Already firmly established on the Australian festival circuit, Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson have arrived in the UK and Europe to entertain audiences with their foot stomping blend of hill country and delta blues that is given a startling and exciting new direction with Cara’s Irish roots. As well as showcasing songs from their critically acclaimed album ‘Beauty and the Beast’ the charismatic duo will be performing a wealth of new material enhancing their reputation as one of the best live blues acts around. Both artists live their music, giving it a gritty and genuine warmth. Their lives and musical backgrounds were half a planet apart until they met and forged a unique musical partnership. The ‘wild man’ of Australian blues, Fitz hails from Queensland, plays guitar and banjo whilst singing the blues with a huge physical presence that harks back generations to the blues greats like Son House and Charley Patton. Not to be outdone, Cara plays drums, flute, washboard and whistles as well as singing. Whilst pulling her Irish roots into the mix she also lends her love of old time swing to their compositions. Their own songs and tunes are crafted by them both to produce a sound totally original yet firmly rooted in many traditions that evokes raw and powerful emotions.
