Tripple Effect

Tripple Effect is an award-winning Newcastle-based contemporary folk trio comprising sisters Carrie and Lynden Jacobi with Len McCarthy. Performing original songs about social justice, the environment, and life’s twists and turns - sprinkled with a few from the lighter side of experience – their hallmark is tough but touching observation wrapped in sweet strings, mellow melodies and haunting harmonies. Formed in 2018, they won the prestigious national Alistair Hulett Songs for Social Justice Award in 2020 for their song ‘Straight from the Heart (the Makarrata Song)’ about the Uluru Statement from the Heart, and are now touring their debut album, Ripple Effects, released in September 2022.
