With four critically acclaimed studio albums and five number one radio singles, a Golden Guitar Award, a number one ARIA Australian Country Album, and an ARIA Awards nomination under his belt, Angus Gill is one of the most exciting and prodigious acts on the Australian Country Music scene.

Gill is one of the youngest Australians to have performed on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville TN, alongside Nashville TV star, singer-songwriter Charles Esten.

Add Pixie’s fiddle playing, which is uniquely Australian, and with his amazing energy, storytelling and humour, he has become one of the most recognisable artists in the industry. He’s also one of Australia’s most eclectic and talented entertainers, playing roots, bluegrass and Irish folk styles with incredible dexterity and finesse.

Pixie has been a support artist and toured and recorded for some of the biggest names in the world: Bob Dylan to Cher; Jimmy Barnes to John Williamson, and he has been a studio musician on the recordings for hundreds of other artists.

Catch these two great artists in one show at the Mullum Ex-Services Club on Saturday 6 August, from 8pm. Visit: www.mullumexservices.com.au for more information.
