UPCOMING HOUSE CONCERTS
(Links go to the performers' websites.)

The Mae Trio Wednesday, August 9, 2017, 7pm
The Mae Trio


Suggested Donation: $15

The Mae Trio, based in Melbourne, Australia, present a unique contemporary twist on folk music. Their debut album, Housewarming (2014), earned them the Folk Alliance Australia Youth Award and NFSA Folk Recording of the Year and saw them tour Australia, Canada, USA and Europe.
"Definitely a trio to keep an eye and an ear (or two) out for."
— Songlines
The trio, comprising of Maggie Rigby (banjo, ukulele, guitar and vocals), sister Elsie Rigby (violin, ukulele and vocals, and Anita Hillman (cello, bass and vocals), grew up steeped in music. Elsie and Maggie played in their family band and spent their childhood going to music festivals and camps, choir rehearsals and concerts while Anita with her classical pianist mother and folk enthusiast father, grew up playing in orchestras, string quartets and jazz ensembles.
"The Mae Trio has made a meteoric mark on the national acoustic music scene."
— Rhythms
When Maggie and Elsie asked Anita to play the cello on an album they were recording with their family band in 2011, little did any of them know they were embarking on an adventure which would change their lives.
"spine-tingling harmonies"
— The Scotsman
Their second album, Take Care Take Cover, was just released in April and the trio are set to tour North America this summer. We happy to share their music with you up close and personal in our living room!
"The Mae Trio were easily the breakout act at Folk Alliance."
— Blue Grass Situation
Coincidentally, the same week that we booked this show, the trio was featuring on Rolling Stone: www.rollingstoneaus.com

Here are a couple more samples of their music:

The Mae Trio - "Mr Moon"


The Mae Trio - "Well Enough Alone"

Please note: "Russ & Julie's House Concerts" is simply the name we choose to describe our private parties, in our private home. These parties are NOT a business nor are they a business related activity. They are strictly a hobby for us, and are simply gatherings of our friends and guests to enjoy live acoustic music, fellowship, food (a potluck dessert buffet) and fun. Our concert parties are officially free (or else it might be considered a business), although voluntary contributions (suggested donation of $20 per person) are accepted at the party on behalf of the artists. 100% of all contributions go directly to the performers. By invitation only.
