Golden Sounds

  • Major Tom's 57 Piper St Kyneton, VIC, 3444 Australia (map)

Major Tom's hosts an afternoon of hand-picked gems from the Goldfields region.



Sat Major Tom’s 12:30pm – 1:10pm  

Come and see one of the tallest blues guitar players in Kyneton…The Right Royal & Mighty Regal King Maxwell. His music has its roots in the acoustic Blues & Rag of the 1920s, 30s & 40s. If you listen carefully, you’ll even hear some jazz-type business in there; such is his incredible versatility and dexterity. He is always very well dressed. His moustache is powerful beyond measure. King Maxwell has played in all sorts of places from busking to the Big Top…and all points in between. Today, he is just two words short of being WORLD FAMOUS.



Sat Major Tom’s 1:30pm – 2:10pm

Glenehope farmer and Australian folk artist Marty McKenna is a genuine local gem. Acoustic songs rich in narrative and sung with his warm, unique and powerful voice



Sat Major Tom’s 2:30pm – 3:10pm

Roots, Americana outfit from the Macedon Ranges. Original songs with powerful harmonies and intelligent musicality. Evocative music that cannot be ignored.



Sat Major Tom’s 3:30pm – 4:10pm

Bittah Swami is a garage outfit from Macedon Ranges, influenced by the screeching sounds of San Franciscan's John Dwyer and Tim Presley. They lay down weird and funky fuzz to burn your ear holes and fill your lungs. The outfit has been playing tiny shows in basements and garages around Melbourne for the past four years and is ready to expand their fuzz-wah to the hospitable Major Toms.
