Event description

Michael Waugh is an incredible Melbourne-based singer-songwriter in the storytelling tradition. His uniquely Australian country-inspired folk music evokes a heartfelt contemporary voice.

Nominated for Best New Talent at the 2017 Golden Guitar awards, Michael Waugh gives a profound new voice to the Australian experience. His insightful storytelling cuts to the emotional heart of everyday life. A unique, intelligent and emotionally charged performer, Waugh has been compared to the honesty and power of Australian folk and country legends, Mick Thomas, Paul Kelly and John Williamson. He is uniquely Australian and genuine – the real deal.

Supporting Michael is the wonderful Gretta Ziller. 

Gretta's sound may bear the hallmarks of classic Americana music but its essence is far more diverse. The Melbourne songstress’ roots span jazz, blues, rock, pop and classical, and that eclectic musical upbringing is reflected in the varied tracks on her new collection.
Ziller brought together an impressive array of musicians to perform on
Queen of Boomtown, the recordings featuring members of Saskwatch, The
Cat Empire, and the bands of Angus & Julia Stone, Passenger and Dan
Sultan.
