Category: music 605

Award-winning Australian folk trio announce four East Coast performances as part of national tour.

Australia’s The Mae Trio bring their unique contemporary twist on folk music to Canada this summer with dates across the country from Vancouver to Halifax.  The tour coincides with the release of the group’s new album Take Care Take Cover. The album premiered on Rolling Stone in April and the first single, Well Enough Alone, was one of The Alternate Root’s Top Songs of the Week.

Take Care Take Cover follows on from The Mae Trio’s debut album, Housewarming, that earned them Folk Alliance Australia Youth Award and NFSA Folk Recording of the Year and saw the group tour Australia, Canada, USA and Europe with performances at the Hydro Stadium at Celtic Connection, Glasgow, Americana Folk Festival, Nashville, Cambridge Folk Festival, UK Edmonton Folk Festival, Canada, and Port Fairy and National Folk Festivals, Australia.

The trio decamped to Nashville Tennessee to record with producer and engineer Erick Jaskowiak (Crooked Still, Tim O’Brien, Darrell Scott, The Waifs).  The album features guest performances by The Stray Bird’s Maya De’Vitry; Darrell Scott, The Time Jumper’s Jeff Taylor; Victor Krauss; Jano Rix; and Kai Welch.

Take Care Take Cover was officially released May 26, 2017.
