The Papercollar Pickers are Rod Vervest and Craig Sinclair, two musicians hailing from WA’s south coast, who share a common love for ragtime guitar, close vocal harmonies and Albany’s granite coastline. This likely pair came together in 2010 to provide the rhythmic engine room for popular WA acoustic stringband the Pepperjacks, honing their tasty dual thumb-picking arrangements and single microphone technique. Now on opposite sides of the country (they are both inter-generational and inter-jurisdictional) they reunite in happy moments to celebrate the old stories, the old tunes and the mighty right thumb of old Big Bill Broonzy. The Go Twos (Rosie & Nigel) are both well established in the Folk and festival scene, having played in numerous bands and line ups, apart and together. It is the music they play together that shines with an intimate and heartfelt intensity that shimmers in the ether between performer & listener. Rosie and Nigel draw upon the rhythmic and melodic lines that weave through the folk tradition and present their own material which they are currently recording for their debut CD. Their music is a joyful antidote to current hard times.
