Stiff Gins

With Lisa Crawley (free in the Festival Hub bar).

Stiff Gins combine stunning harmonies and wicked senses of humour to transport listeners to a world of joy, spirit and song. Their moniker is a reclamation of an offensive reference to Aboriginal women, a banner to guide their music in the direction of strength and pride. Three albums and countless breathtaking shows later, the name has become synonymous with musical excellence. Fresh off the stage from their epic visual theatre project Spirit of Things: Sound of Objects they are forging forward. In their nineteenth year they soar into their most intriguing music making yet with a new recording and sound design project in the works.

Renowned local singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lisa Crawley can charm jazz loving audiences one minute and command indie credibility the next. She is bringing her undeniably catchy tunes to the Festival Hub bar for free performances before and after the show.

"Stiff Gins are one of Australia’s most highly acclaimed indigenous folk/pop/vocal groups."
