The Weeping Willows | It has been a crazy year for us

The Weeping Willows is Australian Americana Folk duo, Andrew Wrigglesworth and Laura Coates. Two lovers who write and perform their music around the world, leaving audiences in a trance.

Their music is poetic,with an eerie undertone of darkness and doom, yet capturing the intense romance between them, has the listeners coming back for more.

The story of how Andrew and Laura found each other, and their journey thus far was published on Music Talks in June of this year.

Andrew and Laura tell us how their year has panned out since the release of their album, 'Before Darkness Comes A-Callin' and whats left for 2016.

The Weeping Willows

"It has been a crazy year for us over here at The Weeping Willows camp.

We released our sophomore album, 'Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’ back in April and have since toured to 7 Australian states and territories as well as the USA!

We’ve met so many beautiful people on our journeys and had so much fun sharing our new music.

We are so grateful to each and every person who has bought our album or come to our shows. It’s certainly been our best year yet… With more to come!

It’s festival season here in Australia so we hit the ground running once we got back from the States, performing at Welcome to Morrisonville – Americana Festival with Kinky Friedman and Hayes Carll in QLD (such a dream come true!), before heading over to SA for the wonderful Fleurieu Folk Festival, which is always one of our favourites.

This November we’ll be performing at Australian Music Week in Cronulla, NSW, the Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival and Healesville Music Festival in VIC, as part of The Round Up series of shows at Bella Union in Carlton, VIC with Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes and Ange Boxall and Live at Station Place in Werribee with Lachlan again.

And, for our final show of the year, we are honoured to be supporting the Queen of the Minor Key, Ms. Eilen Jewell at the Corner Hotel on Thursday 24th November! Many thanks to Music Talks for all of their support this year!"
