Feature act of the Semaphore Music Festival
Knwon for their collaborative songwriting genuis and musical alchemy in the Hushes, Emily Davis and Cal Williams Jr will make a very different offering at the Wheaty this time. Sharing their latest solo original works, in this not to be missed Sunday arvo sojourn, both artists will step aside from The Hushes to show the calibre of their respective songwriting. The very thing that lured them towards each other in the first place.
Set Times: 4:30pm - Cal Williams Jr 6:00pm - Nigel Wearne
Packed with songs about love, crime, doin' time, raisin' hell and high-water, The Hushes launch their album 'Sunlight and Fire' live at The Wheatsheaf. This hearty foursome traverse the genres of blues and folk, gypsy and gospel, alt country and Appalachian bluegrass with a whole lotta onstage sass and growl.
