A little about…
Jethro Pickett is an Australian singer, songwriter and producer. He’s gearing up for a new release this year with a new sound but his roots remain firmly in the organic sounds of classic folk and spacious wanderings. His last release was co produced with guitar maestro Shane O’Mara was put out by Phill Calvert’s (The Birthday Party) Behind The Beat Records. Jethro has toured with various bands all over the world and has a big pool of experience to delve into and inspire from. Expect some great tales from this prince of freak folk.
A little bit about…
From one side of Bass Strait to the other, Teresa Dixon writes and plays gritty alt country & folk songs of love, loss & hope. With her debut album Bass Strait under her belt, released in 2018 and recorded in her old home on the Bass Coast of Victoria, she has migrated further south and is now based in the Huon Valley, Tasmania. Dixon’s new self-produced album ‘Way Down South’, recorded by Jethro Pickett right on the Huon River, tells stories of the healing power of nature, place and reflection with some self-deprecating songs about drinking and failed love thrown into the mix. It showcases her gravelly, honest voice and multi instrumental talents on banjo and guitar.
Teresa has played many of the country’s major folk festivals as a member of trad country-folk trio, The Stragglers and convict folk punk outfit The Dead Maggies. She has recently made an impact with her solo material at The Huon Valley Mid Winter Festival with her band Teresa Dixon & The Deep Blue Sea, and will also be performing at the upcoming Cygnet Folk Festival, Pangaea & supporting Lee Kernaghan.
She will be joined on stage by renowned Tasmanian violinist Hannah Morrell, Teresa’s good friend and band mate from the Stragglers and The Dead Maggies.
