Ancient Animal Orchestra and Mon Shelford team up for a night of atmospheric folk and soul, including never-to-be-repeated collaborations across each other's sets.

Ancient Animal Orchestra transports audiences beyond their immediate surroundings and immerses them in music and storytelling, all in their bid to expand the realms of folk and improvised genres. 2019 saw the release of their debut album, 'Retreat', and in 2020 they put out Fairhaven’, an EP featuring improvised music recorded in a living room along the Great Ocean Road. 2021 saw a performance at MONA and the beginnings of their next release taking shape in the studio.

Kiwi born Melbournian Mon Shelford is a proudly multicultural woman, a spokesperson of spirit who possesses the ability to speak fluently and directly to the soul via song. Not only gifted with a voice that transcends the need for lyrical content, Mon skillfully crafts her songs eloquently, with messages that are worth listening to.
