Only 4 sleeps ’til MOTH!
Our youngest line up yet.
What: At MOTH we are committed to showcasing young, up and coming singer songwriters, this months line up of new artists appearing at the Red Hill Pavilion are Melbourne based singer songwriter Jackson McLaren who will headline and support will be young duo Charm of Finches, with Somers-based singer songwriter Jeff Wall opening the night.
At the early age of 17 Warnambool’s Jackson McLaren’s folk-inflected songcraft had caught the ear of Josh Pyke, who produced Jackson’s debut self-titled EP. A move to Melbourne later, the breakthrough came with ‘A Whole Day Nearer’ from 2011’s Mirrors and Strings EP. In 2013 it was followed by the haunting single ‘Some of My Friends’ – a waltz-time tribute to the way that life changes us all, driven by an insistent fiddle and a melody Mumford & Sons would have killed for – and now McLaren and his trusty sidemen, the Triple Threat, have recorded their debut full length album: Songs to Greet the Dawn. Produced by John Castle (Josh Pyke, Washington, Gossling) the album maps the development of one of Australia’s most exciting young songwriters.
Support act Charm of Finches are the new kids on the folk block. Literally. Aged 12 and 14
Tasty food and local wines and beer will be available and don’t forget ‘AfterMoth’ at the Long Table for drinks and nibbles from 10.30 – Midnight.
