Blue Mountains Music Festival - October 2022
We have exciting new additions to the October line-up that include - ThornBird, Harry Manx (Canada), Whitetop Mountaineers (USA) and Kelly Brouhaha with more to be announced.
Vikki Thorn of The Waifs comes to BMMF as her solo project ThornBird. Vikki describes her self-titled debut album by saying, “I wanted to make an album that has its own sway and swagger, untethered from a musical past that was defined by a couple of hippy kids travelling in a camper van and went on to have a hit song and win a couple of ARIAs. It’s a good story and it’s still a great journey. As a musician and a mother I’ve lived a few lives and this collection of songs reflect that.” We are looking forward to hearing ThornBird’s soulful music at BMMF in October.
Harry Manx, beloved Canadian multi-instrumentalist will return to the Blue Mountains Music Festival in October. Known for blending “Indian folk melodies with slide guitar blues” Harry’s sound is unique and we can’t wait to welcome Harry back to Katoomba.
The Whitetop Mountaineers are Martha Spencer and Jackson Cunningham, an old-time country music duo from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Expect to hear old time country duet singing, up-tempo fiddle, clawhammer banjo, bluegrass mandolin and guitar instrumentals with a good dose of high energy Appalachian dancing.
Kelly Brouhaha is an award-winning singer songwriter who plays a blend of Americana Soul. Her latest album Unplugged hit #1 on the AMRAP radio charts amd was the ABC Country Feature Album June 17, 2021. Kelly is also a sought-after session musician, known for lending backing vocals, percussion & guitar to some of Australia’s finest, including Beccy Cole, Lyn Bowtell, Amber Joy Poulton & many more. We are delighted that Kelly will be bringing her big blues and soulful country to BMMF.
