Darling Downs, The

The Darling Downs have finally emerged from the bluegrassy nolle in that far off mountain dreamland they call home to take up residence in your own fair, lowland city, Melbourne. Their Appalachian lullabies will caress your rock bruised eardrums for the first time as they weave a spell composed of equal parts torch balladry and hillbilly picking.

Oh all right…the Darling Downs aren’t from the mountains but from right under your noses as they are in fact…Died Pretty vocaliser and song-smith Ron Peno and former lord of darkness Kim Salmon. The Darling Downs may not be from them thar hills but rest assured, they do play Appalachian lullabies and their music will caress and weave.
