In the words of Bruce Elder from the Sydney Morning Herald “he plays guitar like an angel!”


Melbourne's soulful, alt country troubadour, Rick Hart, brings his bag of heartfelt, melody soaked, harmony laden treats to the Drunken Poet on Sunday 28th February.

Joined by beautiful tones of Vanessa Hart, they'll be delivering two sets of songs from Hart's forthcoming record, songs written while in lockdown and many faves from his back catalogue. Transcending the lines of genre, encompassing elements of country, folk, soul, bluegrass and blues to produce a sound all his own.

For The Country Record said "Hart is a refreshing counterpart to the plethora of male singers who have gone awry of country tradition. Hart is the perfect antidote to whatever bro-hangover still looms over us".
