Named by folk-blog Timber and Steel as ‘Janis Joplin and Ben Harper’s love-child’, Cass Eager’s mix of raw soul, husky blues and light-hearted ditties are all punctuated with her unique whisky-soaked vocals. Emotive, slightly raspy, at times tender and at times powerful, Cass’ authentic voice is always the driving force of her music.
Internationally renowned but defiantly grassroots, Cass Eager is one of those rare artists that’s mastered everything from the foot-stomping blues to a sensual slow burner. She’s been called ‘one of the best female singers in Australia’ by Richard Glover (ABC), ’the girl with the golden voice’ (Daily Examiner), and Diesel claims ‘she has a voice so sweet she could sing the phone book and you wouldn’t get bored’.
Cass’ music has taken her to some of the world’s most far-flung places. Performing in diverse locations from CBGB’s in NYC to the beachfront huts of Dili has given Eager a depth and richness that comes from experience. She’s done several ‘tours of duty’ entertaining Australian troops, from Egypt to East Timor (with Paul Kelly and Peter Garrett), the Middle East to the Solomon Islands. She’s toured through North America and Canada – alone waith her acoustic guitar; alongside Ash Grunwald; and with US musician Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo; ex-Wilco). Cass also performed for Prince Harry during his Australian visit, and after being invited back for a repeat performance, ended up giving the prince guitar lessons.
Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours that takes the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists performing at two of our country’s largest festivals, and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia.
It is produced by Woodfordia Inc in partnership with many other wonderful Australian festivals, regional partners and great lovers and supporters of folk and contemporary acoustic music.
Performers for the Summer Tour 2020: Cygnet to Illawarra are Scotland's Siobhan Miller and Australia's Jack Carty. Full details are here.
