PIERCE BROTHERS

Pat & Jack Pierce, an acoustic blues and roots duo based in Melbourne, have been playing around the traps long enough to have a certain feel for the stage. At twenty years old these twin brothers have been playing live for over 6 years, and have mustered a fair amount of musical instruments and influences between them. Instruments used at any one time onstage would include their guitars, djèmbè, bongos, stomp box, harmonica, and each their voices – which as identical twins, have a unique harmony and resonance. Add to these a bassist (Jason Withers), drummer (Sean Dewhurst), Cellist (Pru Warnok) and Violinist (Aurora Darby) and you’re left with an “experience somewhere between John Butler, Damien Rice and Carus Thompson” – Dylan Sloane (filmmaker).
