Fueled by a passionate dedication to their art, nights spent jamming tunes round fires, and a sense of soul sisterhood, Wild Thyme is an exciting meeting between three of Australia’s most celebrated instrumental musicians in their fields. Coming from diverse musical backgrounds, the juxtaposition of Arlene Fletcher (double bass), Katie Crane (guitar) and Laura Targett (fiddle) infuses their varied musical passions into a brew that defies genre.
Wild and upbeat, tender and soulful, their outstanding instrumental skills and sweet vocal harmonies mesmerise audiences. From the cutting edge of bluegrass, to the spellbinding dance music of the Balkans, the toe tapping swing gigs of a bygone era and beyond, these three women bring it all back home with an infectious joy of music, a pinch of sass and a rare and disarming authenticity.
With a healthy respect for tradition, Wild Thyme also have one foot firmly planted in the contemporary world and the original compositions they are crafting are gaining acclaim.
