SPECIAL GUESTS: Charm of Finches
Multi award-winning contemporary folk duo Charm of Finches with their stunning arrangements of original chamber folk, jaw dropping sibling vocal harmonies, and poetic, intimate songwriting. Melbourne sisters Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes have spent the last few months touring their second album "Your Company" around Australia. A genre-defying album born of turbulence and grief, the sisters' songwriting explore themes of love and loss, a melancholia made sublimely beautiful by the duo’s compelling ethereal vocal harmonies and spacious string arrangements. The duo have been a favourite of the folk festival circuit. 2017 National Folk Festival Young Musician Award winners and twice Folk Alliance Australia youth awards recipients, the sisters have been recognised nationally and internationally for their songwriting and other worldly "blood" harmonies. “folk purity…affecting and emotional” The Music “'Your Company’ is a deep ocean swaying and heaving with dark tales, swirling melodies and astounding songs that float upon a hundred lovely stringed things. Songs filled with beauty, wisdom and magic with some of the sweetest ‘blood harmonies’ you’re likely to hear this side of this century! ” - Khristian Mizzi
