One Up, Two Down return to Australia fresh from a busy 2015 that’s seen them embark on their first tour in America and join with Chris Henry for tours across the USA and Australia.
January 2016 will see the release a brand new recording for One Up Two Down called, ‘A Day On The Quay’. This album follows their 2014 self titled release.
‘A Day On The Quay’ was recorded at Sydney’s Circular Quay on the last day of their 2014 Spring Tour. The setting and fantastic production really captures the live energy that One Up, Two Down is known for at our shows – George Jackson.
The new EP is available now for pre-order online at bandcamp.
One Up, Two Down hail from three countries joined by the Pacific Ocean. Fiddler George Jackson and guitarist Daniel Watkins, from New Zealand and Australia respectively, are back to back winners of the Australian Bluegrass Scholarship (’12, ’13) and veteran touring musicians in the Australian bluegrass scene. Together with North Carolinian, Yale School of Music trained (MM ’13) double bassist Andrew Small, they bring together raw old-time groove, bluegrass dexterity, and folk storytelling.
Opportunities to see One Up, Two Down are limited, but if you do get a chance to see them grab it with both hands. These guys are so well versed in the folk traditions that you can feel celtic, blues and country influences creeping in to make a wonderful, folky mess.” – Timber and Steel.
