Sensitive New Age Cowpersons
Wednesday 9th August at
Set to hit the road again after a roaring start in December 2005, with packed houses in many communities, the tour has already reached an audience of 1,234 throughout SA and VIC. This outstanding performance will travel to 23 more communities in May, August and November this year playing to audiences in WA, VIC, QLD & NSW who are sure to be toe-tapping and belly-laughing with the band that packs the classic rock songs with great original material, and delivers them all bluegrass style.
SNACS spokes cowperson, "Calamity" Jim Fisher, said the tour will be a beauty: "We're bringing a great show to the people of Australia. We're talking about hot banjo picking, even hotter harmony singing - and not quite so hot bodies…" he said. "…except for Stan Pede's of course," he added.
Calamity and his cohorts, Ian "Kid" Simpson, Stan Pede (Fred Kuhnl) and "Doc" Adams (Adam Gare) are just the cowpersons to deliver high-energy performances to some of Australia's finest regional venues.
Widely recognised as among the top music/comedy groups in the country, the Sensitive New Age Cowpersons have under their belts stints with Slim Dusty, Keith Urban and Paul Kelly, as well as a 2005 Golden Guitar nomination for their song, "Twangin' the Wires".
The Cowpersons' heady mix of some of the 'bentest' original country music ever written and eclectic repertoire of classic songs have taken them from their home town of Fremantle, WA, to headline performances at folk and country festivals around Australia. They've also been seen as far afield as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As musician / humorist Greg Champion has noted, they've proved "the hardest act to follow" he's ever "had the misfortune to come across".
The Sensitive New Age Cowpersons deliver an irresistible mix of mirth and musicianship, from their Golden Guitar-nominated epic medley from "The Sound of Music" and Stan Pede's hilariously romantic "Love is Lovely", to their classic "Daddy Wore a Mullet" and both their Australian National Anthems.
They'll have audiences begging for more laughs one minute and more hot licks the next. And all, of course… bluegrass style!!!
