On-line Concert with Jason & Chloe Roweth
October 2 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$10
The Roweths have been researching and presenting the living tradition of Australian music for over twenty-five years, forging unique combinations of music, poetry and folklore. They bring you powerful and delicate songs, room stopping recitations, seamless combinations of new and old Australian material presented with the easy warmth of old-style bush entertainment. The Roweths engaging folk club style has adapted readily to online performance, where they now broadcast a fortnightly themed concert, ‘Saturday Streaming’, live to their Facebook page.
“Jason and Chloë Roweth are without question two of our finest interpreters of Australian traditional folk music.”
– Ruth Hazleton
“Chloë and Jason interpret their material with a variety of musical styles and distinctive arrangements that enhance the music rather than getting in its way, always remaining true to the sources of the songs and their singers. With such a range of talents it’s no surprise that they have been a fixture at festivals, concerts and clubs around the country for many years and collected a few awards in the process. Along the way … they have created a body of work that respects the tradition and keeps it alive with fresh interpretations and new creations in the same spirit.”
– Graham Seal, Professor of Folklore, Curtin University
Sweet Songs and Soft Guitar is a vocal duo based in Morpeth NSW. Kathy and Matthew Clarke perform songs of Love, Hope, and Caring for the environment and each other. Kathy’s stunning vocal clarity is supported by Matthew’s gentle guitar style.
The name “Sweet Songs and Soft Guitar” is inspired by the lyrics of Eric Bogle’s song “Kate and the Dreamtime Land” referring to the beautiful ambiance of session music and songs around the camp fire shared with friends. Sweet Songs and Soft Guitar is an uplifting experience in the folk tradition.
