Owl Mutual Friend are an acoustic folk duo. They play a mixture of sweet harmonies and upbeat tunes to get you tapping your feet. [website].

Spot the Dog: When front-line Australian group Spot the Dog turned off the mic for the last time in late 2004 music lovers were disappointed but conceded that the band had done its bit. But they’re back!! The band has now reconvened for some festival gigs and special occasions.

Spot The Dog’s distinctive style of Australian roots music draws on the deep music traditions of country, folk, rock and soul to create a sound that is earthy and sincere. [website].

Jumping Fences the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk, play a unique mix of original and Latin American songs, bridging the gap between Australian and World music. Their songs, heard from Brisbane factories to concerts in Havana, have evocative lyrics with compelling vocals and rhythm to match. [website]

hope to see you on the night
