Slim Dime +

Slim Dime are an acoustic, Americana, folk, country duo from Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges. Their music references the simplicity and space of old time mountain music, fog soaked valleys and mountain ash forests: a blending of rural and urban.
Jen Land & Chris Taylor have been playing together for the last 10 years making country tinged music in bands such as The Original Smith Family and The Bitter Sweets. They presently play in Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings – a Western Swing Boogie Woogie 6 Piece band and Slim Dime – an acoustic duo. Their debut album, "Hold Fast" was recorded at Incubator by candlelight - a mesmerizing country folk journey, with solid song writing and beautiful renditions of traditional songs. They're hitting the road to promote their second album recorded by Matt Walker. They have performed at Festivals such as Fleurieu Folk Festival, Blackwood Festival of Music and Culture, The Great Alpine Pick and Foggy Mountain Festival.

"Silver Tongue & Gold Plated Lies" - it's nice & purty!
is a Lismore based ol timey band playing hillbilly and early Gospel style music with banjos, mandolin, guitar and double bass.
They are Tintenbar Up Front Favourites after the audience spontaneously got up from their chairs and danced when they started playing.
