Two Fires Festival - Carrying the flame of Judith Wright's passions …

Saturday Duo of Duos

A couple of couples, two pairs of superb entertainers, two different “different” acts, an evening of fun, wicked fun and pop-folk-love.


Part I

The renowned

Shortis and Simpson

John Shortis writes songs and scripts, plays keyboard, and spends hours reading newspapers and delving into libraries and archives. Moya Simpson sings, mimics accents, plays characters, and has a passion for Eastern European music.

Their combined skills make up Shortis and Simpson, producers, writers and performers of productions and projects that are always surprising, original, innovative and wide in their range of styles and genres.

Based in Canberra, they specialise in shows that reflect Australian history and politics in a way that is funny, satirical and informative, with the odd gut-wrenching moment.


Part II

Pop-Folk-Love Duo Microwave Jenny

Microwave Jenny is Australian husband/wife duo Tessa and Brendon Boney who describe their music as Pop/Folk/Love.

A small-town girl and a Wagga Wagga boy got together …

A decision which has seen them winning awards, working on film soundtracks and playing such festivals as The Woodford Folk Festival, Peats Ridge Festival, The Dreaming Festival, Festival of the Sun, and Bluesfest in Byron Bay to name a few.

…  independent, self managed, touring, musicians who pride themselves on the DIY nature of their career.  …  more
