London-born, Melbourne-based musician Alison Ferrier is a prolific songwriter, talented guitarist and an active player in Melbourne’s vibrant music scene. Ferrier’s voice is unadorned and inviting, singing songs of nostalgia and the human condition, with observations on the universal emotions of everyday life.
She has delighted audiences at Port Fairy and Woodford Folk Festivals as well as numerous venues along the east coast. Her third studio album 'What She Knows' is an evocative and emotive slice of folk, country, blues and rock 'n' roll and has established Ferrier as a force to be reckoned with. Ali's latest project is blues trio Opelousas, with Anthony Shortte and Kerri Simpson. Performing at The Drunken Poet with Shorty on drums, you're in for a real treat, and will hear a few Opelousas songs as well as Ali's solo material.
The oft-neglected trophies from the dusty corners of the Steve Hoy Songbook have been lovingly cleaned into gleaming ornaments to song by The Subliminals – Mark Ferrie and Scotty Martin, and Hoy himself. The in demand rhythm masters and Hoy play The Drunken Poet on Sunday April 25th from 6:30 – 8:30, hours so civilised the only excuses for non-attendance would be injury or illness. Tunes hummable, drinkable and toe tappin’, a show for the discerningly appreciative Drunken Poet audience.
