High-energy UK Bluegrass band, Flats & Sharps, return to Australia and Petersham Bowlo for a special night of their unique blend of traditional and original Bluegrass music!
These five incredible young musicians, Kirk Bowman (banjo), Mikey Ponsford (mandolin), Josh Warner (guitar), Danny Hart (fiddle) and Liam Fitzharris (double bass), were a huge success when they were here for a brief tour last April when they played the National Folk Festival, Canberra, the Fairbridge Festival, WA, and an amazing gig at Petersham Bowlo.
Hailing from Penzance, Cornwall, in the South West of England, Flats & Sharps blur the lines between Bluegrass, Folk, & Pop, and are renowned for their own highly original songs as well as their blistering renditions of Bluegrass classics. They have come a long way from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds, to performing at the Proms in Hyde Park, London, and at scores of festivals throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe and Australia.
On this tour they will be launching a brand new CD, ‘The Bluegrass Album’, full of traditional Bluegrass numbers, “the material we grew up with and still perform to this day!”
“Flats and Sharps performances at Fairbridge Festival were nothing short of sensational. The standard of musicianship, rapport with audience and high entertainment value gathered more and more momentum as they dug into the event. Their final performance to over 1000 people on the final gig was one of the festival’s most significant events in recent years. I wouldn’t hesitate to book this band again in the future.” – Rod Vervest (Fairbridge Festival Artistic Director)
