Bluegrass @ Yulli’s for July 2016

Oh Willy Dear

If you’re looking to keep warm on these cold July nights in Sydney then you can’t go past this month’s edition of Bluegrass @ Yulli’s.

The regular jam and performance night will be taking place as usual upstairs at Yulli’s in Surry Hills on Wednesday 20th July.

At 6pm it’s an all in jam where you’re invited to bring along your instrument and play along with some of Sydney’s finest musicians – or just watch on if being an audience member is more your thing.

Then from 8pm the feature artist will take to the stage – and this month is Timber and Steel favourites Oh Willy Dear which we’re so excited about.

As always Bluegrass @ Yulli’s is free entry. For more information check out the official Facebook event here.

Watch the New Matthew and the Atlas Video “On A Midnight Street”

The latest single for English nu-folk band Matthew and the Atlas is the epic track “On A Midnight Street”. Taken from their exceptional new album Temple, the track stems from songwriter Matt Hegarty’s fears about climate change.

“The song is an attempt at writing about climate change from the emotional perspective of being a new father,” Hegarty explained. “Trying to understand some of the apathy around it, hopefully without sounding too moralistic.”

Check out the video for “On A Midnight Street” below:

Listen to the New Colin Jones & The Delta Revue Single “Mama Don’t Weep”

If you’ve been down to regular Sydney night Folkswagon (Wednesday’s at Cafe Lounge) over the last six months there’s a very good chance you’ve been blown away by their amazing house band Colin Jones & The Delta Revue.

The dirty blues band fronted by the enigmatic, gravelly voiced Colin Jones, get rave reviews wherever ever they go and now their delighting their fans with a brand new single “Mama Don’t Weep”.

“It’s a song that has stuck with me,” Jones said of the track. “It’s a song about evolution, a song about rebirth. You’ll get it when you hear it.”

Check out “Mama Don’t Weep” below:

Friday Folk Flashback

“Bury Me Not On The Lone Prairie” – Johnny Cash

After hearing One Up, Two Down do this old cowboy song I had to hunt out some other versions.

Watch the Hilarious David Brent Video “Lady Gypsy”

David Brent

This was just too hilarious not to share. Comedian and actor Ricky Gervais is reviving his defining character from The Office, David Brent, in an upcoming mockumentary film David Brent: Life On The Road.

Those familiar with David Brent will know that he’s an aspiring musician and “chilled out entertainer” so to promote the film Ricky Gervais has released a hilarious music video for the folky “Lady Gypsy”. This pokes fun as much at folk music as it does David Brent.

Check out the video below:

Watch the New Lazy Colts Video “Twenty Two”

Sydney based indie-folk band Lazy Colts (previously known as Lacey Cole and the Lazy Colts) have just released their brand new video “Twenty Two”. The track is taken from Lazy Colts’ upcoming debut album Trojan which is set for release on the 5th August.

“Essentially, “Twenty Two” is about the grand undying sentiments that hallmark your first cracks at a serious relationship,” lead singer Lacey Cole explains. “It’s about perspective, initially, the lack of it, and then the revelation that the reason you’re in your situation – however great or bad it is – is also the reason you will get through it: you’re only 22 years old.”

Check out the video here:

Lazy Colts will be touring Trojan with a series of shows in August – check out all the dates below:

Saturday 6th August – Wesley Anne, Melbourne, VIC
Sunday 7th August – Labour In Vain, Melbourne, VIC
Saturday 13th August – Sancho’s Dirty Laundry, Canberra, ACT
Saturday 20th August – The Bearded Lady, Brisbane, QLD
Saturday 27th August – Franks Wild Years, Thirroul, NSW
Sunday 28th August – The Oxford Circus, Sydney, NSW
Sunday 4th September – Hotel Blue, Katoomba, NSW

Watch the New Henry Wagons Video “Head Or Heart”

Henry Wagons

Henry Wagons has just released the latest video from his solo album After What I Did Last Night…, the rollicking “Head Or Heart”.

“Nashville is a town full of some of the finest in music and booze. A musician’s paradise!” Henry Wagons explains. “It’s the perfect storm for getting in a real mess. “Head or Heart” is a song about that time of the night when it becomes difficult to decide between your rational mind, or what’s below the belt. The head or the heart.”
