to elevate Speed Dial’s popularity to an audience favourite.
THE WATER RUNNERS – Artist of the Month:
The Water Runners have built a solid reputation as songwriters and performers. Their original bluegrass-infused Australian folk/roots music with its four-part harmony story-telling has engaged and moved audiences around Australia.
The band is a mix of experienced musicians John Littrich (guitar/vocals) and Neil McCann (banjo/mandolin/vocals, James Turk (double-bass), Danita Harris (violin) and Dom Littrich (percussion).
Guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, double bass and percussion combine with tight harmonies, The Water Runners take you on a musical journey with stories of back roads and life experiences. Join them and enjoy the ride!
