Sip & Savour is a festival celebrating everything that’s good about specialty beers and ciders – including the music that goes with it – happening at Sydney’s historic Carriageworks as part of Sydney Craft Beer Week.
Melbourne folk-inspired band, Husky, lead the entertainment, hot off sold-out shows around the country and notable for their victory in Triple J’s Unearthed competition as well as their ARIA-nominated debut album Forever So.
Joining them are local indie-rock outfit Castlecomer who combine elements of folk, pop and rock to create some of the catchiest tunes coming out of the Aussie music scene. Known for their infectious energy on stage, these boys will fit right into the Sip & Savour festival atmosphere.
Twenty-year-old Gordi will also take the stage with her signature brand of folk-pop that exudes maturity beyond her age. Bringing with her heartfelt lyrics and captivating melodies this young singer-songwriter is bound to catch everyone’s attention.
If folk music is not for you, the organisers have you covered with the additions of Lupa J and DJ Kate Munroe. A recent finalist in Unearthed with her layered alt-pop tunes, Lupa J blends classical violin with electronic elements to create songs that are both fresh and yet comfortingly familiar.
Monroe has played every major club in Australia, all while contributing to the ARIA dance charts for the past 15 years, and it’s obvious that both her music knowledge and ability to control a dance floor are unmatched, so expect Sip & Savour to really go off when she hits the stage. (JA)
