By their own admission, Crooked Fiddle Band are “like a pig with shark’s teeth“. By that, the Sydney quartet mean they take a multitude of world music, rip it apart and make it their own, with plenty of added bite. The group delivers gypsy punk mashed with bluegrass, swamp and near-metal in a dark, frenetic hoedown. To balance things out Emma Davis is supporting, whose creamy voice and dreamy tunes are so sweet she’s like a cloud with sunshine teeth.
