Hot Wings

Hot Wings

For a spicy end to Applefest 2019, expect Hot Wings to make things a little picante.

Lizzie Sedman’s guitar will shred right through the afternoon session, backed-up by Rob McPherson (guitar) and driven to extremes by Julia Watt (drums) and Scott Cherry (bass).

Is it swing? Is it rockabilly? Is it guitar boogie? Whatever bucket you put them in, you’ll taste the Tabasco with each guitar lick.

Are they from Melbourne, or some surf beach on the Northern shores of Mexico where the air is filled with the aroma of blue agave and each crashing wave is infused with lime and Poblano peppers? You be the judge.

For an early taste, check out this pumping track…

Feel them turn up the heat on-stage at Harcourt Applefest 2019: 3:30pm – 4:15pm, Saturday 9 March. You can warm yourself up with a look at the band’s own website,

King Stone

King Stone

King Stone pack the floor by playing great tunes with a back beat shuffle performed with gusto and love.

Can you feel it in the air? That’s the ska a-coming.

Here’s a snappy little clip of King Stone performing The Big Bamboo:

Maya Rose is a singer-songwriter from Castlemaine, Victoria.

You might remember Maya from Applefest a few years back. Or, you could recall the performances that won her Castlemaine’s Battle of the Bands, or maybe when she was runner-up of Freeza Push Start: Northern Country Regional.

Well, the now 20-year-old continues to mesmerise audiences with soulful vocals, moving lyrics and compelling sounds.

Word is, she might have a single and EP in the works too.

Here’s an old favourite, where Maya covers ‘Beautiful Lies’ by Birdy…

Maya will be on-stage at Harcourt Applefest 2019: 1:35 – 2.20pm, 9 March 2019.
