Cat and Clint

catclint hi res2Cat & Clint are an Old Timey Duo featuring sweet vocal harmonies, 5-string banjo, fiddle and guitar. They are inspired and driven by Traditional Mountain Music and the passing down of fiddle tunes and ballads through generations of players from Australia and the USA. Whether it’s a murder ballad, a song of longing and heartbreak, a crooked fiddle tune or a rollicking banjo song, Cat and Clint endeavor to present this music with the authenticity and respect that it demands. The duo mix up their repertoire with Clints original songs and a good dose of vintage country blues.

During their first musical journey to the States nearly 10 years ago, Cat won a place in the Fiddle contest at world-renowned Galax Fiddlers Convention. During their most recent trip, they collected a stack of Traditional Tunes and Ballads from various regions in the South, in particular, South West Kentucky. The duo pay homage to the tradition bearers who shared their music so generously with them during their travels as well as their homes and hearts. Cat and Clint have recently released their new album on Vinyl which was recorded the analogue way, live on reel to reel. The duo perform regularly at Festivals, Bars, Woodchops, Markets, Shindigs, Hootenannys and have busked all around. They now reside in Blackwood, Vic, one of the big hotspots for Old Time and Bluegrass music in Australia.
