Little Quirks Bursting with Folk

Little Quirks may be young but don’t let looks fool you.

Sisters Mia and Abbey and their cousin Jaymi are aged 20, 23 and 26yo but this NSW trio have been at this indie folk caper for some time. Little Quirks combine soaring vocal harmonies, effortless folk pop songwriting, catchy melodies and pounding rhythms,. They are a breath of fresh, unbridled joy. 

Indigo FM, Arts Rutherglen and Destination Rutherglen are thrilled to be bringing the dynamic trio to Rutherglen as the perfect prelude to the 2023 Busking Rutherglen Festival.

Indigo FM’s Scott Landells describes Little Quirks as the ideal band to kick off the weekend’s Busking championships.

“It’s hard to imagine a better fit or story arc. Little Quirks are the real deal. Their Facebook page has cute videos of them busking at Terrigal Beach and local markets in 2014, aged 11, 14 and 17. Last year they did 2 tours of the UK and also the huge South by South West Music Conference in USA. We are so lucky to have them come to Rutherglen.” 

Tickets are $50 or $45 for members of Indigo FM, Arts Rutherglen and Destination Rutherglen. Available here or from the Facebook event.

Doors open 6:00pm, Music from 7:15pm.

Adding even more authenticity to the Busking vibe is support act – up and coming Melbourne singer-songwriter Sadie Mustoe.

Sadie at 19yo has “years” of busking at folk festivals all around Australia, winning a swag of awards along the way, most recently at Queenscliff Music Festival’s Foot-in-the-Door 2022 and Runner-up for Folk Alliance Australia’s ‘Youth Folk Artist of the Year’ 2021.

She is described as a modern-day storyteller who takes audiences on a journey as seen through the eyes of a Melbourne teenager. Featuring a unique and captivating voice, her folk-pop songs are gripping and personal.

Indigo FM’s Scott Landells has been following Sadie’s progress for a while and describes her as a prodigious talent. “I fondly recall a 14yo Sadie taking the stage at Chiltern’s gorgeous, iconic Star Theatre on Australia Day 2018 in support of a Canadian touring group Belle Miners. At 14 Sadie confidently delivered a set of captivating original songs. In those intervening 5 years, Sadie has obviously grown into a young adult and is unsurprisingly pursuing music studies at Melbourne Uni. She is a very exciting talent.”
