Charm of Finches
multi award winning Melbourne Duo.
On Saturday 18th April The Acoustic Picnic presents multi award-winning contemporary folk duo Charm of Finches - an evening of stunning arrangements of original chamber folk, jaw dropping sibling vocal harmonies, and poetic, intimate songwriting. Melbourne sisters Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes will finish touring their second album "Your Company" around Australia with an evening of beauty and candour. A genre-defying album born of turbulence and grief, the sisters' songwriting explore themes of love and loss, a melancholia made sublimely beautiful by the duo’s compelling ethereal vocal harmonies and spacious string arrangements.
“folk purity…affecting and emotional” The Music
“'Your Company’ is a deep ocean swaying and heaving with dark tales, swirling melodies and astounding songs that float upon a hundred lovely stringed things. Songs filled with beauty, wisdom and magic with some of the sweetest ‘blood harmonies’ you’re likely to hear this side of this century! ” - Khristian Mizzi

Winners of the DYRSL “Young, Live and Local Competition and Warringah Mall’s Star Search at the beginning of 2012, Natalie and Julia teamed up as 8 year olds. They have gone on to perform successfully in eisteddfods, talent shows, fundraisers and various public events as a duet and were featured on Channel 9’s Australia’s Got Talent in 2013 where they reached the semi-finals. Although accomplished singers in their own right, the magic happens when they come together with a vocal blend well beyond their years.
