Tuesday 21 June: Songwriter's Showcase

Join us as we celebrate the Troubadour's storied legacy of breaking emerging songwriters with a crop of some of the finest talent around. This week featuring:
Stead is a musician of the old traditions. A singer songwriter and crafter of elegant, lo-fi songs that seem to fuse soulful folk, pop, Mediterranean vibes and underground, understated lounge jazz with healthy disregard for convention. Lilting ballads filled with romanticism, disarming honesty and wistful philosophy born of the experience of life.
Avery Florence
She has the voice of an angel, matched with soulful yet haunting melodies and lyrics. Avery Florence always connects to an audience with her sense of humour and genuine persona. She has been compared to Norah Jones soft quality with Dolly Parton's twang.
Rob Godfrey
Dark acoustic love songs with a jazz influence.

Thursday 23 June: Think Country Presents: The CAINS | Meaghan Blanchard | Lisa Wright | Amy Westney

Taylor, Madison and Logan Cain are not only singers and songwriters, but also multifaceted entertainers and musicians who play guitar, piano, bass, harmonica and more. It all started when eldest sibling, Taylor, learned her first song on the piano at 5 years old and, a few years later, began teaching her younger siblings to sing harmony with her. A few years of practice and three college degrees later, the group has banded together as The Cains to write, record and release their own original music.

Meaghan Blanchard is a gifted guitarist with her own blend of light claw hammer/finger picking style; paired with a crystal pure voice and a unique ability to write and tell stories through charming character driven songs.
