Foghorn Couple to Tour Australia

Image634873495332762763Starting in Mid November, The Foghorn Stringband’s Nadine Landry and Stephen “Sammy” Lind will be traveling through the Australian country for the first time, bringing their mix of Appalachian and Midwestern Old Time Fiddle music, and early Country and Cajun Music to folk clubs, house concerts, pubs and festivals.

Over 30 shows are planned throughout Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania. Alternating between fiddle, guitar, banjo, accordion, they play and sing true to the roots of American music with energy and respect.

Nadine Landry and Stephen “Sammy” Lind are members of the critically acclaimed Foghorn Stringband, the Dirk Powell Band, and they play with  Jesse Lege, Joel Savoy and the Cajun Country Revival. They have also collaborated with Alice Gerrard, Tim O’Brien, Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum, amongst many others. Performing and teaching over 250 dates a year, they travel the world spreading their love and respect for Traditional Music. 

Nadine and Sammy’s first recording, Granddad’s Favorite, covers a lot of musical territory, from Cajun to early country to traditional old time.  Recorded in the Cajun part of Louisiana by living legend Joel Savoy (The Savoy Family Band), the album showcases Sammy’s fine fiddling and banjo playing backed up by Nadine’s solid guitar playing. Nadine’s powerful, flat-out, nail-you-to-the-wall country voice is complimented beautifully by Sammy’s straight-forward and honest vocals, resulting in timeless, authentic American music.
