Under the stars just a short drive from Townsville
Folk funksters The Moonsets (formerly The Flumes) combine Electric Harp, Bass, drums and soulful vocals to create an eclectic blend of psychedelic folk laced with soul, funk, world, blues and a splash of subtropical groove. It’s difficult to pin these musical adventurers down to one genre so be prepared to have any preconceptions blown in the best possible way.
Kayt Wallace artfully bends the organic tones of her 36-string electric Harp with guitar effects and a playing style that’s all her own. Her smoky vocals sweep from whispers to soulful roars layered with the harmonies, rich grooves and the playful rhythms of Andrea Joy Norden on drums and songwriting partner Stephan Beattie on bass / guitar.
Over the years the trio have had the pleasure to share their unique sounds at Woodford Folk Festival, Palm Creek, Mitchell Creek Rock n Blues, Wallaby Creek, Australian Body Art, Rush, Island Vibe, Kuranda Roots, Folk Rhythm and Life, Earth Frequency and MONA and have been acknowledged with highly commended 4 times in the Blues & Roots, Folk and World categories of the QLD Music Awards.
The Moonsets independently produce and record on 100% solar power in their old wooden shack on the northern edges of the Sunshine Coast.
