Tuneful duo delivers rare musical fusion at Rocky Glen
EN ROUTE to the Airlie Beach Music Festival, Phil and Trudy Edgeley will be showcasing their eclectic music for one afternoon only at the Rocky Glen this Sunday, October 27.
Inspired by iconic bands like Led Zeppelin and Bob Dylan, they describe their music as an intense fusion of folk, blues, roots and Latin sounds.
"Our music will be very different to what the audience has witnessed before," guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Phil Edgeley said.
"We put on a very original, varied and interesting performance."
As regulars on the Australian blues and roots scene, but also fans of international music, husband-and-wife act Phil and Trudy have incorporated sounds from across the globe into their gig.
"We encapsulate the dynamics of a great partnership and our interaction with the audience draws the listener into a new and exciting place."
Hailing originally from the Central Coast of NSW, they spend most of their time on the road, sharing their music around Australia and overseas.
One guarantee the charismatic duo can offer to their crowd is a gig unlike any other.
"The question we are asked most often following a performance is, 'what exactly do you call that?'
"The great thing about our set is if you don't like the first song, it doesn't mean you won't enjoy the second or third."
Freshly returned from a tour of the United States, they have integrated an array of instruments to form an exclusive sound.
Percussion, harmonica, ukelele and a distinct guitar combination of Churchill Acoustic, Tim Kill Weissenborn and National Steel has earned the Edgeley couple a reputation as fierce, soulful and sensitive musicians.
In The Blood is Phil Edgeley's third album and is the closest representation of his live performance to date.
"Phil and Trudy combine blues and roots with rhythmic patterns to make a powerful feast for the ears," Brian Fraser said.
Head down to the Rocky Glen at 2pm on Sunday afternoon to catch this unique blend of musical unification.
