-NEXT UPCOMING SHOW-



A Night of

Australiana:

THE WEEPING WILLOWS,

and

DANIEL CHAMPAGNE

Andy Wrigglesworth and Laura Coates are a couple of old souls, steeped in bluegrass tradition and draped in gothic Americana imagery.  That kind of description might make them sound like some carefully contrived concept-act, but there’s something truly different about The Weeping Willows: they really mean it.


Just like their old‐timey forefathers, Laura and Andy see themselves as simply contributors.  They are cogs in the wheel; part of a long music tradition that emerged years before their own existence and will survive them by hook or by crook.  The old songs they sing are plucked from the canon, the new ones they write are simply added to the book.  The origin of each track is almost irrelevant, as all are performed with an authenticity and vibrancy befitting this most dignified and welcoming genre.  A Weeping Willows performance, whether live on location or caught on tape, will always delight.

DANIEL CHAMPAGNE is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for making festivals buzz, holding crowds in his palm, dropping jaws and breaking guitars wherever he goes. Champagne often sounds closer to a three-piece band than the 21 year old singer songwriter guitarist now established as a renowned performer on both the Australian and international stage.


A reputation on his instrument of choice firmly established, recent descriptions of the live show state ‘Proof that the acoustic guitars only limit is our imagination’ (Lloyd Spiegel) and ‘The best young guitarist in Australia’ (IFC President). Daniel’s playing runs from the instrument's soul to way outside of its box. His Signature explosion of 2-hand tapping, body percussion and fiery runs in a swag of different tunings can be expected.


The same versatility can be said for his writing and material. Pulling off sets from intense blues-driven crowd pleasers, experimental compositions, bags of originals to century old Folk and Blues Songs delivered with an exiting youthful flair. As for the voice…”He sings with a wonderfully pronounced and proud Aussie twang, howling here, hushed there, always confident, fearless and knowing”
