WELCOME TO QMF 2013 G’day! Thanks for coming and voting (with your feet) that there is nothing wrong with the Australian music scene. In fact it’s booming. The acts we have on the bill this year were selected from over 700 or so that popped up on our radar. We have started to book bands not just for next year, but 2015. There isn’t any big bad promoter behind the Queenscliff Music Festival. It’s a not-for-profit, community-based organisation that only exists because of the support from its 550 plus volunteers, 50 or so really dedicated team leaders, a voluntary Board of Management, some great and very generous partners and a skeleton staff. We also have a great local community that lets us take over vast tracts of the town for more than just the three days of the Fest. We try to give back as much as we possibly can. One thing we are very proud of is the $29,000 we have given in the past three years to emerging

local artists. Check out this year’s recipients of our grants who are playing – Yirrmal & the Yolngu Boys, The Murlocs and Sweethearts. We also have a bunch of community groups contributing over the weekend who donate their time for some cash support in return. Our motto here is a weekend helping us out and serving you equals 52 sausage sizzles or thereabouts. You may notice the program guide is getting smaller. We thought if you don’t have a smartphone that can download our great mobile app, you could look just as cool with this in your pocket. So if you see some hipster head deep in their mobile device, just slide up next to ‘em and flick through this puppy with confidence and style. This doesn’t need a recharge and has all the same good info, lowdown and advice – which begins with “Have a great, safe and memorable Festival”! Yours in Great Australian Music – The QMF Family!

MIDNIGHT OIL TRIBUTE SHOW The Oils! More than just a rock’n’roll band. No band better exemplifies being Australian – self reliant, no bullshit, resourceful, willing to risk it all and a fair go for all. Formed in 1972, Rob Hirst (drums, vocals), Andrew “Bear” James (bass), Jim Moginie (guitars, keys & vocals), Martin Rotsey (guitar) along with singer Peter Garrett became known for the countless gigs they played during the late ‘70s, early ‘80s. In 1982, their album 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 was a monster success, likewise Red Sails in the Sunset and Species. Their 1986 Blackfella/ Whitefella tour through the outback with the Warumpi Band gave us Diesel and Dust. The Dead Heart, Put Down That Weapon and Beds Are Burning opened-up Midnight Oil to new audiences all over the world. What followed was a whirlwind decade with acclaimed releases Blue Sky Mining (1990), Earth and Sun and 6

Moon (1993) culminating at the closing of the 2000 Sydney Olympics with the word ‘Sorry’ emblazoned across their shirts. In 2002, Midnight Oil officially disbanded with Garrett entering politics. Their legacy still resonates! Midnight Oil Tribute Show – Various Artists – Hippos Stage, Saturday 6-7pm

ALISTER TURRILL It would be a generalisation to group 21-year-old Alister Turrill with other young roots players. His style blends a true form of blues with complex song writing seldom seen in someone so young. 2013 has seen Alister Turrill unleash his debut album Reverence & Resonance, a collection of original, raw, passionate and honest songs. “It’s refreshing to witness live a craftsman at work and Alister Turrill playing his lap steel guitar is one of those unique experiences” – Michael Carrucan, Director of Queenscliff Music Festival. Stoked-On-Hesse, Saturday 1–1.45pm QMF Family Express, Saturday 5 & 6pm

BABY ET LULU Baby et Lulu is the charismatic musical partnership between Abby Dobson, songstress extraordinaire and former front-person for the platinum selling Leonardo’s Bride and Lara Goodridge, violinist/singer with the celebrated string quartet FourPlay. Along with their superlative band, they pay tribute to the great singers and songwriters of France with panache and joie de vivre. It’s a rendezvous you don’t want to miss!

ANDREW SWIFT & THE RATTLESNAKE CHOIR From the south-east suburbs of Melbourne reside Andrew Swift & The Rattlesnake Choir, four musicians that create and perform the kind of music that stays with you for more than the length of a CD or a 45 minute set. After being a solo singer/songwriter for several years, Swift headed to El Paso, Texas to record his debut album. Upon his return home, The Rattlesnake Choir was formed. With work mate Colin Dawson on guitar, old mate Matt Davenport on bass and Swift’s high school drum teache, Nathan Hill already on board, Swift’s live sound was full. Lombardy’s On Hesse, Saturday 2–2.45pm Queenscliff Inn, Saturday 3.45–4.30pm

BLUE KING BROWN Their power packed live show is second to none and now world renowned, Blue King Brown have played across the planet, through Europe, UK, Canada, USA and Japan. Once again pushing genre boundaries and breaking new sonic grounds, their new album saw them working alongside the legendary Sly & Robbie, special guests such as Queen Ifrica and Jah Mason, engineers such as James ‘Bonzai’ Caruso, Colin ‘Bulby’ York from Kingston, Jamaica and Chris Macro. Do not miss the opportunity to see this band! Lighthouse stage, Friday 9.30–10.30pm


BUDDHA IN A CHOCOLATE BOX A five-piece rare alternative/folk outfit sticking to their Southern stomp roots, their journey is to develop and spread an Australian folk sound. The frontman is unpredictable and joined by raw vocalist Adrian Calvano, who also wields the guitar, wild-bearded Shane Baker on the bass, Matty “Fiddler” Pitman on his enchanting violin, Jase Mulley on lead guitar and skin-slapping Gavin Kelly on the drums. After initially spending their nights packing out pubs, Buddha in a Chocolate Box spread their wings and launched their debut EP, The Keep on Keepin’ On, in 2010.

BUSBY MAROU Folk-inspired pop outfit Busby Marou are making a serious impact on the Australian stage. Jeremy Marou, a proud Torres Strait Islander, has a unique and rare musical talent. He excels on just about every instrument he touches including ukulele, bass, drums and piano. However, it is his natural ability on the guitar that makes you stop and listen. This, combined with Thomas Busby’s distinctly Australian way of sharing stories, has developed into a unique Australian songwriting flavour with cracking harmonies, breathtaking musicianship and a natural feel for each other’s guitars.

Lombardy’s On Hesse, Saturday 12.45–1.30pm QMF Family Express, Saturday 3 & 4pm

Lighthouse Stage, Saturday 1.30–2.30pm

CHANCE WATERS

CHRIS RUSSELL’S CHICKEN WALK

2012 was a huge year for Sydney’s Chance Waters. He released his acclaimed sophomore album Infinity which debuted at no. 54 on the ARIA Charts, was nominated for Unearthed Artist of the Year at the 2012 J Awards and his video for second single Maybe Tomorrow (ft. Lilian Blue) was voted no. 7 in the 2012 rage 50 ahead of M.I.A., Grimes, Tame Impala among others. He then proceeded to secure two entries in triple j’s Hottest 100. 2013 is promising to be an even bigger year for Chance Waters. Lighthouse Stage, Friday 6.30–7.30pm

10

Chris Russell’s Chicken Walk play low down, down home, juke joint blues. For two-and-ahalf years, Chicken Walk was just Chris playing solo with just an open-tuned, sea foam green Danelectro and a Goldentone reverbmaster for company on stage. In December 2011, Chicken Walk grew to a ‘two-piece feed’, adding on drums and this new live sound begun filling rooms with hypnotic boogie and pulsating Northern Mississippi Hill country blues. QMF Family Express Saturday 11am &12pm Pelican Bar, Saturday 3.30–4.30pm Vue Grand, Sunday 12.30–1.30pm

D AT SEA Better known by his moniker D At Sea, Doyle Perez became a YouTube sensation after his acoustic cover of Parkway Drive’s Carrion went viral in late 2011. Since the Parkway Drive video D At Sea has released a host of other reworked renditions of songs from the hardcore genre including tracks by The Amity Affliction and Bring Me the Horizon among others. Live performances have given Perez the chance to preview his original material to an ever-growing fan base. The Pavilion, Saturday 9.30–10.15pm

DARREN PERCIVAL After his astounding appearances on The Voice in 2012 and following the success of his album, Happy Home, Darren Percival returned to Queenscliff for a special solo one-off show in June and then for two special sets with his band at the Festival in November. Prior to The Voice, Darren was an independent musician with a loyal fan base. With over 20 years of professional musical experience, he has created a reputation as one of the leading vocalists in the country. Hippos Stage, Friday 8.30–9.30pm Lighthouse Stage, Saturday 3–4pm

12

DALLAS FRASCA Dallas Frasca began to sing at aged 18, when she discovered her singing ability at a house warming party. Years later, as far as accolades for rock ‘n’ roll music go, it doesn’t get much better than legendary Guns & Roses guitarist Slash not only spinning a copy of her album all around the USA in his tour van, but actually taking the time to let you know he digs it too.

Hippos Stage, Sunday 1.45-2.30pm

EAGLE AND THE WORM After forming in Melbourne 2010, as a bunch of friends messing around in the studio under the guidance of band leader Jarrad Brown, Eagle and the Worm spent 2011 on the road, performing around Australia and Europe on the back of what became their critically acclaimed debut album, GoodTimes. Blending styles into a party stage show – mashing pop music, 60s vocal harmonies, songs, jams and a three-piece horn section. Their shows at this year’s 17th QMF will be stand-up, party affairs. Pelican Bar, Sunday 12.15–1.15pm Rip Stage, Sunday 5.15–6pm After Party


EMPRA Driven by the rock ‘n’ roll spirit, EMPRA are riding a wave of buzz across Australia and the world. After completing a massive 24 date Australian tour, they had a successful stint in LA where they were crowned the winners of the Live Nation International Band Competition. EMPRA have an unapologetically high-energy rock sound and a louder is better attitude. Meld this with raw, honest lyrics that angle to electrocute hearts and supercharge spirits into euphoric sing-a-longs and you have EMPRA’s unmistakable sound and captivating live show. Rip Stage, Saturday 7.15–8pm Rip Stage, Sunday 3.30–4.15pm

GENEVIEVE CHADWICK Genevieve Chadwick looks like an angel, roars like a lion and plays guitar like a demon! Without doubt, Genevieve is an extraordinary performer who exudes raw energy by the bucket load. She has the power to bring an entire venue to a complete standstill. Her own original brand of blues and roots – poignant songs full of rich melodies, sung with a voice that’s confoundingly gravel-like and smooth all at once - has given this singer/songwriter from the NSW South Coast a loyal and ever-growing army of followers. QMF Family Express, Saturday 1 & 2pm Pelican Bar, Saturday 6.30-7.30pm Queenscliff Inn, Sunday 10.30-11.15am Stoked On Hesse, Sunday 1.15-2pm

FRASER A. GORMAN & BIG HARVEST Fraser A. Gorman embraces an old-world style of storytelling, drawing inspiration from early dustbowl singers like Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan as well as modern songsmiths such as Justin Townes Earle, whom he also had the pleasure of supporting in January this year. He is firmly establishing himself as one of the country’s most promising rising talents. Big Harvest – Sam Cooper, Jarrad Brown, Sophia Lubczenko and Stu Mackenzie accompany Fraser A. Gorman live, providing a rich, multi-layered sound of sweet harmonies synonymous with classic country/folk music. QMF Family Express, Saturday 3 & 4pm (solo) Vue Grand, Saturday 6.15-7pm Queenscliff Inn, Sunday 2.15-3pm

GINGER AND TONIC A cappella girl group, Ginger and Tonic enrapture audiences with their playful and original brand of cabaret/pop. In a single show, Emma, Jane, Carena and Sheona will have their audience in hysterics during cheeky comedy numbers, and leave them breath taken with impeccable closeharmony ballads. The group has performed internationally and impressed fans and peers alike. Their varied repertoire includes clever covers, musical parodies and original songs – no instruments required!

HUSSY HICKS Since forming in 2006, Julz Parker and Leesa Gentz have forged their own, very unique way into the global music scene. Fearlessly independent, the genre-defying Hussy Hicks have followed a trail of possibilities, random twists and turns and discovered a musical world all of their own. Their influences are drawn from family record collections of old school blues and country and from their travels, combining a distinctly Australian roots edge with European gypsy guitar, Arabic rhythms and optimistic social commentaries. Pelican Bar, Saturday 12.30-1,30pm Vue Grand, Saturday 7.30-8.30pm QMF Family Express, Sunday 11am&12pm Stoked On Hesse, Sunday 3.15-4pm

JACK CARTY The release of the stunning collaboration The Predictable Crisis Of Modern Life with Sydney-based producer Casual Psychotic has seen Jack Carty take a turn away from the folk troubadour roots of his first two albums, stepping into a different musical realm exploring a new set of sounds, beats and vocal phrasings. Having clocked up in excess of 200 live shows nationally and abroad with headline shows and supports slots for artists including Matt Corby and Josh Pyke, Jack Carty continues to impress audiences with incredible live shows. Vue Grand, Sunday 3.30–4.30pm

IMOGEN BROUGH Imogen’s music has an ethereal quality. Earthy vocals combine with creative, lyrical piano and violin in a balladic style. Celtic and Irish music surround her melodic songwriting, of love stories and of the sea. Imogen recorded her first EP Counting Waves, which was released in August 2012. Completing a Bachelor of Music Performance in 2012 at the Victorian College of the Arts/The University of Melbourne, Imogen was an artist on The Voice. This amazing opportunity saw her working along side Ricky Martin and mentor Jessica Mauboy. Lombardy’s On Hesse, Saturday 11.30am-12.15pm Stoked On Hesse, Saturday 2-2.45pm Queenscliff Inn, Sunday 11.45am-12.30pm

JACK WRIGHT/ KIANA ARCHER From the age of 17, Jack Wright found an interest in playing the acoustic guitar after seeing videos of artists such as Newton Faulkner and John Butler. Since then he has explored many more acoustic artists and tried to expand his technical ability and songwriting to be able to create lush melodies and upbeat percussion all at the same time on the one instrument. Kiana archer is a 15-year-old winner from this year’s Kids Busking for Kids event over Easter. Her music range is vast and counts Maddi Jane, Lakyn Heperi, Lewis Watson and Woodlock as influences. J: Stoked On Hesse, Sunday 12.15–1pm K: Queenscliff Inn, Saturday 10.45–11.30am

JASMINE RAE Jasmine Rae has come a long way in five years – from the quirky, fresh-faced girl, barely out of her teens, who released her debut single Country Singer in 2008, into one of Australia’s most acclaimed and respected country artists.

Lighthouse Stage, Saturday 12–1pm

LACHY DOLEY As one half of the famous Doley brothers session keyboard franchise and after success with Powderfinger, Barnsey, Billy Thorpe and others, you might think that launching a solo thing would be a step back and to the left for Doley. It seems though that the lure of sticky carpet, driving huge distances and poor pay proved too strong and Lachy has stepped to the front with his new album, Typically Individual Conforming Anti-Social – the album that heralds the launch of the next phase. Pelican Bar, Saturday 9.30-10.30pm

PEZ It’s been a long time since his successful debut, but PEZ is back with a new album, Don’t Look Down, out November 1, 2013. Following the success of The Festival Song, touring took hold and PEZ saw himself playing to massive crowds on festivals like Pyramid Rock and the Bliss N Eso tour, selling out rooms all over the country.

SASKWATCH Every band has a story to tell about how they started out and where playing their music has taken them. But few can say they have gone from busking on the streets to gracing the stage at Glastonbury in just four years. With ecstatic horns, one of the tightest rhythm sections in town and Nkechi Anele’s soaring vocals, capable of breaking hearts one minute and eliciting frenzied dancing the next, they refused to be ignored. Things just keep coming for Saskwatch. Lighthouse Stage, Saturday 4.30–5.30pm

SPIDERBAIT With three talented songwriters, Spiderbait have never been confined by genre or the expectations of others. The seeds of their bond were planted in the small southern NSW town of Finley, where all three members of Spiderbait grew up. The band formed in Melbourne in 1990 after all three members had relocated there and they soon graduated from raucous house parties to the city’s stages. Over the next 15 years, they would go on to national prominence. See them hit the Queenscliff Music Festival stage for the first time. Lighthouse Stage, Saturday 8–9.15pm

STICKY FINGERS The four-piece Newtown misfits are misspending their youth while we watch. And it’s as colourful as that review suggests: a melodic, megahectic, mash of psychedelic, pop and roots. The Sydney-based four-piece (sometimes five-piece) are delivering a refreshing vibe to Australian music. Sticky Fingers are back in Australia after a couple of months abroad touring Europe and have brought back with them a brand new video clip, swag of tour dates, and probably a few things a doctor should check out.

STOMPY AND THE HEAT Best known as the writer/producer/guitarist behind the ARIA and multi award-winning artist Dan Sultan, Scott Wilson has enjoyed many musical accomplishments and now takes the opportunity to do something very different. Originally based around the sound of a cheap ‘60s Japanese guitar teamed with the manic drum style of Pete Marin, an uncomplicated collection of raw, bluesy, punky, songs has emerged.

THE TROUBLE WITH TEMPLETON In April 2011, Thomas Calder, at age 20, gathered all the gear he could find and recorded a mini-album called Bleeders in his Brisbane home.

In June 2012, the act underwent a spectacular transformation – they became an epic, clever, stunningly beautiful and powerful five-piece band. The new, exceptionally talented band members know how to complement and build on Thomas’ voice and songwriting skills perfectly. Hippos Stage, Saturday 3.15–4pm Rip Stage, Sunday 1.45–2.30pm

TIDES OF WELCOME The Tides of Welcome are delighted to launch their new CD at this year’s festival, Let Your Little Light Shine. There is something special about singing together in seamless harmonies, hearing an individual voice belt out a solo, an amazing improvisation, or perhaps float above the main body of the choir with ethereal purity. Each individual voice combines to create a sound much greater and more beautiful than the sum of the parts. The feeling is exhilarating and Tides of Welcome are keen to share this with their audience at QMF. Pelican Bar, Sunday 10.45–11.45am
