The Stillsons (2012)

Melbourne band The SIMG_3524atillsons returned to Adelaide in late December 2012 in their duo format – Justin Bernasconi and Cat Canteri (both guitar and vocals).   One of the gigs was at the Wheatsheaf Hotel on Dec 22, and Justin & Cat kindly agreed to be the first act to be recorded live for the Roots IMG_3517b& Branches blog.   Here are four songs that show a) the diversity of their styles around the folk / country / blues / roots musical axis, and b) that a duo can make a goodly amount of noise when they choose to!
