Six more artists announced to heat up the Coldstream
THIS October's Surfing the Coldstream Festival has added six local artists and three visiting acts to the line up.
First up is Microwave Jenny, a husband and wife team who describe their music as pop/folk/love and who have built a following from the ground up through solid touring. The festival will see this endearing couple bring their eclectic mix of pop and smooth electric sounds, and cheeky, enticing lyrics to Yamba for the first time.
Next, The Mouldy Lovers are a 7-piece concoction of ska, folk, punk and dub, just brimming like an overflowing pot of delicious bombastic laksa. Making a welcome return to Surfing the Coldstream Festival, their raucous live performance style is all impassioned swagger and vitriol forged on the musical melting pot streets of Brisbane's West End.
Hailing from Bellingen, the Clarence welcomes The Mid-North, whose sound is a melding of old-time mountain music and bluegrass, featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, double bass, guitar and four-part harmonies.
The committee is especially delighted to announce the addition of Austin King's energetic and powerful G'Day Africa drumming workshop and performance.
Local gringos The Fawlty Dogs present their refreshing jazz, Latin and funk influences for their first festival audience, while local sonic shapers Nocturnal Tapes wrap up the Saturday program with deep dance grooves and space filtered synth tones at the official after party.
For anyone who missed their unique performance at our launch party in April, the Psychedelic Goldfish will perform their album Postcards joined by a host of local musicians. And completing the local line up, on Sunday October 18, Grace Hickey and Flipside play at The Maclean Hotel, and Siobhan Corcoran turns in a set at Yamba's Leche Café.
