28th October 2017
This isn't this duo's first time in the Mountains, Warwick Hargreaves and Tina Fullerton are a favourite of 'Music in the Mountains' having played at Hotel Blue in Katoomba last year. Out of Abingdon have built a unique sound filtered from influences including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kenny Burrell, Bjork and Nina Simone, their understated elegance draws the listener in. Smooth, effortless and a little beatnik, this duo bring a sense of cool everywhere they go. Tina’s ethereal vocals and grooving double bass accompanied by Warwick’s fearless expressive guitar sounds and husky voice creates a sensual, soulful atmosphere and stage presence that's smoking hot! From their home base in Brisbane, Australia, Out of Abingdon successfully completed their third European and UK tour last year, playing venues throughout Scotland, England, Belgium, Paris and Berlin. They have played well over 700 gigs together in the last eight years, at festivals including the Edinburgh Fringe, Brisbane International Jazz, Noosa Jazz and the Illawarra Folk, Gold Coast Acoustic, Gulgong Folk, Bellingen Turtle and Neurum Creek Music Festivals to theatres, clubs, bars, cafes, private and corporate functions, also playing as guest artists aboard P and O Cruise's Pacific Aria in 2015.
