Oh my Oh my. Lookeee here ey? Seems like we have a tasty triple bill on our hands for one night only!
Join MonCoeur, Ruby Gill and Billy Barker for a free show out in Castlemaine. Mon's home stomp and a chance for Ruby and Bill to head up the Calder and say g'day.
It'll be nearing the end of winter and what better way see it out than spend some time with three songwriters doing what they love for a room full of people who will love it too.
The voice of Mon Coeur is an idiosyncratic journey through melody and lyricism. Tales of love, loss, the search and the journey delivered in a resonant alto.
With Influences ranging from Karen Dalton, Feist, The Everly Brothers, Sharon Van Etten to Florence and the Machine; Mon Coeur’s songwriting and vocalisation harks back to her years spent at choir.
Ruby Gill may not cook like your mum, but she is leaving permanent potholes in the status quo with career-defining grit, overwhelming honesty and unique insight into the worlds of birds, border security and panic attacks. Off the back of a sold-out tour of motherland South Africa, the songwriter unleashed gritty debut single "Your Mum" in November 2018 to hundreds of thousands of streams, playlists, radio rotation and rave global reviews from the likes of Triple J and The Wild Honey Pie in its first week. With a debut album in the works, Ruby's immense voice, heavy Jaguar, heavier piano and scarily vulnerable stage presence have been appearing on festivals around the world, from Oppikoppi to Woodford. In the words of Triple J’s Zan Rowe, “excuse me while I scrape myself off the floor.”
Billy Barker's live show can leave you feeling amused and heartbroken within the same pint of beer. Not afraid to cover the pointy ends of life, this relatively new folk singer is approaching the genre with a bold contemporary edge.
