Kyabram born and schooled musician Katherine (Kath) Buckell will return to Kyabram ahead of an Australian tour of US based group, The Jammin Divas of which she is a member.January 28, 2014 3:00pm
The Jammin Divas, Hadar Noiberg, Aoife Clancy, Kath Buckell and Nicole Zuraitis will be performing in Kyabram.
This will be the first Australian tour for the group, and Ms Buckell is excited that a concert has been scheduled in her home town.
The Jammin Divas will perform at Kyabram Club on Wednesday, February 19 at 8 pm, with club general manager Mike Sweeney ‘‘very excited about having such a high calibre act at the venue’’.
‘‘This concert will be the only GV region concert so is a coup for the town,’’ Mr Sweeney said.
The Jammin Divas bring an eclectic mix of music harking from the United States, Ireland, Israel and even a bit of inspiration from Australia.
The group — featuring Aoife Clancy (Ireland), Nicole Zuraitis (the US), Kath Buckell (Australia) and Hadar Noiberg (Israel), formed three years ago and have already earned a considerable following throughout the US and Canada, and are rapidly gaining an ever-growing fan base across the globe.
Their music is a sharing of cultures and in true world music fashion it features a blend of blues, traditional folk, jazz and contemporary influences.
Now, they are performing a string of headline tour dates around Australia in February and March including the coveted International guest line-up at the 2014 Adelaide Fringe and Port Fairy Folk Festival.
Ms Buckell said she couldn’t wait to share the group’s music with Australian audiences.
‘‘I am incredibly excited to play on my home turf and the girls are as well,’’ she said.
‘‘Even though the group’s style is a fusion of roots and world music, there is no one genre that defines them.
‘‘Even though we draw on the roots of traditional music, we don’t call ourselves a traditional group.
‘‘We really have made all the traditional arrangements very contemporary and we also have original material as well.”
Ms Buckell said there was storytelling, laughter and a strong element of cultural exchange through their music.
