Courtyard Sessions Featuring Dane Overton & Sam Fletcher
November 30, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Chapter 35 of the Courtyard Sessions will feature Dane Overton, Gerringong based Blues and Roots Singer/Songwriter
+ supported by local indie/folk-rock talent Sam Fletcher
Dane Overton has forged a name for himself with his hearty blend of blues and roots music that burns in the soul; songs that bleed with the soulful yawl of Tom Waits, the honesty and conviction of Son House and the Delta Blues and the joy and warmth of The John Butler Trio
Known to many as the frontman of ‘The Joy Williams band” Danes sound is stronger, louder and more powerful than ever before, giving him the opportunity to not only play his unique type of blues, but open up new avenues of songwriting.
A slew of recent touring, including supporting slots for Phil Jamison of iconic Australian rock act Grinspoon and Kim Churchill, oft considered part of the new guard in roots music down under, has afforded new and diverse audiences across Australia an opportunity to familiarise themselves with Overton’s dirty, tobacco stained brand of blues and roots music. On top of national touring, Dane has also toured internationally, including Europe, Singapore and Cuba.
Supporting Dane will be local artist Sam Fletcher, Indie folk and classic rock with a laid-back thoughtful air is the signature sound of this acoustic singer/songwriter. Influenced by the acoustic greats of the 60’s and 70’s, and the folk songs of old, Sam’s music is mnemonic with that of James Taylor and John Martyn.
Performances will begin from 6pm Saturday 30th of November.
