Andy, Donal and Peter Baylor hardly need an introduction to enthusiasts of authentic roots music in Australia. Whether separately or together, they have tirelessly plied their trade over more than 30 years and have a well-earned reputation for their dedication and skills.
It’s been a long time coming but at last the planets have aligned and the boys will finally play at the fabled Yinnar Pub and let loose with the full gamut of their incredibly varied musical background. From traditional old-time fiddle tunes to classic brother duet harmony to Cajun to hot western swing – they draw on their unmatched experience to pull it all together on a variety of great vintage and modern instruments. It will be an extra special night sharing the bill with the fabulous Strzelecki Stringbusters and the US, mandolin maestro Mike Compton.
The Baylor Brothers draw their material from deep in the well and add great original songs to effortlessly create a unique sound. As The Age newspaper put it: ‘To the brothers, making music comes as naturally as breathing.”
Their new CD ‘Songs from Down the Line’ refers to a local saying from their beloved hometown of Healesville, Victoria. It was at the family home in Healesville where they practiced for hours and jammed together learning the fundamentals that have held on for so long. As always, the brothers are ably assisted by Andrew Scott from Warburton playing double bass.
