Illawarra Folk Club presents Penny Davies and Roger Ilott in Concert
PENNY DAVIES AND ROGER ILOTT
With a career in Australian folk music spanning more than 40 years, Penny Davies & Roger Ilott have developed a huge repertoire of contemporary and traditional folk songs from all around the world. Their interpretations of Bill Scott’s Hey Rain and Where The Cane Fires Burn are classics of the genre. Prolific recording artists in Australian folk music, with 21 albums to their credit, their close harmonies and sparkling 12 string acoustic guitar and mandolin arrangements create a warm and magical concert experience. Their songs have also featured on the bestselling ABC albums Australia All Over Volumes One and Two, Macca On Air,Macca’s Sunday Best and Macca By Request – Volumes 1 and 2.
“Penny Davies and Roger Ilott occupy a unique place in Australian music spanning the great divide between Folk and Country. They have reinvigorated the bush ballad, kept alive the protest song, and have celebrated all that it means to be Australian.” – John Broomhall, Trad & Now Magazine

Extra Extra: Tom Lewis: the great Tom Lewis whom we have just snared before he goes on the rest of his world tour,
will be playing in the same concert with Penny Davis and Roger Ilot
Tom came to the Festival and played to packed audiences until his voice gave out on the Sunday (and if you have heard his voice, you would know why.) He is one of the absolute best shanty singers in the world and has a history as a sub marina and sailor.
So much does he love the water (except for drinking it) that for years he and his wife Lyn have lived on a canal boat and moved around Britain’s inland waterways
Ticket Price includes supper at intermission....Coffee, Tea, Cakes and slices
