Multi-award-winning Melbourne contemporary folk outfit, The Maes (formerly The Mae Trio) is the brainchild of sisters Maggie (banjo, guitar and vocals) and Elsie Rigby (fiddle, mandolin and vocals). Born into the arms of the Folk music community, both sisters were side of stage at their first folk festival when they were four weeks old and have been absorbing and exploring folk music since that time.
The Maes latest, self-titled record set for release in April 2019 is a return to the sisters’ folk music roots. Gentle, intimate and conversational, the album is an unadorned showcase of Maggie and Elsie’s superb song writing as well as honest, relaxed and stunning vocal and instrumental performances.
The album also features cello and harmony vocals by award-winning Brisbane musician, Monique Clare who regularly tours with The Maes and will be performing at this show.
Since 2014, The Maes have been full time touring in Australia and overseas, winning over audiences with their striking song writing, intricate instrumental arrangements and stunning vocal harmonies.
+ Special Guest Maizy Coombes who is an endearing violinist and Singer/songwriter with a contemporary folk sound beneath wholesome lyricism.
