Den Hanrahan is a singer-songwriter whose songs tell the stories of modern Australia – from the red dust of the land, to the loves and losses of the people that have touched his life.
Woven through this rich repertoire are the stories drawn from his own past, finely observed tales from his years living and working across the country.
With long-time musical partner Matt Nightingale on bass and South Coast legend Jay McMahon on drums, he is exploring some new sounds with this band, The Roadsiders.
Steeped in blues, roots, bluegrass and Australian country rock, pushing beyond genres and dipping generously into the melting pot that is Australian roots music, Hanrahan is a surprisingly fresh take on this sound.
Den Hanrahan and The Roadsiders will perform on Friday, August 17 at the Candelo Kameruka Bowling Club in Candelo from 8pm. They will perform with Jackson State, who play funky country and features Steve Jackson, Damian Davies and Sam and Anna Martin.
Tickets are $15.
