Event Details

Described as “mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, head-spinning”, The Crooked Fiddle Band's live shows blister with an intense energy that is driven by their distinctive sound. Driven by the extraordinary and furious fiddling of Jess Randall, and underpinned by a rhythm section featuring Gordon Wallace (bouzouki, guitar, mandolin), Mark Stevens (double bass) and Joe Gould (drum kit, vocals), The Crooked Fiddle Band mix blasts of fiery folk with the intense atmosphere and detail of post and prog-rock, resulting in a multilayered, complex and ecstatic hybrid they call 'chainsaw folk'.
 
Recording with studio legend Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Pixies, Gogol Bordello) at his notorious analog-only Chicago studio Electrical Audio, the band have released two albums, which were preceded by two locally produced EPs.
 
Live, they are at home in the theatre of Sydney's Opera House, festival headline stages like the London Olympic Arts Festival, Woodford, Falls and Peats Ridge, as well as cult underground appearances at Tasmania's Dark Mofo, Germany's Fusion Festival, and the UK's Shambala. Supports include Shellac, The Beards, The Jezabels, Lunasa, Afenginn, Closure in Moscow and many more.
