Hat Fitz & Cara welcome you to a night of live music seeped in authentic realism. This dynamic duo is a unique combination that have skillfully combined their music of hill style country blues with old time folk. Their material is original yet crosses the boundaries as if written from a time once forgotten.
The night will include music from their acclaimed album Wiley Ways and performances of their new writings for the first time ever.
The new album is to be recorded by Australians highly regarded Jeff Lang.
“Wiley Ways won best blues album of the year 2013 Chain Awards Australia and Spiral Earth 2013 UK.”
"With Wiley Ways, Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson have crafted as genuine a blues record as you can hope to find in this day and age - simple, powerful, full of the inherent realism we've come to expect from these two, a stellar effort." Samuel J. Fell, Rolling Stone
HAT FITZ & CARA
“Before you utter the words Sea…. …..., let me put you straight. This Australian/Irish duo is something else and something special." Properganda Magazine
“Hat Fitz and Cara have the songs, the musical ability, the drive and the self belief to offer something refreshingly vibrant and new” Pete Feenstra, Get Ready To Rock.
Hat Fitz is a "veteran" wild man of the blues scene in Australia. He has a record 18 straight appearances at Byron's East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, a record that is not likely to ever be broken, and one which bears testimony to his amazing live performances and popularity with festival goers.
Cara draws on her soul background (she’s toured Europe and the United States with singers such as Jamiroquai and the hugely popular Corrine Bailey-Rae), and although blessed with a sensational voice she was not content to be labelled as ‘just a singer’. She has taken to drumming duties as well as washboards, flute and tin whistle, sometimes all at once.

"Aussie bluesman and Irish Songstress get married, form a band and make great music together. This shabby hill country blues oozes cool." Guitar & Bass
Cara Robinson's addictive voice is something that fans of roots music need in their lives." Guitarist

“Contemporary but at the same time as old as the hills” American Roots
“Aussie bluesman Hat Fitz and Irish-born folksinger Cara Robinson are a striking pair. He is a giant raggedy-bearded man, maybe the lost member of ZZ Top who lives deep in the woods and eats anything that moves. She is a petite blonde, who barely reaches his shoulders. He has a deep, gruff Howlin' Wolf-esqe voice while she dances with angels in her vocal. He plays wonderful resonator guitar. Her instrument is that sweet and soulful voice. It's all she needs…” Blues & Soul
