Tablelands Folk Festival Presents
With five albums to her credit, Jeanette Wormald has won national and international radio airplay and critical acclaim for her voice and her original songs inspired by the Australian landscape.
“It was Jeanette’s voice that first turned my head. Her resonating truly Australian flavour encapsulates the Australian Bush and helps to tell stories showing a deep understanding and experience rare to storytellers.
Not confined or restricted to a particular style, Jeanette’s obvious love of the Australian Outback from the red deserts to the lush rainforests, from the opalescent seas of the north to the rugged, scoured coastlands of the turbulent southern oceans come alive in passionate songs.”
MICK HODGKINS Tablelands Folk Festival
Wormald is a story-teller. Her original songs, powerful stage presence and skilled musicians combine to take listeners on a musical journey through shades of folk, roots, jazz and blues into Australia’s heartland.
“Jeanette Wormald is a surprising and enterprising performer … she delivered a mature, forthright, intriguing and intimate selection…”MATT BYRNE, SUNDAY MAIL (Adelaide Cabaret Festival)
“Jazz, lush pop, three-part harmonies … a very pleasant Jeanette Wormald experience. Jeanette was sultry, sexy and in fine form with both her voice and guitar. All up, a damn fine performance!” RIP IT UP (Adelaide Fringe Festival)
Joined on stage by the ever-reliable Dave Hart on the double bass and brand-new lead guitarist Paul Vandesar.
Yungaburra Hotel Saturday April 28 from 7.30 pm. Don’t forget the verandah jam session from 3 pm.
