Blue Mountains Music Festival Second Artist Announcement!

Mick Thomas & The Roving Commission
Second Artist Announcement: Neko Case (USA), Mick Thomas & The Roving Commission, William Crighton, Stiff Gins, Thando, STAV, Jo Davie, The Maes, Chloe & Jason Roweth.

With tickets on sale now for the 2019 Blue Mountains Music Festival we have an incredible second announcement of artists and are thrilled to confirm that powerhouse singer-songwriter Neko Case will perform. Case has just released her latest album Hell-On, best described as:

“A force of nature, an act of a mercurial, forgotten god, Hell-On is a record sealed by fire, filled with love and rage and dangers that might lay waste to everything at any moment.”(Andrea Pitzer)

We can’t wait!

Raconteur, troubadour, balladeer and poet, Mick Thomas, best known as the song master of pub-rock icons Weddings Parties Anything makes his BMMF debut in 2019. Mick will be joined by his band The Roving Commission, featuring Squeezebox Wally on Piano Accordion and a rotating schedule of talented performers to keep the party alive with Mick’s unique mix of folk, roots and country.

2019 sees the return of BMMF favourite William Crighton. Hot on the heels of his ‘Trigger of Truth’ tour, performances at the Cambridge Folk Festival and the release of his highly acclaimed second album, Empire. Crighton is a talented lyricist and storyteller with a unique and commanding performance style.

Stiff Gins are one of Australia’s best known and most loved Indigenous acts. Nardi Simpson and Kaleena Briggs combine stunning harmonies with a wicked sense of humour to transport listeners to a world of joy, spirit and song. 2019 will mark Stiff Gins 20th anniversary and we are delighted that they will be part of the 24th Annual Festival.

BMMF 2019 will host many emerging artists including - Zimbabwean born and Melbourne based singer-songwriter Thando, who is looking toward solidifying her status as Australia’s newest first lady of R&B. Also, the 2018 Folk Alliance Young Artists of the Year - soulful and honest singer-songwriter STAV who writes and performs thoughtful and uplifting songs in English, French and Hebrew and runner-up Jo Davie, graced with jazz sensibilities, exceptional vocal technique and a four-octave range. We also welcome back Melbourne duo (and the 2016 FAA winners), The Maes - sisters Maggie (banjo, guitar and vocals) and Elsie Rigby (violin and vocals).

Rounding out the second artist announcement are Chloe & Jason Roweth, who present vibrant arrangements of new and old traditional Australian ballads and work songs, early country music, original music, poetry, yarns, and dance tunes. 

Early Bird Tickets for the 24th Annual Blue Mountains Music Festival are on sale until December 15th 2018 via the website.
