Another two great singer/songwriters, folksters, top-shelf blues & roots artists, Justin Bernasconi and Kelly Brouhaha will each make their Blues Tram debut in September. A classy musical journey is guaranteed and this is a gig not to be missed.
Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage W Class tram, while being serenaded by two great acts:
Kelly Brouhaha .:
Roots warrior Kelly Brouhaha is all about the “Feelgood” side of life. An award winning songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with achingly soulful vocals, her uplifting music is more than a simple band-aid to the blues.
“The Brouhaha has a gorgeous, powerful, dare-we-say Adele-esque voice, and her new song Don’t Have To Write it Down is a fine vehicle for it” – RIP IT UP
Once upon a time this traveller had a full-time job, a marriage and a mortgage that was sucking the life out of her to the point that she’d randomly pass out. Miserable, anxious and stressed out – she chose a different path , bought a van and created a life doing what she loves.
“…[her music] has the ability to lift you up and put you in a happy place” – MUSIC SA
Since 2009 The Brouhaha and Margo (her faithful Tarago) have travelled Australia’s East Coast extensively playing roughly 200 shows per year. With a string of supports including Clare Bowditch, Mia Dyson, Liz Stringer, Sarah Mcleod, Jen Cloher and Wes Carr – Kel spreads an infectious positivity with her comedic stage show, superstar girl band (featuring Ali Foster, Emily A Smith, Jenna Bonavita, Tania Savelli and Melanie Watts) and their soul inspired roots tunes.
Named as ‘One of this country’s most interesting guitar talents’ by Australian Guitar magazine, Justin Bernasconi is a rarity among guitarists and songwriters. Straddling styles and sounds from the Delta Blues, Appalachian Bluegrass, English Folk and all stops in between, his highly original tunes are infused with exciting and soulful guitar playing.
He will be launching his new album Barefoot Wonderland throughout 2017.
