In 2007, PETE DENAHY released a song called “Sort Of Dunno Nothin” which went viral on YouTube and radio stations around Australia. The song gained so much attention, it became better known than Pete Denahy himself, who until then was famous mostly in the wine cask areas of small town supermarket bottle shops. His fame has spread moderately since and he now enjoys being recognized in some of the larger shopping centres.
His comedy material includes such songs as The Petrol Head Fly, The Shopping Trolley, Bat In The Cave, The Target Song, Toilet Paper, Poker Machine and You Actually Burn More Calories Eating Celery Than You Get From The Celery Itself.
Pete's love of bluegrass music has taken him to Japan and the United States, making friends and picking tunes and songs with some of the best.
His main instruments are guitar and fiddle, although he also plays mandolin and some banjo.
He has several bluegrass releases including Wishbone Road and Singin' Shoes.
He takes groups of Australians to Japan and the USA to explore bluegrass and country music abroad and loves touring Australia with his own show of comedy (family friendly) and Bluegrass music.
Make sure you catch this show here in Bittern. This is a show you don’t want to miss!
Afternoon tea (including gluten & dairy free) will be provided and enjoyment is guaranteed.
KHRISTIAN MIZZI was greatly enjoyed by the Picnic Festival audience and it is wonderful to welcome him back for a concert of his own. Khristian is 2017's ‘Troubadour artist of the Year’. He writes intimate, heartfelt Folk songs comparable to music of the early 70's songwriters. With award winning songs and a voice 'like a warm hug', Khristian pulls audiences into his sphere with his vivid imagery and poetic songs.
Mizzi’s meandering melodies and urban hymns of longing, social change & ballads from the far reaches of country Australia along with a dexterous picking style, make Khristian Mizzi a complete and unique artist who is renowned for his intimate and compelling performances.
His 2017 self titled EP has had a hugely positive public response for its authenticity, maintaining the spirit of the songs as they are experienced during his live appearances.
Supper will be provided, including gluten/dairy free.
TIM WOODZ is returning after another very well received set at the Picnic Festival. With his delightful blend of humour and sensitivity, it is safe to say that Tim is a unique artist, and one who is very popular with our Bittern audiences.
Winner of the Maldon Ministerial award (2011), and touring with iconic musician Tex Perkins and Ruckman for the Rockdogs, Tim Woodz is “all grins and silly anecdotes” as he performs Jazzy folk tunes with a quirky narrative. Tim’s songs provoke beautiful, nostalgic and charming imagery with energetic musical warmth.
This will be a very special gathering, in an outdoor setting with a BBQ lunch prior to the show. Sausages, Tea & Coffee provided, but you can also BYO. Note the earlier than usual starting time to accommodate mealtime. This will be a FUN FAMILY DAY OUT
LOU BRADLEY is one of a kind!!! We are delighted to be welcoming Lou back for a second visit. There is no easy way to label Lou's music, because she doesn't limit her creativity. You will hear a bit of Country, Folk, Rock... melancholy and feisty! She will have you laughing and also bring you to tears. Her first album, Love Someone, was acknowledged by achieving the status of ARIA nomination finalist. Now, three more albums and many many concerts later, Lou will bring new music and her own kind of sunshine to delight our Bittern audience.
CLINT WILSON is an acoustic troubadour, part of the new wave of Australiana artists whose influences draw from folk, Americana and alt country. Drawing from artists such as Paul Kelly, Crowded House, and The Church, Clint brings local context and real world experiences to his music, giving a suburban authenticity that artists like The Go-Betweens, You Am I and Triffids pioneered in the 80s and 90s in Australia.
