Brisbane based bluegrass and acoustic music group The Company announces the release of their third studio album titled “Six And Five”. The new album is The Company’s most ambitious project yet culminating in thirteen all original tracks and showcasing the band’s individual and group virtuosity, ranging from traditional bluegrass style arrangements, to through composed pieces.The project was partly funded through the support of crowd funding via the platform ‘Pozible’ with around 200 supporters on board. The Company officially launch the new album on November 5th, 2016 in Brisbane and will be touring across Australia during October and November performing at Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival in NSW, MountainGrass Festival in VIC as well as concerts across NSW, VIC, ACT, QLD and WA.
Boasting two Australian Bluegrass champions on guitar, fiddle and banjo, The Company have a passion for high-energy original and traditional acoustic music. The playing and singing is crisp, melodic and soulful. In concert you witness the band’s virtuosity but also a wry humour and engaging camaraderie.
