Chloë and Jason Roweth have been performing and recording for over 18 years together. They share a passion for Australian folklore and bush music, getting great satisfaction out of bringing almost forgotten songs back to life again.
Always a captivating concert experience, Chloë & Jason combine a striking mix of older country and traditional styles, with fresh arrangements and a relaxed delivery, distinctly Australian in character. Their broad repertoire includes strong original songs, old-style ballads, well known bush songs, and lively dance tunes, accompanied by some fascinating background on where the items come from, and the performers who played them.
Chloë & Jason perform as a duo (formerly called Us Not Them), six-piece Australian corrugated iron folk with Collector, along with other side projects. Successful independent artists with thousands of performances around Australia & overseas to their names, their releases include 15 CDs of Australian folk, country and bush music.
Their vast repertoire includes strong original songs, old style ballads, well known bush songs and lively dance tunes.
With Australian influences always to the fore, they will bring us one of their themed presentations ‘THE RIDERLESS HORSE’, an Australian impression of WW1 in their first half, and finish with a concert spot containing many of their old favourites.
This will be a real treat, a’ first’ for us!
