RORY ELLIS & CHRISTIAN MARSH

Stories by the tonne, and Americana music with a delicate wrench, this highly engaging duo will make you smile, shake, shed the odd tear, but leave knowing you just made a very important visit.

This act features the internationally the acclaimed voice of Rory Ellis, playing all things Acoustic and joined onstage by his long time sideman Christian Marsh, who in his own right is a world renown master of the Chromatic and Diatonic Harmonica. Together they perform beautifully stripped down versions of songs from Rory's last 10 albums.

Thirty odd years in the making, Rory has performed extensively at major venues and festivals here and abroad alongside greats such as Robert Cray, Richie Havens, Charlie Mussellwhite, Eric Bibb, even Pokey La Farge. Some festivals include, Isle Of Wight Festival UK, Maryport Blues Festival UK, Shetland Folk Festival UK, Castel St Pietro Blues Festival IT, Celle Festival DE, Thredbo Blues Festival AU, Port Fairy Folk Festival AU, National Folk Festival AU,  the list goes on. 

Most recently Rory and Christian performed at the Blue Mountains Music Festival 2022, Bells Line Festival 2022 and Thredbo Blues Festival 2023, (2 years back to back)

“An underground hero of Americana”, it’s been whispered. A Master Songsmith many have said. Yet, lauded by the media worldwide on every single album to date!

STAFFORD SANDERS

Stafford Sanders is a veteran singer, songwriter and guitarist born, raised and resident on the Northern Beaches.  His satirical songs and spoken satires are guaranteed to entertain.

He’s a longtime member of popular Sydney groups Men with Day Jobs and Baggage & Stuff – making six albums with them, appearing on national TV, playing hundreds of venues and several festivals – including three times at NBMF. 

He’s also performed solo at many venues, drawing on his and the groups’ originals as well as some inspired covers.

Stafford co-wrote the Men’s popular and much-covered climate satire “Denial Tango”; and in 2023 he co-wrote “Christmas Cheer” - winning ASA’s National Songwriting Award for Best Comedy/Novelty song.

His writing and performance are coloured by his long experience as an international award-winning journalist, innovative public and community broadcaster, published novelist, prizewinning playwright, acclaimed ABC satirist and successful public interest activist. He’s reported from the Amazon, been ejected from parliament, and appeared on Countdown in a sailor suit! And raised a lovely family – sometimes the inspirations for his songs.

For this festival, as well as choosing some favourite satirical songs, he’s reworked his popular radio and stage satire “Life on the Stump” – looking at the political animal in its natural habitat.
