Adam Miller Trio | Tuesday 12 December

With a career spanning just over 20 years, Adam Miller had early beginnings as a solo guitar virtuoso, that led to session playing, producing, mix & master engineer, university educator and everything in between, but his vision of creating instrumental guitar music has never lost focus. He has toured the globe, performing in the USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Denmark, The Netherlands, Sweden, Poland, Japan, Australia & even Afghanistan for the Australian and Allied Forces. Miller has shared stages with Les Paul, Tommy Emmanuel, Adam Levy, Matt Schofield, Mason Stoops, Josh Smith, Joey Landreth, Russell Morris, Ariel Posen, Tony McManus, Ben Gillies (Silverchair) amongst others. With glowing coverage in guitar & music press across the world, the 2002 Australian Fingerstyle Guitar Champion has his own signature model guitar, the “Adam Miller Redwood Rietbergen” from Nik Huber Guitars.

Half Nelson | Tuesday 19 December

Half Nelson are a unique mix of musicians, from a wide variety of backgrounds. From New Orleans Jazz to Free Improvisation and all manner of music along the way. This big band style combination has helped to forge a band dedicated to the era of jazz we love. The 1920's to the 40's. Half Nelson will take you on a midnight ride through the back alleys of New Orleans and the smokey Jazz dives of 1920's Harlem. From gritty Billie Holiday, to the smooth styling of Ella Fitzgerald. Add a shot of Louis Armstrong with a dash of Fats Waller and you have the energetic cocktail that is Half Nelson. 

Still full of energy, the band will have you wishing you could get up and dance.

Sheriden Nelson – Vocals
