David Rovics & Alistair Hulett
touring Australia, December 2008 and January 2009
David Rovics is based in Portland, Oregon, and has been called the musical voice of the progressive movement in the US. Since the mid-90's he has spent most of his time on the road, playing hundreds of shows every year throughout the world. He has shared the stage with musicians like Billy Bragg and the Indigo Girls. More importantly, he's really good. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, and he will make the revolution irresistible.
Alistair Hulett was born in Glasgow and moved to Australia at the age of eighteen where his band Roaring Jack plyed its punk/rockabilly take on Celtic folk, from the mid '80s until the early '90s. They played with acts like Billy Bragg and The Pogues. He eventually returned to the UK and most recently he joined with several Yorkshire based musicians to form a semi-electric band called The Malkies.
