Out of Abingdon is Warwick Hargreaves on guitar and vocals and Tina Fullerton on double bass and vocals. The duo has a passion for jazz, blues, beautiful ballads and all things that groove.

The pair’s captivating style includes interpreting and blending old favourites with new and original material; the resulting sound is refreshing, their musical rapport, passion and feel are infectious.

With their second European tour including France, Germany, Holland and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland planned for August 2012, Out of Abingdon are fast becoming a must-see act.

Out of Abingdon independently released their long-awaited debut CD Journeys in July 2011 after building a solid following playing hundreds of live shows over three years.

A tour to the UK followed; performances in London and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival were highly acclaimed. Journeys has been receiving great reviews and radio airplay Australiawide through community radio stations and worldwide through an increasingly international audience.

Out of Abingdon’s reputation continues to grow as a captivating live music experience and unique voice in Australian music and 2012 is looking to be a big year for this Brisbane-based duo, already including performances at the Basement in Sydney and the Brisbane Jazz Club.

An upcoming live album release and international tour are planned for August/September including a return 10-day season at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Be sure to catch on to this bewitching sound this Saturday at the Sheoak Shack in Fingal Head.
