Beth and the Brave: perform beautiful alternative folk tunes with themes of social and environmental justice. Led by Beth’s soaring voice, the trio blends rich vocal arrangements with intricate guitar, banjo, double bass, violin and flute. On the night they’ll be launching the first single off their upcoming live album, available on the night in a limited release of 50 in beautiful hand-made cases.
Andy Newman: finds the guitar an instrument of unrefined beauty and has set about honing a musical style that incorporates his guitar as an identity. Combining this with impressive vocals, his music ranges from soothing to emotional to daring.
Zee: US-born, Melbourne-based singer/songwriter and poet dazzles with her spoken word and guitar
