Australian duo Sadie & Jay write exquisitely crafted original songs with origins in the Anglo-Celtic tradition travelling through contemporary Australian folk and roots. They perform beautiful songs with exceptional vocals and glorious harmonies playing intricate finger style guitar and double bass.

This year they present songs from their third release, ‘A Passing of Seasons,’ an album rich in Australian history, bursting with colour, texture and spirited characters! This couple love to play to an intimate crowd where the stories of the songs can best be told. Some songs invite a chorus from the crowd, others draw intense listening or a fit of giggles!
