Madeleine Gray who hails from Melbourne. Although she has dabbled in music of all sorts, from opera, writing her own to studying Bulgarian Folk singing in Bulgaria, she has turned her focus closer to her roots (and childhood). Singing traditional folk songs primarily from England and Scotland, her powerful voice is sure to impress. Either a-cappella or accompanied by guitar, her performance of folk classics will have you engaged (and maybe singing along!)


Ian ‘the Pump’ Macintosh co-founded Australia’s popular Wheeze & Suck Band, and today fronts the Traditional Graffiti Band. He is also a member of ‘TRI’, a UK/Australia trio creating roots-based rock and electronica. His chosen instruments are acoustic and electric guitar, bottleneck and melodeon.

A regular performer of traditional and original Folk and Blues material at clubs, bars and festivals in Australia, New Zealand and the UK, Ian has also won the Australian Songwriters award (2009 – Rag and Bone), and has been a finalist in two MusicOz song writing competitions.

 Ian is a true believer in the traditional face-to-face intimacy of folk clubs and sessions; preferable to ‘concerts’, where audiences rarely get involved beyond listening and applauding. For what is folk music when it moves beyond the involvement of the listener?

The Pump has released seven albums with the Wheeze & Suck Band, two albums with Traditional Graffiti, and has two Pump solo albums available at gigs and online.

Check out the Pump on or, and for free downloads, plus individual track and album purchases.
