More about the artists
Damian Howard will be performing songs from his recently released fourth album Ned, a collection of ballads capturing our homegrown legend in the heart of Kelly Country. His song From Greta down to Seymour, The Great Dividing Range reaches to the heart of country folk living off the land. Damian’s wonderful storytelling and knack of translating folklore into song brings our local heroes to life and shows a deep love and knowledge of Australian history.
Sal Kimber is a third generation daughter of the North East. This modern-day female Dylan has quietly stolen hearts at festivals and the live music scene for the past five years. Sal’s distinctive Australian songs capture the power of the landscape and express her heartfelt connection to this part of the Victoria. She is touring with her talented band The Rollin’ Wheel, named by Rolling Stone magazine as “Australiana Alt-country at its finest”.
Tracey McNeil grew up listening to Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles. Her latest album Thieves delivers classic Americana infused with a healthy dose of Californian shimmer. Deemed ✯✯✯✯ by Rolling Stone magazine and described by Rhythms Magazine as a ‘classic album’ just waiting to be heard, Thieves harks back to the halcyon days of late 70s.
