About our artists…
Aaron Pollock is arguably Melbourne’s hottest young blues talent and recently, one of the top eight placing blues artists in the world, at the International Blues Challenge final.
Taking the Australian blues scene by storm, at only 23 years old, Aaron Pollock has arrived on the scene with swing and swagger, picking ragtime and delta blues tunes, as well as writing enchanting and poetic folk tunes, slowly crafting his own unique sound in his own natural time. Just one man, one guitar and a whole lot of blues.
Heathcote born, Bendigo based, folk artist Mariah McCarthy is one of regional Victoria’s most prized possessions. Since living and performing in the big smoke with her old band Deer Prudence for a time, Mariah has returned to her neck of the woods a solo artist and has focused all her energy on launching her own career with gusto. Influenced by the story telling of Dylan and Young, with femininity reminiscent of Joni. This combined with her unique folk style makes for an enchanting, intimate performance from the young artist. 2018 saw the acclaimed launch of Mariah’s debut EP ‘Counting Sheep – don’t miss the exquisite story telling of Mariah McCarthy.
