August Janggaburru Sessions
Rocking crowds in Far North Queensland for over a decade, Benny and the Clones deliver powerful and passionate original music to anyone who will listen. Lead singer/songwriter Ben Radford is a prolific songwriter and has described the band as a love child of Thom Yorke, Jeff Tweedy, Gene and Dean Ween, Beck, The Go-Betweens and Dan Kelly. That’s a lot of parents to have, but a particular style has emerged they can easily call their own.
Their lyrics don’t fluff around – often going straight for the jugular on issues like politics, religion, environment, the inner workings of the human being, and (much to their wives’ delight) the joys of relationships and marriage!
Benny and The Clones are the feature act for the August Janggaburru Sessions brought to you by the Tablelands Folk Festival.
