The Maes (formerly The Mae Trio) are a multi-award winning band of three of the Australian folk scene’s most talented young songwriters, singers and performers. Sisters Maggie and Elsie Rigby (The Rainmakers) are joined by cellist Monique Clare.

They perform an insightful collection of original songs arranged for ukulele, banjo, guitar, fiddle, cello, bass and superb three part vocal harmony.

Their latest album, Take Care Take Cover, was released in April last year and saw them win Best Folk Roots album at The Age Music Victoria Awards.

Take Care Take Cover has earned stellar reviews – ” a simply superb sophomore album.” The Australian *****, and follows on from their debut album, Housewarming, which earned them the Folk Alliance Australia Youth Award and NFSA Folk Recording of the Year.

“…underscores the ever growing potential these girls have to capture a truly international stage.” – Folk Radio UK

“The Mae Trio songs are powerful, the vocal harmonies soar, and their own instrumental prowess is impressive” – Penguin Eggs

“Located at a crossroads where Australian, English and American folk traditions meet, The Mae Trio are in the midst of creating something unique and very much their own” – Songlines

Joe Man Murphy is an Irish born Folk and Roots singer-songwriter and artist.

His music consists of foot stomping Celtic, Roots and Folk mixed together in a melting pot of energy and musical flair. With vibrant influences from Paul Simon, John Butler, David Gray and The Eagles, Joe Man’s music has evolved to become a unique blend of it’s own. Growing up in Ireland, living in three countries and working over 50 jobs, his tales are as unique as his family history. Joe Man has performed at music festivals throughout Australia, including the National Folk Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Tablelands Folk Festival and Majors Creek Festival amongst many others.
