Mark Wilkinson (NSW) Album Tour

Mark Wilkinson announces ‘Hand Picked, Vol. 3’, the newest instalment in his much loved acoustic series.  Available worldwide from Friday February 12th, it continues the tradition of showcasing his songs laid bare, in their most raw and honest form.  

 It’s a sentiment fans around the world know well, whether they’ve seen Mark on stage, just a man and his guitar, or if they’ve come to discover him through his first two volumes.  The original Hand Picked endeared him to tens of thousands with ‘Middle Ground’ broadcast on television throughout Australia and New Zealand.  Volume two’s ‘Everything to Me’ found millions more with regular radio rotation across the US and Canada.

 Now ‘Hand Picked, Vol. 3’ brings that same intimacy.  Recorded on a farm in the NSW Southern Highlands, each song captured as a live take with one microphone, the natural setting of the surrounds adds a beautifully unique sonic texture.

 To celebrate the release Mark will be returning to the road, crossing open borders after a long absence, sharing songs from the new album along with many other favourites.  Restrictions may mean numbers will be limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Kelly Brouhaha + Gretta Ziller (VIC)

"She's known for having an extraordinarily rare voice" - CLARE BOWDITCH

The South Australian Award Winning Songwriter is one of those artists who's unique style simply cannot be put into a box. 
 
From big blues to soulful country, it is music that is real and raw and vulnerable.
 
"it's just so much fun, that girls got amazing pipes, she sounds like Amy Winehouse - but with more of a soulful edge as opposed to a jazz hook"
- NKECHI ANELE - TRIPLE J ROOTS AND ALL
 

Gretta Ziller (VIC) 

Gretta started her career as an Opera singer and Bagpipe Teacher, her vocal style has changed somewhat since then, she does on the odd occasion incorporate bagpipes into her set ... after all, there aren’t many folks that can sing AND play Long Way to the Top !!

But Gretta isn’t just a one trick pony, If you’ve been foolish enough to think you’ve nailed down her sound then prepare to have the rug pulled out from under you. Ziller's roots span jazz, blues, rock, pop and classical, and that eclecticism is reflected in her songwriting. Her sound may bear the hallmarks of classic Americana music but its essence is far more diverse.

Bluegrass Junction

Bluegrass Junction, South Australia's premier bluegrass band, developed from several lifetime's obsession for old-fashioned, hard-core, three-chord, high-lonesome bluegrass. They have a huge repertoire of bluegrass classics - Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Jimmy Martin, Doyle Lawson, JD Crowe, Jim & Jesse. They don't do alternative, roots, Americana, faux, or pop-grass. And they make no compromises and no apologies for their ‘old school’ approach.

The band consists of ‘South Australian bluegrass royalty’, Trev Warner, Nick Cawthorne, the Bridgland brothers, Geoff and John, while Stephen Loss is a recent addition. Bluegrass Junction was originally formed in 1997. However, the band members go back much earlier. 

Bluegrass Junction are bluegrass veterans. They know where the genre comes from. They respect what makes it work. They play with passion because they love it, which is clearly evident on stage, ensuring a good time for all.
