Phyl Lobl began writing and performing songs in the late sixties as Phyl Vinnicombe Larrikin records used Phyl’s talents on several LPs before releasing ‘On My Selection ‘ followed by ‘Broadmeadow Thistle’ consisting almost entirely of Phyl’s compositions. Phyl was the first artist to take part in the Folk Touring Circuit initiated by the National Folk Trust. An appointment to the Music Board of the Australia Council resulted in improved funding for folk music and recognition and funding that led to the National Folk Festival moving to Canberra. Phyl’s work has continued over the years and she is still active in championing folk music and encouraging and nurturing young musicians.

Phyl’s staged show  DAMES & DAREDEVILS FOR DEMOCRACY is being performed at MAGDA'S in Brisbane next June(2017).

Rob can't decide if he's a bushranger or a St Mary's Cathedral choirboy. Stephen still thinks unplugged means singing in an empty bath - great acoustics but why take your clothes off? Real musicians from Ribbon Gang may stand and deliver. This brotherly love duo lays all bare.

women in docs (Chanel Lucas and Roz Pappalardo) are known for their raw, exciting, upbeat sounds, well-considered (and often humorous) lyrics, crisp, acoustic guitar and soaring harmonies. The act gather large, loyal crowds wherever they play – including all major music and folk festivals across Australia and the USA. The duo first sang their way into the hearts of the Australian music loving public in the late ’90’s with their self-titled EP from which the track, ‘Tin Roof’, was immediately playlisted by ABC radio, launching them onto the main-stage of the Australian music industry. Key performances at South By South West, Austin, Texas; International Folk Alliance, San Diego and Memphis and Canadian Music Week, Toronto; 80 000 + CD’s sold independently, 8 releases later has cemented women in docs’ reputation as as one of Australia’s most enduring and loved independent acts.
