Den Hanrahan

Friday the 16th of January from 8pm  |  Tix: TBA

Den Hanrahan is a singer/songwriter, storyteller, guitar, banjo and harp player, stomp-box stomper, front bar larrikin and outback romper. His raucous ballads collide all over the history of a misspent youth in a country with enough bushrangin’, pub-brawlin’, truck-drivin’, gold-pannin’, wombat-neckin’, mutton-stealin’ lore to fill a thousand more.

He plays like he drives, fast and ferocious, burning out motors and his good wife’s patience as he treks the country, rocking roadhouses, festivals and pubs. Bold and bodacious, his shows can be as alarmingly intimate as they are good old-fashioned fun.
With a swag of influences everywhere from Steve Earle, through Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Hank Williams to Ryan Adams, Hanrahan clearly worships at the church of Americana. But his Australian take on the time-honoured traditions of bluegrass and country rock have helped forge a new sound.
