You’ll see all four acts!
Hailing from the Blue Mountains near Sydney, award winning Australian solo artist Claude Hay blends slide guitar, sitar, bass and drums to create music that invokes the best of stomping traditional blues, hard rock and booty-shaking funk, all delivered with chops to burn and a vocal range to match.
It would be a generalisation to group 23 year old Alister Turrill with other young roots players. His playing style blends a true form of blues with complex song writing seldom seen in someone so young.
Cass Eager Band
Cass Eager has found herself in a multitude of musical destinations over the years, from the acoustic roots of her 2007 debut ‘Beautiful Day’ to the funky festivities of 2009’s ‘Santa’s Got Soul!’ and now with the release of her new EP ‘Down On My Knees’ Cass continues her journey with Soul always packed in her suitcase.
Chubby Rae & the Elevators
Chubby Rae & the Elevators have been making converts to their vibed-up, good-time rhythm’n’blues since July 2000. Since then, Marisa Quigley (aka Chubby Rae), the 6’2” redheaded soulful powerhouse has been singing the blues like there’s no tomorrow. Their second album, She Gets Unruly won Album of the Year at the 2007 Australian Blues Music Awards and Marisa also took out the Female Vocalist of the Year award.
