The Little Quirks

 

 

They say something special happens when family members sing together. The Central Coast Little Quirks band are doing a lot to substantiate that theory. Sisters Abbey and Mia Toole and cousins Jaymi and Alex, form the Little Quirks band. A lively brand of folk pop with great rhythms and soaring harmonies and it’s hard not to sing along with them.

Last year the Little Quirks band released two extremely catchy singles, ‘I Told You So’ and ‘Crumbled’, the latter already clocking up nearly 1 million streams on Spotify. From busking at farmers markets the band quickly leap frogged onto stages supporting the likes of Tim Rogers, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Alex the Astronaut, Jack River, Busby Marou, and Xavier Rudd. Their live show is staggeringly energetic for a young folk band. It moves from epic to sweet in a heartbeat drawing comparisons to the likes of Mumford And Sons, The Lumineers and First Aid Kit. The three work together in a lively fashion with mandolin, guitar, bass, drums and blissful harmony. The recent addition of cousin (of course!) Alex on bass completes a potent lineup that will delight one and all at Port Fairy Folk Festival, Mountain Sounds and National Folk Festival in the coming months.

The Acoustic Picnic Presents:

Broderick Smith 

After decades on the Australian music stage Brod has a long list of credits to his name most notably as chief dog for Australian legends, “The Dingoes”.  He is considered to be a legend by his legion of fans, a consummate performer by many of his contemporaries and an elder statesman by the new guard of fellow musicians. In 2018, Broderick releases his brand new album ‘Man Out of Time released simultaneously with his very first book. A study in vivid storytelling and mature restraint, Man Out of Time arrives 10 years since Brod’s last solo album, Unknown Country, and eight since Tracks, his brief return to his legendary ‘70s band, the Dingoes. It’s fair to say that much has changed, not least in the spellbinding tone that can only come with the patience of a seasoned master craftsman. And after all these years, there is still nobody to compare with Broderick Smith. In a special intimate performance Broderick plays The Acoustic Picnic accompanied by Richard Tankard and this will be something very special  

With Special Guests:

Dubbed ‘The Rhythm King’ AKoVA brings an inspiring vibe wherever he performs. He’s a natural showman and has been recognised for his song-writing talent by MusicOz, finalist in 2012 and 2013 and Unsigned Only song-writing finalist.

 Psycho Zydeco

Cajun Blues from the Deep South 

 

Sydney based Psycho Zydeco, or the Psychos as their fans affectionately dub them, have established themselves at the forefront of the energetic uplifting style of music known as Zydeco. This music was originally born in the swamplands and bayou area of Louisiana's Deep South. The band's earthy blend of traditional Cajun, Blues and Swamp music produce a heady mix of their Australian brand of Zydeco. Driving washboard, drums, guitar, saxophone and the odd industrial sized triangle combine with some amazing accordion playing creating music that will make you feel so good you will want to grab a washboard and get up on stage and start scraping.Through some 20 years Psycho Zydeco have released several albums, toured internationally and performed at festivals big and small, and generally helped spread the beauty of the zydeco sound.
