The Marvellous Hearts live on the grass
This show is outside on the grass (weather permitting). Wet weather arrangements are described on our website.
The Marvellous Hearts take their starting point from the ’60s and ’70s. Their music is grounded in old school blues and traditional folk with flourishes of rock and cosmic country, with songs, which are too relevant today to be labelled as “retro revivalists”.
“We are at our core a collective of beautiful & diverse cultures, just like any family we all have gifts and talents we bring to the table. We carry in our DNA the ancient wisdom of Greece, the medicine of China, the passion of Italy, the navigational intuition of the Vikings, and the Aloha & Mana of Pasifika”
They’ve been compared to Bob Dylan and the Band and have been played across American & Europe & locally on Double J, and Triple J as well as community radio and the ABC.
“One minute you hear The Beatles, then it’s Bob Dylan on rotation. Hell, then I hear a fragment that reminds me of one particular Paul Kelly song, and another faint echo that had me thinking Goanna. And yet out of this melting pot comes something distinct and un-pigeonholeable. And did I mention that they ooze attitude? I like them. Chances are you will too.” Stuart Coupe.
“The Marvellous Hearts a blues-inspired musical gumbo! With a sound anchored in the blues, the band traverse sizeable sonic territory, incorporating folk, and flourishes of rock and reggae that all add up to a very tasty musical gumbo”. Newcastle Live May 2021
“This is like a sonic time machine that can take you way back to a simpler time, filled with awe and wonder.” Nkechi Anele, Roots ‘N’ All, Triple J
