When I interviewed Annie Hamilton from Sydney’s Little May recently I made a promise to her that I would refer to their band’s genre as “ghost folk”. So here goes:

This Sunday ghost-folk trio Little May will be taking to the stage for Timber and Steel’s Sunday afternoon matinée show at The Workers Club in Melbourne. The band are currently touring their new single “Hide” and are coming off the news that they will be playing at Laneway Festival in Sydney having won triple j’s latest Unearthed competition.

Joining Little May at The Workers Club this Sunday will be local songstress Al Parkinson and folk-rock four piece Crooked Saint. The music kicks off at 1.30pm with tickets just $15 on the door.
