Canberra-based band Silvertonic will be launching its debut recording, Little Boat, at Smith’s Alternative in Canberra on Sunday, 14 April, from 4pm to 6pm. At the launch, the band will perform songs from the CD as well as new material.

Band members Miranda Bradley (vocals, guitar and occasional dobro), Peggy Daroesman (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Bob Hefner (vocals, banjo and fiddle) are all performers and songwriters, and devotees of the classic alt-folk songbook.

Little Boat is a thoughtfully and lovingly crafted vessel that carries an eclectic cargo of seven original Silvertonic songs and tunes celebrating the people and places of our past and voicing our hope for a future that is always made brighter by music.

Here’s what Ruth Hazleton, multi-talented musician, singer and folklorist, had to say about the CD: “Silvertonic deliver well-crafted original songs rooted firmly in the traditions of American folk and country music. Their debut release, Little Boat, combines intricate string-band arrangements with rich three-part harmonies to complement each band member’s original work. Some of the work and writing on the album is just gorgeous!”
