Sydney NOW presents FOR FOLK SAKE!
~ live original music ~
at Knox St Bar Chippendale
Come and join us on FRIDAY NOVEMBER 29 to be spellbound by three amazing live original music acts for what will be
(AND MOST SPECTACULAR)
FENTON PROJECT X
Featuring Peter V Fenton (Crow, The Tall Grass) Jasper HV Fenton (Decoder Ring, The Red Sun Band and fresh from a stint in The Laurels) combine with the stellar Bradley Christmas from alt-country magicians of song Copperline to bring you a collection of songs that Peter has proclaimed as his latest and greatest work.
All will be revealed on the night, but for now, here’s a throw back to ‘Love Makes Everything Swell’ (one of the sweetest music videos of all time) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alQwFeHs9Ew
And here’s a cheeky vid of Peter with FFS founder Christine Jane and The Johnnys live at The Factory in 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjM_hKKKja8
Julia Johnson plays the same menagerie of traditional folk instruments she has played since she was a child. But the past few years have seen her explode her usual approach to making music and then sew it back together with threads of sonic experimentation. Her voice has been compared to Florence Welch, Joni Mitchell and even a ‘treacherous mountain river’. Julia is a TripleJ Unearthed awarded songwriter who has supported iconic Australian artists including Courtney Barnett, Tim Rogers, Jen Cloher, Bob Evans, and Pete Murray as well as performing at folk and contemporary music festivals such as National Folk Festival and Groovin The Moo.
“Love the playful guitar plucking and that lilt of Julia’s voice” – Zan Rowe, DoubleJ
“This confidently straddles the lines between slightly folk-tinged, rustic sounds and a bright-eyed pop sensibility, with good lyrics to boot.” Al Newstead, TripleJ
