Name: Great Aunt
Brief Blurb: Set somewhere between a gospel church in Louisiana and a dimly-lit speakeasy in Melbourne, sits the music of Melbourne-based Americana/folk duo, Great Aunt. Their songs are at once raw, simple and bold; full of stomping feet and clapping hands, chants and harmonies, whispered words, and soulful lament. Featuring the talents of Megan Bird (mandolin, guitar, voice) and Chelsea Allen (double bass, voice), the music of Great Aunt speaks of joy and grief, whiskey and wine, gratitude and purpose-seeking.

Great Aunt's debut single, 'Tell Me When It's Over' was premiered on The Bluegrass Situation (USA), and featured on Foxtel's Country Music Channel and DittyTV (USA). It received high-rotation airplay on various community radio stations Australia-wide, and was nominated in 3 'Best Songs of 2017' (Last Night in Town, Miss Chatelaine and Almost Famous Radio). The film clip for 'Tell Me When It's Over' won the grand prize at the 'Maed Dis' Films Film Festival in May '18. Great Aunt spent much of 2017 touring the east coast of Australia, including appearances at Nimbin Roots Festival, Foggy Mountain Bluegrass Festival, and Tamworth Country Music Festival. Their self-produced and recorded debut EP, 'A Mess That I Left' is due for release in September 2018.
