Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

THE Air­lie Beach Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic’s ‘Orig­i­nal Sun­days’ will be loud and live from Mag­nums Ho­tel next Sun­day, March 29.

This on­go­ing event, de­signed to pro­mote both the up­com­ing fes­ti­val and an in­cred­i­ble tal­ent pool of lo­cal acts, is sure to be a crowd-puller once again.

Next Sun­day’s line-up in­cludes Ram­pant Rose, Matt Damnage, Wing It, Matt An­gell and Fox n Hound.

Ram­pant Rose will be kick­ing the event off at 1pm, with her earthy ori- gi­nal folk style ac­com­pa­nied by blind flute player ‘Sir Charles’.

Jour­ney man Matt Damnage will take to the stage at 2pm, treat­ing fans to a dis­play of skil­ful gui­tar play­ing mixed with his unique style of lyri­cal story-telling.

Re­cent ar­rivals to the Whit­sun­day scene ‘Wing It’ will ap­pear at 3pm to bring up the tempo for the rest of the event.

This duo have been rocking the Mackay mu­sic scene for the past few years, with their fast-paced drums and gui­tar riffs.

Matt An­gell will be back by popular de­mand at 4pm, play­ing more ori- gi­nals from his re­cently re­leased al­bum ‘Are You Ready’.

A for­mer lo­cal, An­gell is well known for his hy­brid blend of al­ter­na­tive coun­try, blues, roots and folk.

Four-piece band Fox n Hound will be bring­ing the show home from 5pm with their first hit out for the Air­lie Beach Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic since last year’s Battle of the Bands.

Event or­gan­iser An­drew Pat­tin­son said this lo­cal act were sure to “get the pun­ters off their seats” with their up­beat style and rock n’ roll on­stage an­tics.

Over­all, Mr Pat­tin­son said he was re­ally ex­cited to present an­other fresh crop of orig­i­nal singer / song writ­ers to the town­ship of Air­lie Beach.

“We are re­ally start­ing to un­earth some tal­ented mu­si­cians and com­bine it into a very laid back af­ter­noon,” he said.
