scorching hot Instrumentals and powerful male dancing. The hot blooded music and dance
of this duo combine in a new direction of the Celtic tradition. Making an explosive entrance
on the festival scene this year George and Davydd were the surprise favorites at some of the
biggest festivals in the country including the National Folk Festival and Maldon Folk Festival.

IN CONCERT: LEAH FLANAGAN
In 2007 after being seen singing in a small Darwin jazz bar, Leah was personally invited to
perform at Bluesfest. Organiser Peter Noble said of the encounter 'It's not often you get the
chance to see someone so talented, so early in their careeer, playing in a back alley Darwin
bar'. Since then, thanks to her seemingly endless resources of talent, hard work and Darwin
charm, Leah has earned herself a well deserved place in the Australian music scene.
SAT The Duck 9.45pm
IN CONCERT: MR PERCIVAL
As musicians go, Mr Percival (aka Darren Percival) travels light these days. A Mr Percival
performance requires only Percival, his microphone and a few electronic pedals with which
he records and loops his voice to create beats, basslines, harmonies and melodies. The
result is a rather special take on a cappella. Using only his voice, Mr Percival can sound as
cavernous and rich as a Brooklyn gospel choir or as thoroughly danceable as your favourite
SAT The Duck 9.30pm
IN CONCERT: DYA SINGH
Dya Singh has been one of Australia's pioneers in the development of new Australian
World music. A Dya Singh performance music is many things and moves as the mood
requires... soothing, uplifting, exhilarating, hypnotic, informative with interaction and
improvisation between the musicians and conveying the sense of joy that arises from
creativity and spirituality meeting on stage. The music is transformational in that no matter
what the context, the music is true to the traditional intention and captures the essential
mystical quality that has inspired the Sikhs (and many others) for centuries. The critics are
unanimous in their praise of his voice, his control over his material and his innovations and
improvisational approach to the music.
