Roots duo Method (aka Bill Jacobi and Frank Corby) come out of the blocks again over the next few weeks for another bout of studio time and a run of gigs across the northern rivers and SE Queensland.
With open tuned and lap slide guitars twisting their way around evocative soundscapes and a rich tapestry of textured rhythms from the drum kit, Bill Jacobi and Frank Corby bridge the gap between Americana and the Celts, evoking the journey roots music has made across the Atlantic and Pacific to end up with a uniquely downunder sound.
With three critically acclaimed CDs to their name, hundreds of gigs under their belt and a career spanning more than 15 years, they have gouged a rootsy acoustic groove across the Australian musical landscape.
In Bill’s own words: ‘Method makes music that somehow manages to look back at a wealth of musical tradition, have a good poke around and then turn and run the other way.’
Residing at opposite ends of the state means these guys have to make the most of their time together.
You can catch them this Thursday October 17 at The Rails,
Friday October 18 at The Brunswick Hotel,
and next Thursday October 24 at The Beach Hotel in Byron Bay,
and next Friday October 25 at The Eltham Pub.
