Wild Thyme


Concert Times

Fuelled 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 regional Australia’s brilliantly talented, versatile, and captivating female artists. Coming from diverse musical and cultural backgrounds, the juxtaposition of Arlene Fletcher, double bass, Katie Crane, guitar, and Laura Targett, fiddle, infuses their varied musical passions into an exciting brew of acoustic music which defies genre, cultivating a whole new style of their own, whilst paying homage to their diverse backgrounds and individual musicianship.

Wild and upbeat, tender and soulful, their unique and virtuosic instrumental expertise, outstanding improvisation skills and sweet vocal harmonies mesmerise audiences.

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.

With influences from the cutting edge of bluegrass, to the toe tapping swing and jazz gigs of a bygone era, the spellbinding dance music of European folk traditions, a healthy scoop of contemporary pop sensibility, and the artistic confidence to explore creative freedom in innovative ways , these three women bring it all back home with an infectious joy of music, a pinch of sass, lots of laughter and a rare and disarming authenticity.
