Interviews

“We got nominated to be a part of the [Folk Alliance] showcase at the National Folk Festival last year. I’d never been to The National so it was more just going along and being part of it – we didn’t really realise it was a competition as such. So we went up and played a couple of songs and at the end they said “you guys are the winners”. It was kind of weird and we didn’t really know what we got. But it’s been amazing working with them – they’re super helpful”Kaurna Cronin chats to Gareth Hugh Evans. Interview here
