This month we have one hour each from Penny Davies & Roger Ilott + Chloe & Jason Roweth


Penny Davies & Roger Ilott


For over 30 years PENNY DAVIES & ROGER ILOTT have being writing and singing songs that are truly Australian. Millions of Australians hear and love their songs every week on Ian McNamara's “Australia All Over” ABC Radio show. Their songs Hey Rain!, Where the Cane Fires Burn, Beside a Railway Line, Ridin' on the Fruit Train, The Monkeys Sing Soprano, and When The Cooper's Coming Down, have become part of the national psyche. They have released 16 albums since their debut album, Restless, in 1983 - all feature “trademark clean tight vocals, excellent musicianship and high production values.
Lonnie Martin, Folk Rag

Penny Davies and Roger Ilott occupy a unique place in Australian music spanning the great divide between Folk and Country. They have reinvigorated the bush ballad, kept alive the protest song, and have celebrated all that it means to be Australian without a cork hat, lagerphone or phoney accent on the horizon. Penny Davies simply has one of the richest voices in Australian folk and country music; add in the integrity of Roger Ilott's gentle delivery, and you have the best harmonies you're likely to hear. Coupled with Roger Ilott's compelling acoustic guitar and Rickenbacker 12 string artistry, it's little wonder Penny Davies & Roger Ilott, who already have an Australia wide following for their music, are now finding an audience for their songs around the world.

Chloe and Jason Roweth

Over the past ten years or so they have recorded 10 CD’s in their own right and have also been part of 2 CD’s for Bathurst band Collector and 2 CD’s for Wongawilli. They possess a high standard of musicianship with thoughtful and tasteful musical arrangements. Their repertoire includes strong original songs, old style ballads, well known (and some less well known) bush songs presentd with a great mix of lively dance tunes - most of these from Australian players.... Chloe and Jason Roweth have a deep love for the music they play and are highly skilled at presenting it. They are a top class concert act.

Chloe and Jason Roweth are the best thing to happen to Australian traditional folk music in the last decade.
