The Muggingtons

Having flatted together for 18 months without really playing together, The Muggingtons (Kim Bonneridge and Michael Muggeridge) discovered that their vocal blend and song choices were naturally complementary.

This was exciting: Kim has always been known for her beautiful, strong voice and delicious harmonies and Michael for his unmatchable enthusiasm while he picks up a storm on his guitar. Together, The Muggingtons explore the best of Americana with such tight harmonies that sometimes even they have to stop to consider which one of them is singing the melody.

An evening with The Muggingtons includes old time country duets from acts such as the Louvin Brothers as they seamlessly travel the historical highway and move into more modern territory to celebrate the likes of Gram Parsons and Gillian Welch.

Hobnail

They began their musical odyssey in 1995 as Hobnail Boots. They were a party band and played a mix of Celtic, Country, and originals. Three years later they had released two albums and were on their way to play in the U.S. This was followed by gigs in England & Germany.

Now, 26 years later, they have left their boots somewhere, made copious festival appearances both national and international, released a concert video directed by Costa Botes, and are up to their seventh album.

La Wellington Tipica

"Orquesta Tipica" is a common name for Argentine tango orchestras. A tango orchestra usually consists of violin, guitar, piano, double bass, bandoneon (a type of concertina) and vocals. La Wellington Tipica play the languid, sensuous melodies of tango to perfection, with rich harmonies and the warm sinuous rhythm of the tango.
