Spotted Mallard http://www.moshtix.com.au Moshtix Event List en-au Copyright 2007 Thu, 23 Nov 2017 The Weeping Willows & Matt Joe Gow (Free Entry) http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/the-weeping-willows-matt-joe-gow-free-entry/99317?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Melbourne's own Country-Folk duo, The Weeping Willows team up with 2017 The Age Music Victoria Award nominee, Matt Joe Gow, for a night of soulful Alt-Country and Americana! Playing Times

Matt Jow Gow - 8:30pm

Weeping Willows - 9:30pm

The Weeping Willows are a couple of old souls, steeped in Bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, God and The Devil, murder and decay. Real music.

Very few artists wield so much charisma that they can sell you just about anything before you've realised what's happened. Matt Joe Gow has the charisma to be one of those artists - but he isn't. Having performed around Australia from The Sydney Opera House to The Queenscliff Festival's Blues Train, Matt prefers to concentrate on the conviction. You don't have to listen to more than thirty seconds of his new album 'Seven Years' to appreciate that. And that voice. Rich, resonant. A baritone cloak of many shades and shadows. A songwriter whose swagger has taken him from the dusty influences of Townes Van Zandt, Ryan Adams and others, to the swirling urban chime of electric, ambient pop . . . and now, back again.

The Band Who Knew Too Much http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/the-band-who-knew-too-much/99295?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Exciting Australian songs propelled by energetic jazz-like woodchop rhythm! Add some strong local lyric, with gang vocal delivery and their unique sound is complete. ** NOTE PLEASE - LATER 5PM START **

The Band Who Knew Too Much are a bona-fide foolproof floor-packing band. For over a decade they have branded their sound around the world; a highly energetic act that is at home singing on the festival stage, busking unplugged on the city streets, or anything inbetween!

Washboard/Accordion driven anthems about spending the rent, hard rubbish nights and of course, the immortal BEER O'CLOCK!! It's happy hour, energetic party music for everyone.

The Band Who Knew Too Much embrace the brattiness and flaws of everyday life and turn them into material for an intoxicating party of endless energy- like being stuck in the exact moment of winning the AFL premiership cup and feeling the pain and tears of every losing season drift off your shoulders and disappear in the air.'

' After 15 years of proving it, The Band Who Knew Too Much are a truly classic Australian band with an undying spirit for the complete abandon and joy we feel when we throw our fines out the window, slam the rent down on the bar and decide there's no tomorrow- all night long.'

The Band Who Knew Too Much only know one way, and that's UP! An energy packed, floor jumping music experience that can inspire a mosh, a shimmy, a pogo or even an impromptu Charleston. Whatever your vice, The Band Who Knew Too Much can scratch the itch.

Hello Tut Tut http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/hello-tut-tut/99069?ref=RSS_rss_mallard A world music dance party with Hello Tut Tut, Baltic Bar Mitzvah, Grandmaster Monk, Ungus Ungus Ungus and special guests. Rhino's Daydream is Hello Tut Tut's 3rd single release in anticipation of their debut album and is an exploration of the band's passion for African music. Recorded in Rolling Stock Recording Rooms and co-produced by Myles Mumford (Vulgar Grad, The Scrims), the track features Amadou Sousou (Senegambian Jazz Band) on the Kora and explores the intersection between West-Africa and East-Europe in the heart of Melbourne.

Joining Hello Tut Tut for the night are the Newcastle based Balkan/Klezmer champions Baltic Bar Mitzvah and middle eastern fusion duo GrandMasterMonk. The Soundsytem of Ungus Ungus Ungus will blend the night together and keep the dance floor alive with their electro swing circus dance tunes.

This party will take you on an intercontinental journey, exploring sounds and traditions from Africa to The Middle East, up through the Balkans and Baltics into central Europe, with a cheeky dose of Latin and some very contemporary feels for good measure. This is sure to be a night of wild wailing melodies and enlivening rhythms and grooves; truly a night to celebrate Melbourne's cultural diversity and an opportunity let go on a dance floor that feels like home.

Sam Outlaw with Courtney Marie Andrews http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/sam-outlaw-with-courtney-marie-andrews/99090?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Love Police Touring are delighted to announce the return of Sam Outlaw to Australia who along with special guest Courtney Marie Andrews will play a handful of exclusive shows in Sydney and Melbourne this December. Sam Outlaw, who has graced our shores and stages twice before, will this time bring with him a brilliant new album "Tenderheart" which was released in April of this year. The 13-track collection of originals was met with rave reviews including The Australian newspaper who said in it's 4.5 Star review "On his second album the 34-year-old delivers a gem infused with the musical history of his adopted city, as well as Nashville, Austin and every dance hall and honky tonk in between." while Rolling Stone Magazine Australia gave it a 4 Star review and called "Tenderheart" "an assured step forward for this rising country star."

After being embraced and shown the love by audiences in Australia on her tour here earlier this year the amazingly talented Courtney Marie Andrews is coming back. At just 16 years old, Andrews left home in Arizona for her first tour. Travelling up and down the West Coast of the USA, busking and playing anywhere that would have her. Soon after, she took a Greyhound bus four nights straight from Phoenix to New York to do the same on the East Coast. Her 2016 album "Honest Life", the follow up to the stellar "On My Page," has been praised by media universally with the UK's Daily Telegraph saying "the poetic economy of her lyrics is right up there with such masters of the country vignette as Guy Clark and John Prine...a truly substantial talent." That's some big associations right there.

This December the future of Americana will be shown to be in the excellent hands of Sam Outlaw and Courtney Marie Andrews. Do not miss it.

Hot Potato Band http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/hot-potato-band/100228?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Anything could happen! Known to cause a severe case of happy fever, this 11 piece brass band is sure to put a smile on your face in an incredibly unique live show.  

 

The Hot Potato Band have become one of the most celebrated street and stage performing bands in Australia. From large scale festivals to intimate venues they have successfully captured the energy and interaction of their street performances and perfectly integrated it into their on stage show. Beware, as they make you the centre of their performance... literally!

The bands unique sound comes from the absence of a single drum kit, bass guitar and electrified instruments. Three drummers create synchronised grooves on what would be a deconstructed drum kit. The bass lines are covered by an enormous, lung busting Sousaphone. Two baritone saxophones mimic the part of a rhythm guitar and the bands huge array of horns cover catchy chorus lines and provide a beautiful harmonic cloud for Ben (the vocalist) to float above.

Spoonful Christmas Show http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/spoonful-christmas-show/99643?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Get on down for the annual Spoonful Christmas bash! 2014 marked Spoonful's 21st year together as a band and now they are celebrated regulars across the live music scene.

With their sound wholeheartedly embracing rhythm and blues, soul and rock'n roll Spoonful, featuring; Paul Winstanley on Bass, David Lord on Keys/Vocals/Harp and brothers Andre and Kit Warhurst on guitar/vocals and drums/vocals respectively, now mine their wealth of collective experience to create something that is uniquely their own and much loved by their legion of fans.

Formed originally as a fun, party offshoot of Manic Suede in the early 90's, Spoonful happily ticked along in the background while members concentrated their individual efforts on various related and unrelated projects. Andre fronted Silver Night Drive, accepted numerous "guitar slinger" adventures, played slide guitar on Jet's debut record and collaborated with Kram on the Spiderbait frontman's solo project. Tellingly, several years ago Andre knocked back an offer of a stint in Jimmy Barnes' band to instead "do my own thing". (He's still deciding if that was smart or not.) Kit is part of seminal Melbourne band Rocket Science as well as being music composer/producer for various film/TV projects and Dave played keys in The Rectifiers. Paul moonlights as a fireman so he's often distracted by the need to save random peoples' lives. Whatever.

With Spoonful serving as something of a musical "home base" amid their various individual musical travels, it is probably that lack of a focused spotlight that has led to the bands remarkable longevity.

The number of people who have witnessed a Spoonful live show over the years is nothing short of amazing. That they come back again & again is testament to the songs, the sounds, the authenticity of the bands shtick and the flat out great performances. Music fans love them. Other musicians, their contemporaries, love them too. Significantly, Spoonful have consistently made live music venues and promoters very happy! Over their incredible 21 year journey, they have developed into a rusted on gem of the Melbourne music scene.

Now celebrating the launch of their fourth album "Indian Tiger Waterfall", Spoonful are in the kind of shape most other bands can only dream of.

For Spoonful, the thrill hasn't gone. In fact it just keeps getting better.

Michael Dwyer, The Age July 2014: "The band's taut and smoldering attack can sound like Cream, Traffic or Booker T & the MG's. When Spoonful takes the stage, it's so cool that people in the crowd elbow each other."

With special guest DJ Max Crawdaddy

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin, UK) + Joe Filisko & Eric Noden (USA) http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/edgelarks-phillip-henry-hannah-martin-uk-joe-filisko-eric-noden-usa/99735?ref=RSS_rss_mallard A very special double-bill from these two extraordinary international artists, fresh from Woodford Folk Festival. Edgelarks ~ Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin (UK) :

Edgelarks fly in on the tailwind of BBC award winning duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin. The new band name comes with a new project, taking the roots of their previous work - British traditional musics, Indian classical slide guitar, stomping roots beatbox harmonica party; adds a strong stem of original writing; and runs wilder with each gig.
The new album, also called "Edgelarks", concerns the liminal: borders, crossroads, travellers, refugees, twilight, dawn. In large part written during their travels in Australia in 2016 (Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival, Fairbridge Folk Festival), the album takes inspiration from new horizons, new stories, spacious landscapes. A key song, "Signposts", was directly written as a celebration of their time in Tasmania; a travellers anthem imbued with a touch of homesickness, but alight with the excitement of adventure, and the special connections music can make with others, even when you are a world away from home.
Edgelarks takes the idea that thresholds, despite often being places of marginalisation, are also places of change - and therefore places of hope. That in the end, we have far more in common than things that divide us, because we are all liminal - we are all just passing through.

"Best Folk Duo" : BBC Awards.

"Imaginative dobro, guitar and harmonica work ... evocative fiddle and banjo playing and enchanting vocals." 4.5 stars ~ Tony Hillier, The Australian

"Combination of virtuosity, intensity and charisma... Subtle, atmospheric, bravely original." : The Guardian

"A modern classic... one of the best duos on the planet." - BBC

Joe Filisko & Eric Noden (Chicago, USA)

Ultra-rhythmic and highly entertaining, this Chicago blues duo creates a very big sound with just a harmonica, a guitar and vocal harmonies reminiscent of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. Mining rag time, acoustic blues, old time country, jug band music and early jazz, Filisko and Noden are expert practitioners of styles that defined the blues in its earliest days, channeling the spirit of masters like Sonny Boy Williamson and Big Bill Broonzy, taking their traditions in vibrant new directions. With jaw-dropping virtuosity and hilarious story-telling, Filisko and Noden have a synergy born of many years on the road, taking their toe-tapping music across the world.
They return to Australia in January 2018 to perform at Woodford Folk Festival plus some very special shows. Unmissable!

Molsky's Mountain Drifters http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/molskys-mountain-drifters/99314?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Molsky's Mountain Drifters - Tradition steeped in possibility. Bruce Molsky, "one of America's premier fiddling talents" (Mother Jones) and Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song is delighted to present his new group already on tour in the US. Bruce's previous collaborations, with Anonymous 4, 1865 - Songs of Hope and Home from the American Civil War, was released to rave reviews and was on the top 10 Billboard charts for weeks. He is also a special guest on legendary guitarist Mark Knopfler's latest CD, Tracker and is working on his 3rd album with Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny's supergroup Mozaik. You can also hear Bruce on BBC TV Transatlantic Sessions singing with Joan Osborne, Julie Fowlis and fiddling with Scottish legend Aly Bain and America's great dobroist Jerry Douglas. Bruce is also Berklee College of Music's Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Program.

Allison de Groot combines wide ranging virtuosity and passion for old-time music. With her own bands The Goodbye Girls and Oh My Darling, she has played Trafalgar Square in London, Newport Folk Festival, Stockholm Folk Festival, the Winnipeg Folk Festival, and Tønder Festival in Denmark. Like Bruce, Allison loves collaborating and bringing new ideas to old music, and brings a fresh approach to the trio.

Boston-based Stash Wyslouch is one of bluegrass's great young genre-bending pioneers. He got his start as a guitarist in metal bands before immersing himself in roots music as a member of The Deadly Gentlemen. Stash is a veteran festival performer, having played at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Rockygrass, Merlefest, Savannah Music Festival and others. Coming over from the punk-metal world, Stash brings great sensitivity and real emotion to the trio, plus some superb guitar and vocal chops.

Shame is lush and varied aided by the production and recording talents of Mandolin Orange's Andrew Marlin. Musically inspired in equal parts by John Hartford and Courtney Barnett, Baiman's influences are myriad, however years spent playing traditional music shine through in the albums firmly rooted sound.   One Up, Two Down One Up, Two Down hail from three countries joined by the Pacific Ocean. Fiddler George Jackson and guitarist Daniel Watkins, from New Zealand and Australia respectively together with North Carolinian double bassist Andrew Small, they bring together raw old-time groove, bluegrass dexterity, and folk storytelling.

PETER ROWAN BLUEGRASS BAND http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/peter-rowan-bluegrass-band/99652?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Peter Rowan, “The Voice of Bluegrass”, returns to Australia with his Bluegrass Band, featuring Patrick Sauber (banjo, mandolin), Blaine Sprouse (fiddle), and Paul Knight (double bass). "Rowan is one of the greatest and most important of all the bluegrass players. He understands what he calls "the joy" of bluegrass and acoustic music" (Sydney Morning Herald). His beautiful singing is of the classic “high-lonesome” - the defining style of all bluegrass vocalists. "Rowan is one of the greatest and most important of all the bluegrass players. He understands what he calls "the joy" of bluegrass and acoustic music, and, with wonderful artlessness, he insists that he is coming to Australia to do nothing more than "be a singer of songs and a player of tunes". His admirers know he will be much, much more than that." - Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald

Renowned US Bluegrass singer-songwriter, guitarist, and Grammy winner, Peter Rowan, "The Voice of Bluegrass", returns to Australia with his Bluegrass Band, featuring Patrick Sauber (banjo, mandolin), Blaine Sprouse (fiddle), and Paul Knight (double bass).

Rowan is a true legend of American Bluegrass, a direct link to the father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe, having been lead-singer in Monroe's band in the '60s. Following his time with Monroe went on to be part of such iconic and revolutionary bands as Seatrain, Earth Opera, Muleskinner, and Old & In The Way, with the likes of Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Richard Greene, and Clarence White (from The Byrds).

Since then he has released numerous albums of mostly original songs, and has performed and recorded with Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Gillian Welch, Tim O'Brien, Bela Fleck, Tony Rice, Del McCoury, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Flaco Jimenez, Peter Tosh & many more. Today at the age of 75, he is still touring constantly, writing new songs, and making new recordings, including his latest, 'My Aloha', recorded in Honolulu, with leading Hawaiian musicians, and his next project, a tribute to The Stanley Bros, due for release in early 2018.

Rowan has demonstrated himself to be an artist of unusual depth and imagination, experimenting with other influences, while never losing track of the deep roots and musical purity that are integral to his presence. He is a singer and songwriter without equal, a multi-instrumentalist and accomplished guitarist. His beautiful singing is of the classic "high-lonesome", borrowed by Monroe from the Appalachian ballad singers, and which became the defining style of all bluegrass vocalists. The spirit of Bill Monroe lives on in the old and new music he and his band will bring to Australian audiences on this tour.

ANDY IRVINE & LUKE PLUMB http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/andy-irvine-luke-plumb/99733?ref=RSS_rss_mallard The collaboration between the legendary Andy Irvine (Sweeney's Men/Patrick Street/Planxy/Mozaik) and mandolin maestro Luke Plumb (Shooglenifty) is one of the most thrilling in recent times, resulting in the wonderful 2017 studio album Precious Heroes. "We were moved to make an album, which in part, recognised some of the great, largely unknown, men and women who shaped working class and cultural roots. Through the hardship, sadness, adversity and tragedy, triumphant stories remain. We share the history and continue to share the hope. This album is dedicated to those precious heroes". Andy Irvine and Luke Plumb

Andy has been "one of the towering talents on the international folk scene" (Sydney Morning Herald) for more than 40 years, while Luke has established a reputation as a driving force in acoustic music on the global stage.

These two masters of their craft will be appearing at The Spotted Mallard on Thursday March 15, 2018 in their only Melbourne show.

ANDY IRVINE
Andy Irvine is a true legend of the Irish music scene; when barely twenty one and already an ardent follower of Woody Guthrie, Andy arrived in Dublin from London in the early sixties to immerse himself in a whole new world of folk and traditional music Dublin style. By the end of the decade he had made an album with his first serious band Sweeney's Men, travelled in Bulgaria and Romania and on returning to Dublin with three other like-minded young musicians formed the legendary band Planxty.

The band's first album was released in 1972 and is widely acknowledged one of the most important albums ever released in the genre. Planxty went on to record another six brilliant albums, the individual members on to form numerous other well-known bands, and in Andy's case Patrick Street and Mozaik.

LUKE PLUMB
Through his work with Shooglenifty, Peter Daffy and as a Solo performer, Luke Plumb has established a reputation as a driving force in acoustic music on the global stage. With eleven albums and numerous other guest appearances under his belt, Luke has cemented his standing in the world of mandolin players. But he is equally at home playing melody on the banjo or accompanying on the bouzouki and guitar. His skills as a session musician have seen Luke playing with musicians from many genres around the world!
