Hat Fitz and Cara plus support from Matt Taylor

Hat Fitz is a veteran wild man of the blues scene in Australia. He has a record 18 straight appearances at Byron’s East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, a record that is not likely to ever be broken, and one which bears testimony to his amazing live performances and popularity with festival goers.

Cara draws on her soul background, and although blessed with a sensational voice she was not content to be labelled as ‘just a singer’. She has taken to drumming duties as well as washboards, flute and tin whistle, sometimes all at once.

Their festival touring circuit takes in Australia, the UK, North America and Europe where their modern blend of old-timey-influenced sounds is equally at home in a variety of settings from folk or Americana main stages to blues and acoustic venues. While the singer/songwriters are both multi-instrumentalists, it's Fitzy's weathered vocals and soaring blues-soaked guitar combined with Cara's pounding drums and soulful voice that show them at the peak of their creative power.

Winners of Blues Album Of The Year at the 2013 Australian Chain Awards and UK Spiral Earth, Hat Fitz & Cara also won Best Vocal Of The Year at the 2015 Chain Awards and were finalists in the 2015 Memphis International Blues Challenge in the USA.

Reviews by Sam Cutler ex manager for Rolling stones and Greatful Dead

"One person literally blew my mind. I was walking passed the blues tent looking to find something for breakfast, when a voice belted out of the ether that left me standing still in the middle of the path and listening. What a voice!! I was transfixed and HAD to find out to whom it belonged. I made my way to Bluestown and was surprised to see two people, a woman playing drums (and singing) and a man playing guitar. Cara Robinson the singing drummer, has to my ear the finest female blues voice I have ever heard in Australia - bar none!
