ABOUT: Melbourne/Naarm based Folk Bitch Trio marries confessional songwriting and gentle instrumentation to craft a sound which will bring you both joy and heartache. Folk Bitch Trio’s Heide Peverelle, Jeanie Pilkington and Gracie Sinclair bring lush three part harmony, in a style drawing influence from contemporary and traditional folk, alt-rock and pop. FBT’s debut ‘Edie’ gained praise across radio and social media, receiving acclaim for holding Triple j-unearthed listeners captive with their ‘heavenly’ harmony. The trio delights audiences across Naarm with their intimate, melancholic sound, featured in the shopfront series for Milk! Records. Dinner can be ordered in advance or finger food on the night – 50 places only. Supported by Vanessa Craven and Lake Mist (Daylesford) and a Creswick act TBA.
