Three Folks brings together three overlapping threads of folk music tradition, brought to you byTom Bolton, Patrick Evans, Chris Riseley, and Leigh Sloggett.
“Leigh Sloggett is a Melbourne based acoustic roots guitarist and singer songwriter who creates wonderful moods and grooves with catchy melodies and direct lyrical images. Swapping from lap to regular guitars he pays homage to earlier icons without being an imitator and the results leave an indelible and at times dark image. He’s a regular performer on the folk and blues circuit and definitely one to keep an eye out for.” Nick Charles, Rhythms
Patrick Evans has been making music his whole life. From his heartfelt original songs of Australian life to his unique treatments of traditional folk songs and fiddle tunes, Patrick uses his music to take audiences on a journey through his musical heritage and experiences, as well as a journey through some of Australian culture’s highways and byways.
“Tom Bolton’s knack for winsome-pretty, winning melodies is a cut above 1000 other guys and gals with an acoustic guitar that want to sing to us about love and its discontents. Instead of wasting our time, he fills it with small, steady wonders” Jack Rabid – The Big Takeover – New York
