Local three-piece Sydney or the Bush will transport you back in time on a musical journey through the early history of Australia, America and the British Isles with their authentic interpretation of the musical hits from 1650 to 1890. That’s right folks, you will mesmerised by music from the pre-electric era.

Syd Welling on a genuine 1890s concertina will thrill you with his throaty vocals as he brings to life the rebelliousness, joy and suffering of our ancestors. Well-known musician Fiona Ryan on tin whistle and flute creates a layer-cake of melodies and haunting overtones as well as her delicious vocal harmonies and Barry Shaw adds the modern touch with a skankin’ banjo-ukulele and enthusiastic chorus lines to create a big sound with these diminutive instruments.

Sydney or the Bush have just finished their new album London, Paris, New York, Sydney or the Bush, a broad eclectic mix from their huge repertoire. True to their authentic style, it is a genuine rootsy interpretation.
