DIRECT FROM THE CATSKILL MOUNTAINS FOR THEIR FIRST EVER TOUR OF OZ.
With special guest Caitlin Rose (USA)
Normally a band with three loved and acclaimed releases in Australia would have hit our golden shores by now, but not The Felice Brothers. They been too busy up in them hills doin’ what they do, and making the music that the righteous folks love. But finally we have convinced them to leave their comfort zones and take the long haul to Australia…and we may all never be the same again!
Ian and James Felice, Christmas Clapton, Greg Farley and Dave Turbeville make up The Felice Brothers band. They come to us from the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, where a homegrown sound has been working its way through the bloodlines for generations. Their rambling journey so far has brought them from busking in New York City subway stations, to tours across the Northern Hemisphere that have included enthusiastically received performances at music festivals, clubs, ballrooms, theatres and all between. They have hit the road hard on package tours in the last two years with their pals, Old Crow Medicine Show and Dave Rawlings Machine as well as many headline tours of their own.
Joining the band will be Nashville sweetheart Caitlin Rose on her first outing in Oz also. Her magnificent debut album of 2010, “Own Side Now” was released on Spunk and met with great joy by critic and savvy music lovers alike.
