Australia‘s fantastic The Mae Trio – after opening shows this month for Old Man Luedecke and Gordie Sampson – will be doing their own special matinée show at The Carleton on Saturday, July 23rd. Show time will be 2 PM and $5 cash at the door will get you in. Please note, because this is an afternoon affair, you’ll be able to bring your music-loving under-agers and we definitely encourage you to do that!
The Mae Trio are a young, contemporary folk band from Melbourne, Australia. Since the release of their critically acclaimed album Housewarming in 2013, they have made a vibrant splash in the international acoustic music scene across Australia, UK and America. This has included appearances at Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, Americana Music Festival in Nashville, Cambridge Folk Festival in England, Perthshire Amber Festival in Scotland and Woodford, Port Fairy and The National Folk Festivals in Australia.
Humbly authentic, dynamic and striking, the trio write powerful original songs, accompanying them on cello, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and ukulele and stunning three part harmonies. Their disarming on-stage presence and originality makes for a spellbinding and refreshing live experience.
2016 sees The Mae Trio embark on their first tour of Canada as well as the upcoming release of their Nashville-recorded, second full-length album, September.
