Ladies & Gentlemen - The Acfields!
Bound by two distinct voices that have obviously spent many a childhood car trip harmonizing with each other, sibling songsters Dan and Hannah Acfield have been aptly described as “the ying to each other’s yang” (Scene Magazine, 2012). Despite living in separate cities (Brisbane and Melbourne, respectively), the pair have left their previous solo careers behind and created a colourful blend of folk-pop and alt-country as ‘The Acfields’, and have been rewarded with groundswell and national acclaim.
With music in their blood, it was hardly surprising that not one, but two Acfields would choose to pursue a living making music. Their grandfather Ron Acfield had certainly paved the way for them as a prominent bass player who performed with acts like Cat Stevens, Louis Armstrong and other numerous Australian and international acts.
Between them, Dan and Hannah had already released five solo EPs and toured both nationally and internationally. Hannah was described by Gotye to have “an expressive voice that engages you instantly”, and was nominated as a MusicOz finalist three years in a row, while Dan’s song ‘Red, Yellow and Blue’ was deemed by Triple J’s Alex Dyson to be “one excellent tune”, and earned him the spot of ‘Indie Act of the week’ on Rage.
Now the Actfields are coming to Birregurra’s Royal Mail Hotel on Friday 5th February, thanks to your Birregurra Community Arts Group.
This will be a MUST NOT MISS show. A little different to our usual Parlour Gigs, there is just a $5.00 cover charge on the night that goes directly to the artist.
