“BEAUTIFUL, raw and exciting,” “this shabby, hill country blues oozes cool,” “a celebration of everything that is good about contemporary roots music,” “if they don’t move you, nothing will”…

These are standard assessments, and there are hundreds of them, accumulated over the years describing Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson.

The pair have been taking their gloriously rough ‘n’ tumble music out into the world.

The gutsy Australian guitarist and Irish-born Cara may be based Down Under, but they have built a faithful global following from touring relentlessly and leading UK roots music website Spiral Earth stated that they “pack more energy, emotion and sheer musical exuberance into one song than most manage in a whole career.”

Hat Fitz is a “veteran” wild man of the blues scene in Australia. He has a record 18 straight appearances at Byron’s East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, a record that is not likely to ever be broken, and one which bears testimony to his amazing live performances and popularity with festival goers.

Cara draws on her soul background (she’s toured Europe and the United States with singers such as Jamiroquai and the hugely popular Corinne Bailey-Rae), and although blessed with a sensational voice she was not content to be labelled as ‘just a singer’.

She has taken to drumming duties as well as washboards, flute and tin whistle, sometimes all at once.

Together this pair will take you on a musical journey with ample, boisterous highs, and longing, bluesy lows.

From the Australian outback to the Canadian shield, Hat Fitz and Cara put on a show that is guaranteed to energize and invigorate.

On Wednesday July 24 you can catch them in action at the Victoria Hotel in Menai Bridge where their three previous appearances have all sold out.

Doors upen 8.00pm and tickets are available now from Palas Print Caernarfon (01286 674631) and Mudshark Records Bangor.
