Presented by Sarah Howells
Kick back with a cold beer every Sunday afternoon as Triffid Roots—presented by Sarah Howells (Roots N’ All)—takes over the venue and beer garden to bring you the best of Brisbane and Australia’s blues, roots, folk, contemporary jazz, soul, reggae and world music.

Joel Edmondson
Joel Edmondson is a journeyman wandering the valleys of country, soul and pop. Casting off the prog shackles of his 2010 debut ‘Invisible Steps’, Joel’s new music is stripped back to the basics of great songwriting – infectious melodies, meaningful lyrics and raw emotion. With a voice that straddles the unfathomable divide between Joe Cocker and Roy Orbison, Joel delivers a performance that is at turns joyous, defiant and contemplative.

June Low
June Low is the project of Brisbane-based singer-songwriter, Emma White. Her music is an eclectic mix of folk, roots and indie-pop which combines rawness with translucent beauty. With a stirring voice, distinctive lyrics and adventurous guitar playing, June Low creates moods that are by turns meditative, unexpected and confronting.
In Brisbane, June Low and her band (Jane Elliott, Andy Davis & Brian Mann) have played at smaller venues like Junk Bar and they have also enjoyed playing to larger crowds at The Zoo. Over the years, White has supported artists such as Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman), Mia Dyson and Jess McAvoy and has played shows nationally as well as in the UK. Her most memorable gig was playing at a women’s prison in 2011 as part of a vigil to raise awareness of domestic violence.
In September 2014 June Low released debut digital single, ‘Alone’ along with a music video for this song filmed by Jaymis Loveday. Earlier this year June Low released debut album, Exhale, produced by Skritch (Gota Cola, Mary Trembles, Woolpit), in March 2015 and followed this with a national east-coast tour. Planning for regional show dates and for the next release is now underway.
