THE SOPHISTICATED HULAS

Betty France and Cate Jardine discovered each other in the late 90’s. They share a passion for great songwriters such as Gillian Welch, Townes Van Zandt and Anais Mitchell and this repertoire has now expanded into original material. They tell obscure tales of mythical women, sweet ditties about pets, laments about children and errant friends. They are welcome company around the campfires of Victoria’s folk world. Known for their uke playing, the addition of the banjo and guitar gives them another world of sound to explore. Hypnotic picking, rhythmic grooves and harmonies to die for make this unique duo something to experience.
Whilst described as ‘gothic folk’ they have an undeniably wicked humour and the sense not to take themselves too seriously. Their intimate style harks back to old timey music and has echoes of modern folk.
