Angus Gill, Billy Miller & Pixie Jenkins at Palais Hepburn
CMAA Golden Guitar winner Angus Gill is joining forces with Oz rock legend Billy Miller (The Ferrets) for one night only at the Palais in Hepburn Springs on Saturday August 5, with special guest Australian fiddle playing icon Pixie Jenkins.
Angus Gill is one of the most exciting and prodigious acts on the scene, delighting audiences over the last 18 years with his distinctive voice, carefully crafted songs, well-honed showmanship and comic timing. He has an ARIA awards nomination, four critically acclaimed ARIA chart topping studio albums and eight #1 radio chart hits to his name. He has supported Kris Kristofferson, collaborated with international music legends such as Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale & Charles Esten and is the youngest Australian male artist to have performed on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.
Billy Miller is best known as the singer of The Ferrets (Don’t Fall in Love). He has been performing, composing and producing for 50 years, starting with acoustic spots at The Green Man and The Steak Cave in 1969, then 3 years in the cast of Jesus Christ Superstar (1972-75), where he met bass player Ken Firth and soon after they formed The Ferrets (1976-79). Most recently, Billy won (with co-writer Paul Kelly) the coveted APRA Song of the Year Award for the song Firewood & Candles, from Kelly’s Life is Fine record.
Pixie’s fiddle playing is uniquely Australian, and with his amazing energy, story telling and humour, he has become one of the most recognisable artists in the industry. He’s also one of Australia’s most eclectic and talented entertainers, playing roots, bluegrass and Irish folk styles with an incredible dexterity and finesse. Pixie has been a support artist and toured and recorded for some of the biggest names in the world, Bob Dylan to Cher; Jimmy Barnes to John Williamson and has been a studio musician on the recordings of 100s of other artists.
