Event Details

Folk / Alt Country Duo The McMenamins return to Melbourne to Launch their 4th Studio Album around their two performances at Byron Bay Bluesfest. Since their last release in 2010 they have toured the US twice including performances in Nashville, Austin, Portland and an official showcase at Folk Alliance in Memphis. With their honeyed vocal harmonies and mandolin and violin driven instrumentals their music has been described as 'Beautiful Acoustica' and 'A Delightful Brand of Country Folk'. The McMenamins have won a number of credible songwriting awards and are now touring the country with their highly anticipated album release 'Sand and Stone' - out through MGM on March 8th.

Rolling Stone Magazine called their first release back in 2005 a 'Rock Solid Folk Debut' and they are now taking their sounds to international stages and major festivals as they deliver "Truly Beautiful Music' - (Peter Noble, Bluesfest Director).


Joined by special guest Emma Heeney. 


After parting ways with indie folk band Gorgeous in 2005, Emma began her solo endeavours with the release of critically praised 'Dreaming of Bridges' (MGM) in 2006. Heeney is currently working with a brand new band on a set of catchy new songs. Her second album is due out the end of 2013.
