    Special Guest: Indigo Hue

    Performing both shows, we are excited to bring you Singer-songwriter Indigo Hue (fka Gracecyn) makes self-proclaimed “groovy-sad songs” that get you in your feels AND on the dance floor. The multi-instrumentalist delivers indie rock with the sounds of pop, blues and a sprinkle of jazz. Indigo writes from a place of vulnerability, drawing on her experiences of heartbreak, growing up, independence and self respect.   
    As a member of the band Glass Elevator, Indigo supported Approachable Members of Your Local Community on their 2020 Australian tour. Under her former alias Gracecyn, her latest single ‘Matters’ captures the youth experience over grungy guitars and an infectiously catchy melody.  Growing up in Melbourne with a musical family has been a source of inspiration for Indigo, and she often works with her brothers Jarith Hughes and Brannon Hughes who are also a musicians. Now living in the Snowy Valley Region, New South Wales, she is currently working out of her home studio creating her debut EP.

    The Ocelots (IRL) are heading back to Australia in early 2020 to play shows and festivals all over the country, showcasing a set list of new songs to be released on their album due out March 27th 2020. Situated in Wexford Ireland, 22 year old twins Brandon and Ashley combine to create The Ocelots.

    The Ocelots have performed all across Ireland, UK and mainland Europe and also toured with acts such as Jack Johnson, Glen Hansard, Hudson Taylor and Isaac Gracie.

    The Ocelots live set combines all that is great about folk music, so come and be charmed by the charismatic duo.


    Playing on the theatre stage, this will be an intimate but all inclusive event after a big day out at Tumbafest.
