Method brings Australian Roots Music to The Stag this Friday

Bill Jacobi’s musical education began as a 10 year old in South Carolina, through the backroads of America, through Ireland and into the birth of Punk in London. Together with San Francisco born muso, Frank Corby they bridge the gap between Americana Swamp and the Celts, evoking the journey folk music has made across the Atlantic and Pacific to end up with a unique Australian sound.  The duo play The Stag & Hunter Hotel in Mayfield this Friday night, May 27.

Method deliver a rhythm driven roots experience with a lyrical heart. Built on the skeletal combination of amped up acoustic guitar, drum kit and vocal harmonies, Method play an eclectic amalgamation of swamp/rock, alt-county and hillbilly funk, with a strong sense of folk and roots tradition.

Their 1st full length album, Grits was launched in 2001, featuring guest performances from a number of their musical cohorts, making this release a bigger more fleshed out album. Times Like These followed in 2007, marking a return to a more roots based sound and their latest, Tales From The New Frontier (2015) sees the addition of lap slide and banjo to the mix.

Bill and Frank have collectively shared the stage, studio and tour van with the likes of Floyd Vincent, Gangagang, Warumpi Band, The Bondi Cigars, Goanna, Chris Wilson, Neil Murray, Shane Howard, Kevin Connolly (USA), The Stiff Gins, Babalu, Tim Gaze and Dave Debs; but to hear them together is to hear them on their own ground.

Don’t miss it.
