Matt J Ward & The Rising Sons + Gretta Ziller (VIC) + Andrew Swift (VIC)

The Wheatsheaf Hotel presents a spectacular line up with some of Australia’s finest country troubadours - Gretta Ziller, Andrew Swift & Matt J Ward. 

GRETTA ZILLER

Having just released her stunning debut record “Queen of Boomtown”, Gretta Ziller is touring Australia to deliver a sound which bears the hallmarks of classic Americana music but its essence far more diverse. If you’ve been foolish enough to nail down the sound of acclaimed songwriter Gretta Ziller, then prepare to have the rug pulled out from under you. Queen of Boomtown defies categorisation and demands repeated listens. The Melbourne songstress’ roots span jazz, blues, rock, pop and classical, and that eclectic musical upbringing is reflected in the varied tracks on this new collection which was recored with a host of well known Australian musicians and songwriters (including Henry Wagons and Jen Mize).

ANDREW SWIFT

Andrew Swift, a 2017 Toyota Star Maker Grand Finalist, has been working to satisfy the desires of his restless heart, clocking up the kilometres with his pint sized caravan in tow. Swift has been taking his show to the people up and down the east coast and beyond including shows with some of the country’s finest including Shane Nicholson, Catherine Britt, Amber Lawrence, Adam Eckersley & Lachlan Bryan to name a few. "A powerful, soulful voice with a seemingly huge range, that sets him apart from his contemporaries" - Lachlan Bryan, Mint Magazine. “Swift really has a great gift for depicting time and place in his lyrics and the emotions that go with them. This is a man with a very positive and exciting musical career ahead of him.” – Neil Evans

MATT J WARD & THE RISING SONS

Delivering a soulful blend of Australian Country, Red Dirt and Americana music, Matt J Ward is quickly becoming established as an Australian country & Americana singer songwriter of note. His debut self-titled EP has drawn comparisons with Neil Murray, Shane Howard, Corb Lund and Sturgill Simpson among others. Australian Music Network commented Matt was “a musician of high promise” and “it’s easy to see why he’s receiving high praise”. 2016-2017 was busy year for Matt, playing regular shows across Australia including his first Tamworth Country Music Festival and the launch of the American Association of Australia. In his first show in Adelaide following a successful solo tour of Canada, Tennessee and Texas, Matt returns home to deliver new strengths, new songs and even more drive to deliver powerful and highly entertaining live performances with The Rising Sons.

The Hearth: What's Lost, What Lingers - A night of Readings + Q&A

Welcome to a night of readings themed 'What's Lost, What Lingers'.

Please join us as a selection of creators and performers will consider what, in processes and times of change, survives and what disappears. Where are the continuities as things shift or transform, and what drifts away? What is lost and what lingers?

In a Q&A panel, the readers will answer your questions. You might ask, where did their idea come from? How does their piece speak to the theme? What made them write it? 

If you like listening to stories, and like meeting people who like stories too, and like live music, and good wine, come along to The Hearth. We look forward to seeing you there!

Lloyd Spiegel (VIC)

Australian Blues master and acoustic guitarist extraordinaire Lloyd Spiegel is delighted to announce the release of his ninth album ‘This Time Tomorrow’ and is headed on an extensive tour to celebrate.

 ‘This Time Tomorrow’ is an album written as Lloyd travelled through Europe, Central and North America and delivers driving rhythms that return Spiegel to his gut bucket blues roots. Shady and colourful characters spread out over continents and decades, through places forgotten and familiar. ‘This Time Tomorrow' is a return in fine form from an artist at the top of his game and lead track ‘Devil On My Shoulder’ sets the mood of the album right from the get go. 

 Says Spiegel of the new songs,

“I’ve never written at home. I find it hard to be creative in my lounge room looking at bills and checking footy scores and find that the inspiration to write comes from those few quiet hours in a hotel room on tour, the airport transit lounge or the long bus ride is where I can reflect and put those experiences into lyric. I've travelled most of my life so really, they're like letters home."

 It’s been a while since Spiegel’s last studio album - 2010’s Tangled Brew – but he’s been far from idle in that time. He's toured the world relentlessly, launched his own signature model guitars and cemented his position as a bona fide festival headliner in Australia, with his recent performance at Bluesfest in Byron Bay the cherry on top. 

 In Australia, Spiegel is approaching icon status among guitar lovers and his 2015 double live album ‘Double Live Set’ won a swag of Australian blues ‘chain awards’, peaking at number 7 in the APRA independent charts. 

 With European and North American tours under his belt, along with recent showcases at Folk Alliance in Kansas City, the ECMAs in Canada and AMW in Sydney, Spiegel has many years on the road ahead of him. 

 ‘This Time Tomorrow’ is available in stores July 3 through Only Blues Music.

 “Australian blues and roots icon Lloyd Spiegel, in his first Bluesfest appearance, holds his own full house in the palm of his hand, just him and his trusty Cole Clark, a full swag of songs, a full tote of stories told with humour and aplomb, the man able to make his guitar do anything at all as he tells tales both tall and true, his own superbly written material marrying with blues standards in a way few others are able to manage. The man is a mountain, he’ll surely be back.” Sam Fell – Rolling Stone

Akoustic Odyssey

Akoustic Odyssey are an Australian, original, instrumental, world fusion musical group. Consisting of guitar, bass, cello, violin, percussion, drums, flute, clarinet and soprano saxophone, this combination creates a rich and truly unique sound. The blend of these original works and the newness of the sound make Akoustic Odyssey true innovators. It has been described that “Akoustic Odyssey are uncatergorisable” (Julia Lester ABC Classic FM) and their music is “crucial evidence of the treasure trove of musical genius we are blessed with in South Australia” (David Jobling, Independent Weekly-2007) They are influenced by so many different musical styles including Rock/Metal, Classical, Jazz, Greek, Spanish, Latin, Middle Eastern, African and Celtic that this in turn makes them truly Australian.
 
Founded in 2005 by current band members Joshua Tsounis and Anne Harrington, Akoustic Odyssey quickly grew into it's current format of six members. Their first major performance was at the 2006 Adelaide Fringe Festival. It was here that they won the Bank SA people's choice award. In the same year they made their first recording, an EP of six tracks. In 2007 , at the same festival they were nominated for the same award. In 2008 the band's first full length album titled 'ILIOS' was released. The recording and marketing was assisted financially by Arts SA and the launch was sponsored by Ceceres Music.
 
Shortly after the CD launch, Akoustic Odyssey were invited to perform at the 2009 WOMADelaide festival. This performance was a great success for the band where they played to a very responsive crowd of over 5000. During the same year the band traveled to Canberra to perform at the National Folk Festival. The band receives regular support and airplay on local and national radio stations such as ABC Classic FM and SBS radio.

Joshua Tsounis - Guitar
