Chloë & Jason Roweth

roweth bandChloë & Jason Roweth (vocals, electric guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, concertina) have been researching, reinventing and presenting Australian music for over twenty years, gaining great satisfaction from bringing almost forgotten songs back to life. Their vibrant five-piece line-up features the exceptional talents of Bill Browne (kit drums) and Matt Nightingale (bass), with special guest Jacqueline Bradley (vocals, fiddle, banjo). The band’s broad repertoire allows both the humour and depth of traditional Australian songs, yarns, bush poetry and dance tunes to shine through. These are the songs of the kitchen, the verandah, the shearers’ huts, the front bar of the local, and the campfire, in all their ornery detail. This band has a knack for carrying with them the warmth of real old-style bush entertainment, be it a country show or under lights - with a sting in the tail!
