'Great families of folk' to perform at folk club

"Two great Australian families of folk" will appear at the June meeting of the Troubadour Folk Club, according to its president Mr Michael Fine.

The Karen Law Trio from Queensland and the Fagans from NSW will perform at the Everglades Country Club, Woy Woy, from 7pm on Saturday, June 25.

"There's something special about a great musical family group that just can't be beaten," said Mr Fine.

"The Andrew Sisters, the Jackson Five and the Beach Boys; in the world of folk, from the Carter Family to the Watersons and the Seegers, the record speaks for itself.

"This is a very special event with two of the very best from Australia on one night."

Mr Fine said the Karen Law Trio came from the Glasshouse Mountains and Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

"Mum Karen started her musical journey in the folk clubs of northern England before moving to Australia in 1995.

"Known then as Karen Burton, she was a travelling musician with songs and stories of her life on the road and more.

"She moved to Queensland and had a family.

"Now son and daughter have grown up and have joined the family band.

"At home singing on stage or round the kitchen table, this family of presents a multi-generational show of award-winning songs and uplifting spirit.

"Karen received the Alistair Hulett Songwriting Award in 2020 for her environmental song Wildflower Woman'."

Mr Fine said The Fagans lived in the Blue Mountains.

"Margaret and Bob Fagan began their musical journey together in Canberra in the late 1960s," he said.

"They perform at all the major festivals around Australia, the UK and Ireland, both as a duo and as members of their international famous family band, The Fagans.

"Their strong blend of politically-edged traditional and contemporary songs combined with lyrical ballads and great choruses is guaranteed to lift your spirits.

"Their repertoire is firmly rooted in the folk tradition, with Margaret's pure voice and Bob's superb guitar playing and vocals combining to ensure their popularity both here and abroad."
