Presented by Sarah Howells (Roots ‘N All)

Kick back with a cold beer every Sunday, as Triffid Roots presented by Sarah Howells (Roots ‘N All) takes over the venue and beer garden to bring you the best of Brisbane, and Australia’s blues, roots, folk, contemporary jazz, soul, reggae and world music.

The Flumes

The Flumes conjure up a lushly funky, dark and sparkling, intoxicating brew. Electric Harp pouring out psychedelic melodies over a stylin’ rhythm section laced with soulful vocals. It‚Äôs difficult to pin this trio down to one genre. Let‚Äôs just say The Flumes create an exquisitely eclectic blend of psychedelic folk laced with funk, blues, jazz, trip hop and a splash of reggae. So if you‚Äôre expecting Irish ditties or anything faintly classical, prepare to have your preconceptions blown in the best possible way. The trio have performed at the following soirees: Woodford, Earth Frequency, Floating Land, Island Vibe, Mission Evolve, Kuranda Roots, Palm Creek and Caloundra Music festival. They’ve also supported The WooHoo Revue, Kingfisha, The Beards, and the Violent Femmes.
