Cup Weekend 2024

Alison Ferrier & Shorty

10.30 - 11.45am, Saturday 29 October
Wangaratta High School

Alison Ferrier delivers an evocative and emotive crafted collection of atmospheric folk, laid-back country, rock ‘n’ roll, and rockin’ blues, boosted by her bruising electric guitar riffs. As well as tapping into early British blues and rock influences, her lyrically rich, slow-build numbers showcase her talent for melody. Her vocals are effortlessly refined, with conviction and vulnerability in equal measure.  Joining her on swamp-soaked drums and percussion is Anthony ‘Shorty’ Shortte. Alison and Shorty are often seen together with Kerri Simpson in the award-winning blues trio Opelousas.
