Fri 18th Aug ‘Harry Hookey’ 7pm $20 pre-sale $25 at the door ( trybooking.com)

From busking on the streets of Melbourne to playing strip clubs in New Orleans to Festivals in Nashville and Tamworth, Hookey exudes a musical resemblance to a young Bob Dylan, who he cites as one of his main influences. Described quite accurately as a reflection of various
tastes mixed together, “somewhere between James Taylor and Nirvana” by the man himself, Hookey’s style is a unique blend of alternative
folk, punctuated by heavier punk and rock influences.
Harry first started performing in rural Victoria as the Hookey Family Band with his three brothers. Harry was invited to showcase his music at
the 2011 Americana Festival in Nashville TN, In 2012, Harry won the US based International Songwriter’s Competition in the unsigned category
for Misdiagnosed.
All the tracks on Sometimes reflect this huge transition in Harry’s life.“I gave up my job at a law firm, & strayed from the path that was laid out
for me. I took off my tie, grew out my hair, and started singing folk songs. All these songs are about searching. Not that I really knew what for, I
never really knew what I was getting myself in to, but I certainly knew what I was escaping,” says Harry.

Sat 19th Aug ‘Chris Wilson band’ 8.30pm-11.30pm $10 Entry

CHRIS WILSON has been an essential part of blues and rock music in Australia since taking the stage with the Sole Twisters thirty years ago.
Stints with Harum Scarum and Paul Kelly and the Coloured Girls followed, and the end of the 80s saw Wilson as one of our finest vocalists,
harmonica players and songwriters, fronting the superb Crown of Thorns.
His instrumental gifts have oft been utilised on recordings by the likes of James Reyne, Hunters and Collectors, Vika and Linda, Renee Geyer,
Archie Roach, X, Deb Conway and Ross Hannaford’s Dianna Kiss. Chris has enjoyed the company of Australia’s best musicians on stage and in
the studio when realising his own visions in song. Chris’ unmistakeable voice and harmonica can be heard in the opening scenes of the smash
hit Australian film The Dressmaker, on which he collaborated with long-time cohort Shane O’Mara.
Chris has performed in the U.S. and Canada at SXSW and two Folk Alliance Conferences. He has won the respect of many overseas artists,
among these Joe Henry, Charlie Musselwhite and Tony Joe White. Bob Dylan once made a special trip backstage to shake Chris’ hand after a
show together in 1992!
Chris has appeared at every major Australian festival and his performances, filled as they are with his own brand of sensuality and the dynamic
power that leaves his audiences so satisfied, are always a highlight. Chris’ stage presence, voice and talent are all as big as the country he lives
in. CHRIS WILSON is a master of his craft.
