Torchsong Country Soul Band

Posted by

Last Sunday I saw a divine (relatively) new country band at the Botany View Hotel in Newtown, Sydney. The Torchsong Country Soul Band are a six-piece outfit – five men and one lovely girl singer, Maree Byrne – and they are doing a very nice line in country, bluegrass, blues and folk. It’s clear that this is a ‘musician’s band’. All players were accomplished and obviously serious about what they do. It showed in the quality of their music, which was better than most acts I’ve seen at Tamworth or, for that matter, at the Botany View. They’re not playing many gigs at the moment – hopefully they’ll get a guernsey at next year’s Tamworth Festival – but it would be so worth your time to check them out.
