WEEPING WILLOWS
Fusion Boutique Presents THE WEEPING WILLOWS 'You Reap What You Sow' Album Launch Tour + SMITH & JONES
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel
2022 & 2021 CMAA 'Golden Guitar', Australian Folk Music and Music Victoria Award winners, The Weeping Willows (Laura Coates and Andrew Wrigglesworth) are a couple of old souls, steeped in Bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, God and The Devil, murder and decay. That kind of description might make them sound like some carefully contrived concept-act but there's something truly different about The Weeping Willows: they really mean it…
2017-2021 saw The Weeping Willows nominated for 10 x CMAA 'Golden Guitar' awards, 4 x Country Music Channel (CMC) awards, 2 x Australian Folk Music Awards (AFMAs), Live Act of the Year (Country) in the National Live Music Awards (NLMAs), performing at AmericanaFest (USA), Folk Alliance International (USA), Maverick Festival (UK), Port Fairy Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Out On The Weekend and the Australian Americana Music Honours.
In recent years they have supported Lukas Nelson & POTR (USA), Hayes Carll (USA), Iris DeMent (USA), Eilen Jewell (USA) and Willie Watson (USA) and completed national and international tours in support of their sophomore album, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin', which received four-star reviews in Rolling Stone, The Australian and The Music.
A Weeping Willows performance, whether live on location or caught on tape will always delight.
**** - "Australian Alt. Country at its near-finest…" - Rolling Stone

Smith & Jones, a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones, have never been ones to follow the pack. Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will. Since their very first meeting in 2014, Smith & Jones have toured extensively with their two albums Dark Gives Way (2017) and Something Worth Learning (2019) in tow, but always with their live shows at the heart of their partnership.

2022 will see Smith & Jones release new recorded work which looks set to further their reputation as a duo worthy of their high regard as both a live act, and their sensitivity and skill as songwriters and recording artists.
'Waiting on my Turn' their newest single is set to be released in March.
