The HARVEST LOUNGE
Saturday 8th November brings the launch of The HARVEST LOUNGE – an intimate night of live music, supper and records. Over the warmer months, The HARVEST LOUNGE will feature live sets from a fine selection of current music artists and a collection of classic vinyls to take you back to the past.
In the rustic retro setting of the Upper River Hall, Kangaroo Valley, the first of these evenings will feature two bearded indie folk artists in a dual headline, both telling their musical stories with a rawness and intimacy that will leave you mesmerised.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as Bon Iver, Ben Howard and Tallest Man on Earth, twenty four year old Matt Dewar (aka DIREWOLF) is a stout product of the undiscovered indie folk movement, with one review commenting that “his name is true to his music…full of howls and a lingering sadness.” Guaranteed genuine great songs that you will want to hear again.
TIMOTHY JAMES BOWEN, a south coast singer who has travelled the world with his catchy folk melodies and heartfelt lyrics, brings an earthy rich honesty to his songs, with vocals reminiscent of the late Jeff Buckley. As one music blogger wrote: “…Bowen writes stunning folk tunes” and his recent number 13 on the iTunes singer songwriters charts proves it! Tim will be joined on stage by Christina Mullany.
Christina and Tim both featured on the Songbirds (2010) and Songwaves (2011) albums and concerts, which showcased over 30 south coast musicians doing original songs. Kangaroo Valley local Ben Moore, who was the producer for those projects, is bringing more sweet sounds to the Valley this summer with The Harvest Lounge.
There will be four 20 minute sets, which will be recorded and filmed with time in between to mingle and munch, to soak up the full moon ambience, to hear the crackle of records, fires blazing, the smell of hay, the magic of being part of something live, something new and something nostalgic.
