Oakleigh Caravan Club, 95-97 Drummond Street, Oakleigh, Victoria

OZCAN SHOWCASE FEAT. MO KENNEY, KIM WEMPE, NICHOLAS ROY & LIAM GERNER Don't miss the best Canadians & Australians in the full gamut of styles from this year’s Woodford Folk Festival. For the past three years, Canadian artists have been not so quietly infiltrating the programme of the Woodford Folk Festival, and for the last two, an enterprising Sydney outfit, OzCan presents, have been taking them on the road. The synergies between Canadians and Australians is as well known as, well, Vegemite and maple syrup, and it seems like the camaraderie extends into a huge appreciation of Canadian music by Australian audiences, no matter what the genre. About Mo Kenney: “Her solo compositions, such as “Sucker” and “The Great Escape”, are just as striking, blending humour and heartfelt emotion with a riveting vocal delivery. Kenney’s take on Bowie’s “Five Years” is the album’s sole cover and it’s a knockout.” – New Canadian Music “A voice pure and solid as a forest filled the room, chasing distracted thoughts into the dusty corners. Then her voice changed into a haunting golden mist, and the silence began to dance around it like an excited friend.” – Audio Reckoning
