Aus­tralian duo play­ing Trail­side Cafe & Inn

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES/COMMUNITY -

Aus­tralian duo Hat Fitz and Cara are play­ing the Trail­side Cafe & Inn in Mount Stewart tonight Hat Fitz is a “vet­eran” wild man of the blues scene in Aus­tralia.

He has a record 18 straight ap­pear­ances at By­ron’s East Coast Blues and Roots Fes­ti­val, a record that is not likely to ever be bro­ken, and one which bears tes­ti­mony to his amaz­ing live per­for­mances and pop­u­lar­ity with fes­ti­val go­ers.

Ir­ish-born folksinger Cara Robin­son draws on her soul back­ground - hav­ing toured Europe and the USA with singers such as Jamiro­quai and the hugely pop­u­lar Corinne Bai­leyRae - and although blessed with a sen­sa­tional voice she was not con­tent to be la­belled as ‘just a singer’.

She has taken to drum­ming du­ties as well as wash­boards, flute and tin whis­tle, some­times all at once.

“We’re re­ally ex­cited for this show,” says owner Pat Deighan.

“Ev­ery­one who saw them at East Coast Mu­sic Week in New­found­land couldn’t stop rav­ing about there live show.”

Tick­ets avail­able at www.trail­side.ca, Back Al­ley Mu­sic or call 902-676-3130.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with mu­sic at 8 p.m.
