Skip Gorman (USA)

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.

Kav Temperley

One of Australian music’s defining voices and enigmatic songwriters, KAV TEMPERLEY of Eskimo Joe has announced his debut solo release, Hope Street EP out September 9 on Inertia Music. Hope St proves a defining document in both Temperley’s life and career – a demarcation line between relationships of yonder and a voice masked behind the rock’n’roll facade. Joining Kav on his Hope St tour is Perth-based folk songstress LUCY PEACH who features on the EP's first two tracks.

Of his new EP, Temperley admits, “This is as honest as I get,” he laughs, with a discernible hint of uncertainty. “It’s terrifying! But it’s also liberating. There was no censoring – no towing a particular line. I suppose you could say Hope St is me burying my 20s and elegantly dancing into my late 30s.

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.

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.
