Katie Bates’ music is steeped in alt Country/Americana. A gifted storyteller, Katie has been playing the Melbourne music scene now for a number of years. Her music has been described as having paid respect to the likes of Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch and Tom Petty.
Take a listen to some of Katie’s beautiful music below thanks to the brilliant ‘Sofar’ with ‘Wishing Away Her Happiness:
And ‘Until The Day Dies’ (Live)
For this special show, Katie will be joined by touring Nashville artist Ben de la Cour.
“Ben de la Cour pulls no punches and always manages to dig deep into the most battered firmament with a voice that sounds like the American Heartland witnessed through the window of a car going 80 mph.”
– AMERICAN SONGWRITER
We are also very excited to be welcoming in special guest support for the night, The Weeping Willows. There’s an inherent truthfulness, perhaps even a righteousness, in every recording and performance by The Weeping Willows. They themselves can’t help it – for when music is born of love it is unflinchingly honest – even if the words are entirely fictional. This integrity is the reason The Willows can play almost every week of the year, often three or four times, winning over new fans and loyal friends wherever they go.
Take a listen below to ‘River of Gold’ by The Weeping Willows:
This is a General Admission event with front row priority seating available. Doors open at 6:30pm and tickets can be purchased below:
