20th October 2017  Devil Goat Family String Band

Devil Goat Family String Band are a five piece band who play high-energy bluegrass and fiddle tunes like they’ve never gone out of style. Their contemporary arrangements of traditional tunes utilize the twin fiddles of Kate Conner and Sophia Dunn, banjo of Gus Macmillan, Guitar of Luke Byrnes and Double Bass of Fran Evans. They traverse the old timey and new-grass traditions, and generate a live energy that is truly infectious to music-lovers of all generations.

First formed in 2005, this most recent new line up builds on the success and recognition they developed in the noughties, when they released their highly acclaimed CD Fate of a Bachelor (available on iTunes). They have become favorites at festivals such as Queensland’s Woodford Folk Festival, Victoria Night Markets 2016, Moomba 2017, and featured on ABC and PBS Radio as well performing everywhere from pubs, parties, corporate events, house concerts, weddings, bush dances, school fetes and bingo nights.

And
Eddie Cole

‘Introducing the Eddie Cole Songbook’ is a four track EP from Victorian singer songwriter
and guitarist Eddie Cole released in October 2017.
‘Swept Away’ is the opening track. A rocking 6/8 piece which has overtones of Jeff Buckley, it pulses with the with the joy and sorrow which life unceasingly throws at us.
‘Count the Cost’ is a heart breaker about the shattering of love’s illusion.
‘Wild is the wind’ is a sparse vocal guitar track with Wuthering Heights as it’s underlying theme.
‘Settle your Debt’ is a pulsing blues riff on the theme of everything having a cost and everything requiring recompence.
‘Introducing the Eddie Cole Songbook’, as the title suggests, it is an entry point to a larger body of work, ranging from 2010’s ABC Radio National album of the week ‘Groove Eddy Overload’ to last years ‘The Yellingbo Recordings’.
