Shane Howard of folk rock group Goanna is a prolific Australian songwriter, deeply admired and respected for his integrity and commitment to music. After 30 years of singing, writing and journeying the globe, he has consolidated his voice to become an important addition to the evolving folklore of modern song. The Shane Howard Trio features the mastery of Howard’s musical companions Ewen Baker (Fiddle, Mandolin) and John Hudson (Guitar, Dobro). These three will fill the Spiegeltent with songs full of heart and poetry that are deep and dark, yet illuminated by great shafts of light.
The Trio will be joined by special guest Yirrmal, a new generation of Yolngu artist from North-East Arnhem Land. He melds traditional and contemporary music with artistry and passion.
