Project Description


Austral are a high-energy, four-piece Australian group featuring Angus Barbary on fiddle, vocals and bouzouki, Caity Brennan on fiddle and guitar, Rhys Crimmin on guitar, percussion, didgeridoo and vocals, and Connor Hoy on Uilleann pipes, flute and whistle.

All four members have played at festivals all over Australia in different projects and have come together to form an Australian/Celtic supergroup. With influences from bands such as The East Pointers, Trouble in the Kitchen and We Banjo Three, Austral have had overwhelming love and support whilst busking on the streets of Melbourne and have developed their own high-energy sound that has audiences up and dancing. Austral are carving a new face for Celtic music in Australia and are a band not to be missed!
