Off the back of a sold out Tamworth Country Music Festival show, CMAA Golden Guitar winner Angus Gill is hitting the road with Australian fiddle playing icon Pixie Jenkins for a string of must see shows!
“I really can’t wait to hit the road and do a tic tac toe, 3 in a row, full bore, full throttle, full tilt tour again! Pixie and I toured several times last year and the show we’re doing has been an absolute blast. We often forget there’s only two of us onstage. It’s a high energy show with plenty of laughs, almighty fiddle playing, some tender and poignant moments. There’s really something for everything,” says Gill.
In addition to the shows with Pixie, Gill is doing an exclusive run of shows with Golden Guitar winner Kevin Bennett (The Flood) and US Americana legend Kevin Welch at Newcastle, Dungog, Campbelltown and Petersham. He is also playing a one off show at the Caravan Club in Archie’s Creek on Saturday 15th April with Oz rock legend Billy Miller from the band The Ferrets, best known for their hits Don’t Fall in Love, Janie May.
“Kevin Bennett and I have been working together over the last 6 months, writing and recording our song Listen to the Country. We were delighted to be nominated for a Golden Guitar for this song and even had the Prime Minister praise and quote it in an interview on Ch 10’s The Project. I’ve worked with Kevin Welch a few times over Zoom and we really hit it off talking all things songs and songwriting too. I can’t wait to do a run of intimate ‘writers in the round’ style shows with KB and KW in May.”
“I’ve also been working with Billy Miller and the members of Paul Kelly’s band on an upcoming Angus Gill & Seasons of Change second album. We’ve had so much fun making music together, we may even preview a few of our new songs, so the gig at the Caravan Club will be a right hoot.”
Gill is one of the most exciting and prodigious acts on the scene, delighting audiences over the last 18 years with his distinctive voice, carefully crafted songs, well honed showmanship and comic timing. He has an ARIA awards nomination, four critically acclaimed ARIA chart topping studio albums and eight #1 radio chart hits to his name. He has supported Kris Kristofferson, recorded with international music legends such as Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale & Charles Esten and is the youngest Australian male artist to have performed on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.
Pixie’s fiddle playing is uniquely Australian, and with his amazing energy, story telling and humour, he has become one of the most recognisable artists in the industry. He’s also one of Australia’s most eclectic and talented entertainers, playing roots, bluegrass and Irish folk styles with an incredible dexterity and finesse. Pixie has been a support artist and toured and recorded for some of the biggest names in the world, Bob Dylan to Cher; Jimmy Barnes to John Williamson and has been a studio musician on the recordings of 100s of other artists.
