Brothers Have Country Covered

Who: Aubrey and Martin
Where: Belmont 16ft Sailing Club
When: Wednesday January 18, 2006

VERSATILE duo Aubrey and Martin is on its way to Belmont 16ft Sailing Club. Both blessed with strong, individual voices that blend together as only brothers can, Aubrey and Martin will perform at the club on Wednesday, January 18.

The siblings originally made their start in Queensland but have since established a reputation as solid performers nationwide.

Their work has been honoured on numerous occasions, with the duo receiving consecutive MO Award nominations in 1999, 2000 and 2001.

Not content with being a vocal duo, the pair explore many styles of music in their repertoire and reflect this in a multi-instrumental show that includes mandolin, banjo, trumpet, harmonica, didgeridoo, guitar and bass.

Aubrey and Martin like to include songs by contemporary Australian writers in their show as well as their own original material.

Some of their highlights over the last couple of years include being flown to the US in 1999 to represent Australia along with fellow MO Award winner Wayne Horsburgh at Worldfest in Branson, Missouri.

It is one of the largest international music festivals in America and their show proved so popular with the US audiences that they took their Cooee Australia Show back for a five-week season in 2000.

Their music is featured regularly on national radio programs like Ian McNamara's Australia All Over .

One of their most popular tracks is The Lights of Wollongong from their Aubrey & Martin Say G'day album.

Aubrey and Martin will perform from 11am on January 18.

Entry is free.
