Banshees Bar & Artspace, 131 Brisbane Street Ipswich

L.R. Marsh: Brisbane/Mianjin based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. L.R. Marsh captures the heart and soul of early 20th-century delta blues and delivers it through raw slide guitar work on a classic steel resonator and cigar box guitar, directly into the 21st century by way of multiple guitar amps, earth-shaking guitar tones, and thundering foot drum grooves. Classics such as Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson are apparent in LR’s sound, however, it is the foot-stomping wall-of-sound that really demands attention onstage, with influences such as Gary Clark Jr, The Black Keys, 20 Watt Tombstone, The White Stripes, and 90’s stoner rock legends Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, and Fu Manchu making a solid presence in LR’s stage show.

Shane Fell: Shane Fell the One-Man-Street-Band combines electric guitar and banjolele with his home-built drum rig. His vaudevillian style will put a little pepper in your candy cane ‘cause even chitty chitty bang bang ain’t got no swing like this street band king. You better get there early or you’ll be sorely disappointed you missed a taste of ghost train fever.
