SLIMEDIMEWe have added the group Slim Dime to our list of bands.

Slim Dime is  an acoustic, folk, country, americana 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 as 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, recorded at Incubator Studios by candlelight ‘Hold Fast” is a mesmerising country folk journey, with solid song writing and beautiful renditions of traditional songs. Stay tuned for the second album due for release 2016.

They have performed at Festivals such as Fleurieu Folk Festival 2014, Blackwood Festival of Music and Culture 2014, The Great Alpine Pick 2015 and Foggy Mountain Bluegrass Festival 2015. In 2016 they look forward to playing at The Great Alpine Pick, Mt Beauty Music Festival and heading north to QLD and NSW in June.
