Sadie and Jay, Maleny house concert August 5

Sadie and Jay house concert

Brisbane based duo Sadie & Jay are our house concert guests on Sunday 5th August after recently returning from their second successful tour in the UK. The duo is a creative combination of a deeply traditional folk musician (Jay), with a jazz, blues and roots singer (Sadie). Their songs feature the duo’s vocal harmonies, Jay’s intricate finger style guitar, bouzouki and banjo and Sadie’s double bass. They are influenced by the storytelling nature of the Anglo-Celtic traditions and contemporary folk, blues and roots music which reflects in their collaborative songwriting.

Sadie & Jay recently spent six weeks performing and promoting their second album ‘Rogue Folk’ at folk clubs, house concerts and festivals in the UK. They were thrilled to be guests performers at Upton upon Severn and The Great North Folk Festivals. They won The Great North’s ‘World Around Us’ song competition with their A Capella piece “Song Already Written.”

The concert on August 5, which starts at 2pm, also features house band The Goodwills with guest musician Helen Rowe. Tickets are $15 at the door and afternoon tea will be available. Bookings are essential.

As we are travelling in July, the best way to book is to send Laurel an email goodwills <at> or through our contact page.

NB: Our June house concert guests Tin Star, Sadie & Jay and The Goodwills have all been booked to perform at the Maleny Music Weekend August 31 – September 2. Don’t miss Bob & Laurel’s other musical endeavour, as part of Maleny chamber choir ‘Tapestry’ – performing at this festival on Sunday September 2.   

Goodwills house concerts are sponsored by the Queensland Folk Federation
