Ragged Company are proud to announce two very special Big Day Out side shows for Kitty, Daisy and Lewis for both Sydney and Melbourne in January 2012.
Kentish town siblings Kitty Daisy and Lewis have rightfully earned themselves a reputation for being a group of highly talented and original masters of transcendent rock n’ roll. They have cast their distinct musical spell over listeners and critics alike with a sound that whilst deeply rooted in the past hurtles towards an interminable and effervescent future.
From a very young age Kitty, Daisy & Lewis’ performances have been blowing away and inspiring audiences, building up an impressive fan base from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Chris Martin and Eagles Of Death Metal to Dustin Hoffman and Ewan McGregor. They have had worldwide success with sold out tours and have opened for Coldplay, Razorlight, Richard Hawley, Jools Holland among others.
At their packed live shows there's no compromise when Kitty's howling harmonica solos backed by Daisy's solid rhythm on a battered snare-drum and Lewis's snapping guitar work drive crowds into a Southern Evangelical frenzy. The trio jump from one instrument to another, which range from piano, lap steel, banjos, ukulele, accordion, xylophone, trombone to name but a few.
Joining them on stage are former Raincoats drummer Ingrid Weiss on upright bass, Daddy Grazz on acoustic guitar, and legendary Jamaican trumpet player Eddie “Tan Tan” Thornton.
Kitty Daisy & Lewis are no strangers to our fair shores; they wowed crowds with their performance at the Sydney Festival back in January of this year and also released their sophomore album ‘Smoking In Heaven’. Now the young English trio returns bringing their own brand of rhythm and blues, country and gospel to the stage.
“The trio will blaze a trail to your heart and set your dancing feet on fire” Dazed & Confused
