‘The Perth Folk and Roots Club has a pile of great musicians at the Victoria Park Centre for the Arts for Sunday 12th May‘, said Keith Anthonisz, President of the Perth Folk and Roots Club.

John Talati is a singer songwriter guitarist and harmonica player who has recorded a number of albums over the years. John writes and plays an interesting variety of music including folk, gospel and blues. He plays as a solo musician around Perth at venues including in recent times the Charles Hotel, The Perth Blues Club, The Osborne Park Hotel, The Pig & Whistle Tavern, the Belvideres Tavern and the Merriwa Tavern. John also fills in on bass with a select number of bands including Rick Steele, The Lovebites, Indigo Duck & The Gang of Three. John is a great supporter of Perth Folk and Roots Club.

GypsyLou is a two-part vocal harmony duo with guitar accompaniment, playing traditional Irish and Scottish folk music, original indie-folk songs plus covers of popular music. Carrie Lee is a singer/songwriter who has been performing music in Perth for the past 6 years, involved in various cover bands and projects as a singer and guitar player, and as a solo performer/busker. Her influences are eclectic, including blues, jazz, rock and folk music. Katie McMahon hails from Scotland, and is well-steeped in the traditional music of that part of the world. She studied music extensively throughout her schooling and has been a member of various choirs. She particularly enjoys singing in the Scottish national language of Gaelic and revels in its unique traditional sound. GypsyLou debut six-track EP, Girl In Blue, was released early in 2018 and is available across all platforms.
