Blue Goose Band + Grimick at Humph Hall
7pm, Friday 15th March 2013

Posted Saturday, February 2, 2013

A fundraiser for the Northern Beaches Music Festival

Blue Goose Band are one of Australia's favourite folk bands who describe their music as: "old time blues, folk, a bit of jazz + original songs."

Blue Goose Band

They consist of:

Sonia Bennett (vocals & guitar) - Sonia is one of Australia's most celebrated singer/songwriters. Not only has she written and recorded many renowned songs such as 'The Wollemi Pine' and 'Sydney Song', she has also recorded settings of poems by Henry Lawson, Denis Kevans, Billy Wye and others. She has performed on radio and television many times over a career spanning 30 years. Her glorious voice will sound stunning in Humph Hall!

Max Gregory (blues harp, slide guitar, banjo & acoustic guitar) - Max has played folk/blues/jug band music since the 1960s backing various vocalists and in many bands.

Bruce Stavert (piano, guitar, mandolin, ukulele & vocal harmonies) - Bruce has played a mixture of styles in folk/jug band/bluegrass/rock/blues/jazz groups since the early 70s.

Ralph Mitchell (bass, guitar & vocal harmonies) - Ralph teaches guitar and bass. He is also an experienced musician who plays a variety of styles including folk, blues, jazz and rock.

With seemingly no upward limit to their vocal range, they are capable of both power and tenderness, humour and passion. Combine this with ripping guitar riffs and solos, smooth harmonies, earthy percussive rhythms and arrangements on conga, trumpet, ukulele and piano – and you have a special live act not to be missed.

Grimick are one of the Northern Beaches most popular young bands.

An honest, acoustic, folk-rock style, Grimick are an energetic group of singer/song-writers who never stray far from the essential ingredients - great rhythm, a contagious melody, and something to say.

With seemingly no upward limit to their vocal range, they are capable of both power and tenderness, humour and passion. Combine this with ripping guitar riffs and solos, smooth harmonies, earthy percussive rhythms and arrangements on conga, trumpet, ukulele and piano – and you have a special live act not to be missed.

Grimick have captivated audiences & received outstanding reviews at festivals and premier live music venues all over the country.
