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!
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.
