The Festival of Small Halls Spring Tour is coming to Mallanganee on Wednesday 30 October, with featured artists The Jellyman’s Daughter and Ash Bell and Sara Tindley.
Festival of Small Halls is Australia’s largest music tour dedicated exclusively to regional, rural and remote Australia. Producer Eleanor Rigden says programming the tour hand-in-hand with some of Australia’s biggest music festivals means regional communities can leverage access to the same standard of arts and culture as their metropolitan counterparts.
Hailing from Edinburgh, The Jellyman’s Daughter are one of Scotland’s most innovative new exports and are looking forward to the unique exposure of the tour.
Described as a blend of bluegrass, post-rock, folk and soul music, The Jellyman’s Daughter promise “harmonies that squeeze the heart” and cello playing that can be “as percussive as a drum, as grounded as a bass or as sweet as a fiddle” (The Sunday Herald).
Ash Bell and Sara Tindley will ring familiar to many across the outback – Ash Bell comes from contemporary Australiana outfit and festival favourites The Starboard Cannons and is already looking forward to his second run with Festival of Small Halls.
He’s formed a new partnership with Sara Tindley, who is fresh to the band from her fourth solo album, produced by Nick Didia (Bruce Springsteen, Powderfinger, Pearl Jam). Together they’ve created an iconic Australia roots sound which reaches down into the soul of the listener.
