Swamp HouseNews & Reviews

The Stag has two hot nights of live music this weekend:

Friday, July 8th, the fabulous Chris Cavill & The Prospectors will be on stage.

Take the folk-rock stylings of artists such as Neil Young and The Band, stir in some ’60s soul balladry, then add a very healthy dose of bluesy riffy goodness. Garnish with sharp, insightful songwriting and water-tight execution, and the result is Chris Cavill & The Prospectors.

Cavill is no stranger to the Australian music scene. In a career spanning more than 9 years, the Melburnian singer-songwriter has played all over the country and released a string of acclaimed records with his erstwhile backing band, The Long Weekend.

The Prospectors sees Cavill tread new terrain, with an eclectic sound that exudes solemn maturity while retaining the energy and effervescence of his roots-rock foundations.

Saturday, July 9th, will see Mick Hart  grace the Stag’s Stage.

Australian singer/songwriter MICK HART has been touring the world for the past 15 years, playing festivals and concerts all over Australia, France, Holland, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Belgium, England, Ireland, Scotland, Japan and the USA.

Praised all over the globe by critics and fans including BEN HARPER and JEFF BUCKLEY’s ex-manager DAVE LORY, MICK has played support to BOB DYLAN, COLDPLAY, STING, VAN MORRISON, PAUL WELLER, GOMEZ, TAJ MAHAL, ZWAN, THE PRETENDERS, PAUL KELLY, JOHN BUTLER TRIO and many more.
