These artists performed at Festival 2018 – performers for 2019 will be announced around October 2018
Hat Fitz & Cara
Hat Fitz & Cara have their new album, their fourth, just mastered. Titled After The Rain, the album was engineered, produced and mixed by the well respected Govinda Doyle who was behind Big Jet Plane by Angus and Julia Stones.
Their latest album Do Tell was three months standing at #1 in the Australian Blues & Roots charts and entering the Amazon charts at #17 in Europe. Do Tell was voted best female vocal in 2015 Chain Awards Australia. Their Do Tell album was professionally engineered and produced by Australias well admired Jeff Lang. Also Wiley Ways 2014's winners of Blues album Chain Awards Australia and UK Spiral Earth Folk award winners.
This dynamic two-piece is a unique combination that has skillfully combined their hill style Gospel blues with old-timey flavourings. Stripped down to just voices, guitar and vintage drums, Hat Fitz & Cara embellish impeccable rootsy originals with powerful and soulful vocals reminiscent of a time once forgotten.
They have been referred to as festival favourites globally as it is not just a live show of their repertoire they share but a personal invitation into the parody of their lives on the road together that often has their audiences in tears of laughter.
They were semi-finals at 2015's International Memphis Blues Challenge USA and proud to represent the South East Queensland Blues Association.
They have been known to pack more energy, emotion and sheer musical exuberance into one song than most manage in a whole career. Their music comes straight from the heart with a sound that is full of inherent realism, making their live shows visually electric.
