Big-ups to Rhythms Magazine for an awesome review of Aunt Thally, which they describe as “gloriously disconcerting” (love that!) Here’s a copy of the review, but you can pick up Rhythms at your local or online. Fleet Foxes on the cover.
We head to Qld next month, with highlights being Black Mountain Unplugged Festival, a Stop Adani gig in Cairns and a reef trip …if there’s any unbleached coral left up there.
Lime and Steel has some pretty important gigs coming up! Friday June 2 we play at the Stop Adani Disco Hoedown, Junction 142 in Katoomba, doors open 7:30
August 11 we play Black Mountain Unplugged, way up in Cape York, taking a squiz at the reef on the way. To jump in with us on the campaign to move away from coal and save the Great Barrier Reef check out:
Our new EP is out and its awesome! You can pick up your own copy from CDbaby, either posted or as a download, you can listen on all the usual online places… or come grab one from us at gig!
The End Festival, Hill End, This weekend!
Fairlight Folk Acoustic Lounge, Sat May 13:
Troubadour Folk Club, Woy Woy, Sat May 27:
Here’s a pic of Maizy-Jane. She’s awesome too!
After seven years of bringing the rock, the handsome Ian Morrison is hanging up the Lime and Steel kick drum and taking a parting glass with the band. From tasty cymbal splashes to sweaty pub rock to bringing consistent punk subversiveness into the folk world, Ian has been a fundamental part of the Lime and Steel sound: He’ll be missed!
A stalwart of the Katoomba music scene, you’ll still catch Mr Morrison rockin’ in bands all over K-town. Lime and Steel won’t even try to replace him… but watch this space for upcoming sweet gigs as a string-band trio.
Two weeks to go! We will have our new EP out for the Blue Mts Music Fest! Playing next to a huge line up of cool acts from Urthboy to Eddie Reader. Check out some awesome glossy press in Blue Mts Life magazine, with photos of us alongside up-and-comers The Waifs and some dude called Paul Kelly…
You can buy Blue Mountains Life magazine at local newsagents. They interview Paddy on his beardy church-folk upbringing, and how Lime and Steel first came together.
Its time: Our epic residency at the the legendary Katoomba institution that is the Old City Bank is coming to a close!
We’re sharing the last gigs of the residency at this sweet venue with solo sets from two awesome Blue Mountains performers:
Sat Feb 25, 9pm, handing the stage to Ollie from Paperhill at 11pm
Sat March 11, 9pm, with Andie Isalie busting out tasty tunes from 11pm
This awesome bar has backed us from the start and given us a regular gig for longer than we can remember…We’ve decided to finally give it over to some new peeps.
Mountains folks, raise your glass to one of your underrated gems: No pokies, no screens, no aggro d!*heads, just good beer and consistently awesome free live music. Thanks for your part in keeping mountains culture so awesome!
