Sydney if you’ve been hanging out for your monthly does of bluegrass goodness, never fear – Bluegrass @ Yulli’s have announced their April show for next Wednesday the 27th.

As always the night will kick off with an all-in jam from 6pm where anyone can bring down an instrument and pick their way through a bunch of bluegrass and old-time standards. The jam still remains one of my favourite things to do each month – it gives players the opportunity to play with some of Sydney’s best regardless of their skill level.

Then from 8pm we’ll be treated to a performance from local bluegrass, old-time and Americana band The Willing Ponies. Fronted by Ricky Pannowitz and Paul Abrahams, The Willing Ponies are guaranteed to entertain.

At the end of last month’s Bluegrass @ Yulli’s the organisers announced that they’d managed to lock in The Tawny Owl Stringband, something that got us very very excited.

The Tawny Owl Stringband is the new trad and old-timey project from Lucky Luke (Lucky Luke & The Shooting Stars), Jimmy Daley (The Morrisons) and Anna McInerney (Oh Willy Dear, The Morrisons). I caught the trio at a recent FolkSwagon and was really impressed with their sound and repertoire – definitely a band to watch over the coming months

This month’s Bluegrass @ Yulli’s takes place upstairs at Yulli’s restaurant in Surry Hills, Sydney next Wednesday 16th September. As always the night will kick off at 6pm with a jam where everyone is invited to bring down their banjo, guitar, mando and fiddle to join in followed by The Tawny Owl Stringband show from 8pm.

Watch the New Old Crow Medicine Show Video “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer”

Humour has always been a big part of Old Crow Medicine Show’s music and the perfect example of this from their last album is “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer”. The track has just been released as a single (which also features unreleased B-sides “Mother Church” and “The Warden”) and has a brand new video which we think captures the spirit of the track perfectly.

Check out the video for “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer” and see if you can spot the cameo from Timber and Steel favourite Dom Flemons:
