Great Aunt is an Americana/roots duo from Melbourne, Australia, rambling a musical line between the plaintive and the joyous.
Their music is raw and austere, simple and bold; full of stomping feet and clapping hands, chants and harmonies, whispered words, and soulful lament. Set somewhere between a gospel church in Louisiana and a dimly-lit speakeasy in Melbourne, listeners will hear tales of joy and grief, whiskey and wine, gratitude and purpose-seeking.
Formed in 2016, the duo is a collaboration between songwriter/instrumentalists Megan Bird (mandolin, guitar, vocals) and Chelsea Allen (double bass, vocals, percussion), and draws attitude and inspiration from their diverse musical backgrounds in punk, blues, jazz, and roots music.
Great Aunt are touring the east coast of Australia, including festival performances at Tamworth Country Music Festival, Groundwater Country Music Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Nimbin Roots, and Foggy Mountain Bluegrass Festival, as well as repeat performances and showcases in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.<br>
