Folk duo hits the coast

BELLINGEN will host an unforgettable folk double act next week.

Elwood Myre is a Sydney-based Americana folk band of songwriter Elwood Myre and multi-instrumentalist Hunter Beasley.

Drawing influences from ’60s and ’70s American music and more modern contemporaries, Elwood Myre has crafted a sound all their own, featuring observant lyrics, rustic vocals and lush instrumentation and harmonies.

After spending the better part of 2015 on the road, receiving torrents of radio play nationwide, and being included in festivals such as Dashville Skyline and Mountain Sounds, Elwood Myre is hitting the road again before it heads back to the studio to record its second album.

The duo has expanded the line-up and is bringing a five-piece band along for the ride, giving its set an even more dynamic vibe, and giving everyone a taste of what might be expected on the next record.

See Elwood Myre when it performs at No 5 Church St, Bellingen, on Thursday.
