Martin & Coole are a folk swing blues duo from Western Australia featuring the songs of Jonathan Cope and Emma Birkett. 'The Roaring Gimlet' is their debut CD of ten original songs and was recorded live at Shanghai Twang in January 2017 with guest musicians Ian Simpson (dobro, banjo, guitar), John Perry (double bass) and Rob Zielinski (fiddle) joining Jonathan (vocals, guitar, mandolin, harmonica) and Emma (vocals, ukulele). The album also features the song 'FIFO Angels', recorded with Xiao Xuan (yangqin) and Malcolm Mah (double bass), and the film clip of this song (directed by Ric Cairns) will be screened at the CD launch.
Supported by Chinese trio Crystal Jade, the Martin & Coole CD launch will bring all the musicians together for an intimate CD launch performance in the atmospheric setting of the Kidogo Arthouse on Bather's Beach in Fremantle.
The 3pm afternoon show has now SOLD OUT, so the band are announcing a second early evening show from 6.30pm-9pm
