Phil Bates.

Demon Bocca player who plays guitar, and sings in a warm, open-hearted style, all the songs you wish you knew.

Bill Casey.

Originally an NZ’er he took to Australiana like a duck to water.  He plays squeezebox and sings in Bushie style, which means you have to join in.

Hugh Merrell.

Singer-songwriter – always more than one layer to a Hugh song.  He is poetic and intense sometimes, and has a great sense of landscape.

Harold Von Finster.

Comes to us via the Yukon where he learned all the iconic poets and songsmiths.  He has a truly vast store of idiosyncratic songs and is a delightful singer/storyteller.

Tracy Dundon.

Our ‘cool cat’.  Tracy is a charismatic blues player with a sweet, neat guitar style and a growing repertoire of really classic songs.


Anousha is one of the Hunter’s true songbirds with a voice that sings from the heart.  She is exotic and captivating singing songs that entertain and matter.
