Luna Junction can be found at the heart of West End’s burgeoning ‘Gypsy-Folk’ scene, playfully juggling musical genres, instruments and influences to weave a colourful tapestry of traditional and original music.

With an album in the pipeline and a string of gigs booked up and down the coast after their success at Byron Blues festival busking comp earlier this year, this wraggle-taggle bunch of buskers have taken time out from the streets of Brisbane to record their much anticipated debut. Set for release later this year, the band is also making plans for an album launch tour via Sydney and Melbourne.

Still frequenting the west end markets to get their weekly dose of family entertaining, 2011 has seen Luna Junction perform at various Brisbane venues and festivals including Winter Solstice, Friends of Folk and Southbank’s Buddha Birthday celebration.

For the past two years singer-songwriter Shani Forrester has been busking and ‘jamming’ with various travellers and locals in Brisbane’s cafes, backyards, bars and marketplaces, developing a strong following and building a unique repertoire, whilst searching for her perfect musical companions.

See Luna Junction at The Sheoak Shack on Saturday.
