The artist lineup for the Mullumbimby Music Festival 2012 was announced this week, with some familiar faces and some exciting new ones.
This year’s international guests include the legendary Jamaican vocal trio The Abyssinians with their nine-piece band, masterful blues and African roots musician Boubacar Traoré from Mali, Chicago’s gritty singer songwriter Joe Pug, the exclusive appearance of the passionate Chilean world music star Nano Stern and the fun and energy of Londoners Will and The People with their mix of reggae, pop and rock.
Returning to the festival are Husky with their classic pop and rich harmonies, Darren Percival with his band fresh from those amazing performances on The Voice, the gloriously infectious sensuality of Tinpan Orange and Mama Kin, roots, pop, reggae from Sydney live music stalwarts King Tide, as well as returning jazz legend Vince Jones with his band of grandmaster jazz musicians.
Festival newcomers hold lots of surprises including the swinging speakeasy charm of Melbourne outfit Clairy Browne and The Bangin’ Rackettes, the soulful cool of Melbourne’s Electric Empire, the indie sounds of Gossling and Winter People, the roots music of Mia Dyson, Joe Robinson, Liz Stringer and Hat Fitz & Cara Robinson and much more…
