‘The Perth Folk and Roots Club has a stack of great musicians for the Victoria Park Centre for the Arts for Sunday 10th March ‘, said Keith Anthonisz, President of the Perth Folk and Roots Club.

Jenny Gaunt is a songwriter and musician from Perth. She has a folk/alternative style has been described as “hauntingly beautiful”. Releasing her debut solo EP, her songs are carried by guitar, keys and cello also supported by bass, percussion, banjo, clarinet and glockenspiel. Jenny is a multi-instrumentalist with a social conscience. Personal, authentic, mixing the lighthearted with the melancholoy with a focus on feeling. Jenny’s experience touring Europe, Australia and within the West Australian folk scene has well prepared her to step out solo. She mixes a proven love of storytelling with raw feeling to create her new songs. A road trip to the North of Western Australia led Jenny to write song ‘Complete’, about being connected to a land so red and a sky so blue it takes your breath away. The accompanying music video features footage from this journey.

Greg Cunningham has been playing music for over 35 years in various forms with a current focus on country blues. Greg is a masterful player of a variety of instruments including finger picking guitar, slide, banjo, mandolin and harmonica. Greg has also been part of the release of a number of CD’s. Currently Greg is playing in two acts, Second Wind an acoustic blues trio and Flame Tail Creek an Americana blues country four piece. Greg has also backed up for Dilip Parekh at past performances at Perth Folk and Roots Club.

‘The Perth Folk and Roots Club looks forward to the next Verandah Folk and Roots at the Victoria Park Centre for the Arts with the Jenny Gaunt Trio and Greg Cunningham’, said Keith Anthonisz.
