JHANA ALLAN w/ Market Lane + Dan Musil

$10 on the door

Jhana Allan is a singer/violin/mandolin player who explores themes of darkness and light, loss and acceptance. Having a wide range of experience playing in bands such as The Woohoo Revue and The Willie Wagtails, her original work is soulful folk with a country influence. Jhana draws on her roots of growing up in the big sky landscape of Northern NSW to create a genuine, honest and raw sound.

Supported by Dan Musil, who plays slide guitar like no one else.

Shared with characteristic humility and love of improvisation, Dan’s music combines haunting instrumental slide guitar pieces with boisterous songs of social satire; traditional Celtic tunes with stomping acoustic blues, lullabies & eucalyptus-infused musical meditations – the provocative and the calming.

Dan has performed at venues and festivals around Australia and internationally as a solo artist, and as a member/collaborator with artists including Marissa Quigley, Lucy Wise, Tim Guy, Power & Greig, Catgut, Anna Smyrk, Lucas Paine, Brother Johnstone, The Woolworths Blues Singers and others, has composed music for a number of short films and video projects.

+ Market Lane , who mix earthy three part vocal harmony, exotic percussion and folky accompaniment to bring you fresh original music and their twist on classics. The group has graced festivals, weddings, city venues, rural community events, live radio slots and interstate performances. With a mutual love for story-telling, influences in jazz and world music traditions and exciting additions to their instrumentation, the trio has created new ground to collectively explore their writing, improvising and arranging. Think Coco’s Lunch, Tillery and The Staves.
