Join Tennessine with KillWater and Black Cypress at the Artists Shed!

With pretty, trippy vocals and harmonies, electric and acoustic guitars, bass, banjo, violin and ebow, Canberra four piece Tennessine channels the ethereal folk, roots, blues and dark country leanings of Mazzy Star, Neil Young and Lucinda Williams. Their beautiful, original songs deliver messages of love, loss and homage to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

In the spirit of the godfathers of blues, funk and soul the likes of Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Bill Withers and Freddie King, KillWater is putting it out there with their own electric funk/soul-infused rockin’ blues, shamelessly drawing upon life’s universal themes with songs about getting it on, getting down, getting even, wanting more and getting less.

Borne of dark and chimeric folk blues, Black Cypress pay a melodic homage to the savage and beautiful. Inspired by remote wilderness areas, this three-piece band mesh dynamic acoustic blues, with instinctive vocal harmonies and incisive violin reveries. Black Cypress challenge us with bootlegged and bowlegged folk tales of the struggle to satisfy a twisted and unapologetic longing for wildness and love.
