Renowned Melbourne musician Andy Baylor and his Banksia Band will be performing tunes from ‘Down Where The Banksias Grow’, and giving you a little preview into the brand new album ‘The Old Southern Line’.
The band features a sweet string sound with the fiddles and violas of Sophia Dunn and Kate Connor, the mandolin, mando-cello and guitar of Sam Lemann, with Andy on electric surf, jazz, guitar, fiddle and vocals. This formidable front line is driven by percussionist/producer Denis Close’s exotic world percussion, the bass of Kain Borlase and Sharky Ramos’ masterful jazz drumming.
"As with all my albums over the years, I have committed myself to passionate, honest expression through poetry and music to tell something of the place and times I find myself living in. I love writing and playing music and even though I may naturally be a shy, fairly quiet person, when I play and sing I feel powerful, right where I should be and free to tell it like it is.”
