Kenta Hayashi:

Live at Yonder Festival, Mary Valley, 30 November 2019

Japanese multi-instrumentalist and self-described “loop pedal ninja” Kenta Hayashi moved from Gifu, Japan, to Los Angeles at the age of 18 and formed the funk band Four Minutes Til Midnight. In the past ten years he has built up a solo career touring the world with his guitars and extensive setup of effects pedals that he uses in live performance, looping and building intricate parts one on top of the other. His latest album “Berliner Sparkler” came out in September 2019.

Cigány Weaver:

Live at Yonder Festival, Mary Valley, 29 November 2019

Brisbane-based Romani-style jazz ensemble Cigány Weaver have been working hard to win over audiences with their spectacular live shows for several years now, including spots at the Woodford Folk Festival, Caloundra Music Festival and MONA’s Dark Mofo.

The band’s debut, self-titled EP was released in 2016 and was a live recording of interpretations of song from the history of film. Their debut album from 2019, also self-titled, showcased both original material and a few older standards.

While normally a six-piece, this set recorded at Yonder Festival’s Wunderbar Stage featured the band as a slightly stripped-down four-piece, with Jo Davies on vocals, Gareth Mewes on violin and Rory Dollard and Conor McDonald on guitars.
