The Maes

Concert or Performance

8 Apr 2022 Once Only Event

The Maes bring their soaring harmonies and instrumental prowess to the Lyre Room.

The Maes (sisters Maggie and Elsie Rigby) grew up the children of folk musicians, immersed in folk festivals, choir rehearsals and campfire sessions. This formative experience helped to shape two of Australian folk music’s most respected songwriters, singers and instrumentalists. Since 2014, they’ve been touring full time playing some of the world’s most prestigious roots music festivals, including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in the USA, Edmonton Folk Festival in Canada and the Woodford Folk Festival and WOMADelaide in Australia. Their 2019 self-titled release, ‘The Maes’ won Best Folk/Roots Album of the Year at the Music Victoria Awards; their second consecutive win in this category after their Nashville-produced release, ‘Take Care Take Cover’ won the title in 2017.

Alongside these accolades, their song ‘Driving Ali Through Mining Towns’ was shortlisted for the 2019 Vanda and Young Songwriting Award.

Run Time is 70 Minutes.
