Expect Americana, roots, and alt-country goodness with performances from some of Melbourne’s finest Southern-tinged musicians taking to the stage for Americana Fest 2016.
The stellar lineup includes Sarah Carroll, The Weeping Willows, Susannah Espie, Sean McMahon, Mick Daley, Waz E James and Jemma Nicole, along with special guests dropping in on the day. They’ll be celebrating Melbourne’s own Americana scene, in line with the annual Americana Music Association Festival and Conference that draws hundreds of international artists, including Australians, to Nashville where it’s hosted each year.
Americana Fest comes to The Retreat on Sunday August 21. Entry is by donation, with all proceeds going to promoting local Americana during the conference.
