Celtic blues from Australia and Ireland comes to Summerside when the musical duo Hat Fitz & Cara make their first visit to Harbourfront Theatre. Hat Fitz is a veteran of the blues scene in Australia with a record 18 straight appearances at Byron’s East Coast Blues and Roots Festival. Cara draws on her soul background and although blessed with a sensational voice, has also taken to drumming duties as well as washboards, flute and tin whistle, sometimes all at once.
Blues and Soul magazine praises the duo: “Aussie bluesman Hat Fitz and Irish-born folksinger Cara Robinson are a striking pair. He is a giant raggedy-bearded man, maybe the lost member of ZZ Top who lives deep in the woods and eats anything that moves. She is a petite blonde, who barely reaches his shoulders. He has a deep, gruff Howlin’ Wolf-esqe voice while she dances with angels in her vocal. He plays wonderful resonator guitar. Her instrument is that sweet and soulful voice. It’s all she needs…”
Hat Fitz & Cara are at the Harbourfront Theatre on Saturday, September, 9th, at 7:30 PM.
