When I'm 64 - Billy Miller & The Love Brothers

Billy Miller turns 64 on Friday, July the 29th, and what better way to celebrate than for Billy and his band The Love Brothers to play another one of their electric BEATLES shows at the Caravan Music Club. Echoing their popular Sunday afternoon Beatles shows, Billy and band will open with (what else) “WHEN I’M 64”, followed by a rousing two sets of Beatles classics as only they can produce. Special guests XANI KOLAC (violin/vocals) and MATTHEW ROBERT (harmonica/vocals)

In July 1965 Billy’s mum bought him his first guitar, and a week later he had the chords to 50 Beatles songs under his belt. Until then, singing along with the Fab Four in front of the mirror, using a broom for a mike stand, was the order of the day.

“There’s a lot of tame Beatles immitations out there, but the difference when Billy sings and the band plays, is that when you close your eyes, you can feel them channel the raw authentic sound, spirit and energy of the Beatles.

Skip Gorman

Skip Gorman - Mandolin, fiddle, guitar and Cowboy singer and raconteur, Skip will charm, delight and amaze with his extraordinary musicianship and vocal style steeped in the rich history of the cowboy and pioneer. Skip can deliver the saddest song, filled with pathos, about the dying boy on the 'Lone Prairie' that will have you in tears and a few minutes later, laughing so hard you'll cry...again! We are simply thrilled to have Skip coming to the caravan. Special Guests PAUL WOOKEY & PHILOMENA CARROLL

Through his music, Skip brings back to life the workaday world of the cowboys of the American West. His music is not the music of the Hollywood cowboy, but rather the simple, yet beautifully poignant music that was performed around campfires by cowboys and westward settlers in the 19th century. Gorman brings to the music a scholar’s knowledge of the cowboy’s Celtic, Spanish and Afro-American roots as well as the personal experience gained by working as a cowboy on a ranch in Wyoming, along with an exquisite touch as a singer, guitarist, fiddler and mandolinist.

Vika & Linda ( 2nd Show )

The much loved vocal duo will delight us once again on the Caravan Club stage. For 30 years, the glorious voices of VIKA & LINDA BULL have comprised one of the most distinctive, versatile and emotionally charged sounds on the Australian music landscape.

Since their multi-platinum conquest of pop radio with the Black Sorrows in the late 1980s, the sisters have forged diverse pathways into soul, gospel, blues, country and the island music of their Tongan ancestry.

By turns tender and powerful, their rich solo vocals and instinctive harmonies have spawned eight albums of their own, as well as illuminating studio and concert performances by Paul Kelly, Rockwiz, C.

Doug Parkinson honours Joe Cocker

Australia's greatest soul voice DOUG PARKINSON presents the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker. A night of soul and rock classics, the electric current runs high, generated from the very talented 8 piece band and of course the powerful and unique voice of Doug Parkinson.

Joe Cocker was an irresistible force that combined a love of American soul music with standout interpretations and depth of feeling, terms often used to describe the soulful smoky voice of Australian singing legend Doug Parkinson.

Cocker is most famous for what he did with other people’s songs Hitchcock Railway, Delta Lady, You Can Leave Your Hat On, She Came in through the Bathroom Window, The Letter, You Are So Beautiful, Up Where We Belong and Cry Me A River.

The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer

SHAWN ‘The Harpoonist’ HALL and MATTHEW ‘The Axe Murderer’ ROGERS evoke much more than just grisly nautical imagery. Armed with an arsenal of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion, and a road-worn Telecaster, the duo kick out raw and primal blues in the tradition of a “decades-deep blues style” (Scott Brown, What’s up Yukon), while infusing the genre with a jolt of renewed energy.

“With a name like The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Vancouver-based duo is some sort of concept group based on a hypothetical love story between Captain Ahab and Lizzie Borden.”  (Chris Oke, Yukon News)

The two met and bonded over music while recording a radio jingle.

The Wilson Pickers

The WILSON PICKERS are hitting the road this spring to launch their third album, "You Can’t Catch Fish From a Train". The Wilson Pickers play banjo, fiddle, harmonica and acoustic guitar-based songs that draw on bluegrass, folk, country and lots of other things. Special guest MISS EILEEN & KING LEAH

Recorded in the round at Church Farm Studios in Billinudgel, NSW over three days in February this year, the album returns The Wilson Pickers to the bluegrass instrumentation and five-part harmony singing that propelled this side project to centre stage in 2009. Both their previous albums have been nominated for ARIA awards and the band are calling this release their best work yet.

Tim O'Brien

A singer of unusual clarity and originality, a self-taught multi-instrumentalist of rare ability, and an incisive songwriter, TIM O'BRIEN has, over the last 20 years, made a lasting mark on what some are calling “Americana” music through his innate musicianship and his wide-ranging tastes.

Born in Wheeling, West Virginia on March 16, 1954, singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist Tim O’Brien grew up singing in church and in school, and after seeing Doc Watson on TV, became a lifelong devotee of old time and bluegrass music. Tim first toured nationally with Colorado bluegrass band Hot Rize, which formed in 1978.
