About Sofiella & the Handsome Husbands

Sofiella & The Handsome Husbands are an independent 5-piece concocted through a mutual penchant for banjo twang and good whiskey. Their music swings between harmony-heavy front porch folk, and foot-stompin’ hillbilly barn-burners.

Sofiella Watt and the original Husband (Huckleberry Jim) formed their musical alliance during a rum soaked, swashbuckling existence on a remote Pacific island in the Tasman Sea.

The acquisition of banjos then led them down the old timey trail to the mountains of Nelson, BC, Canada. A few years of rambling around and touring with their 5-piece outfit, The Huckleberry Bandits, carried the release of Sofiella's 3rd EP, which garnered a Kootenay Music Award for “Best Folk/Country/Roots Act”.

After supporting the likes of esteemed Canadian folksinger, Old Man Luedeke, and sharing the bill with bands such as Elliott Brood and Ozomatli, their wandering ways have found roots back on the NSW North Coast. Sofiella & The Handsome Husbands will be packing the van with banjos, washboard, guitars, double bass, viola and drums and coming to a venue near you.

Cost: $50 +booking fee

The ticket price includes entry and freshly-cooked pizza that will be served at intermission. Wine and beer will be available to purchase at the Friends bar.
