Julia Johnson is an Australian singer, songwriter, producer and multi instrumentalist. Her voice has been compared to Florence Welch, Joni Mitchell, Bat For Lashes, and even a ‘treacherous mountain river’. On stage, Johnson’s warm presence and unpredictable banter usher you in to her folk-tinged musical universe, where she brandishes antique folk instruments with exceptional and unusual techniques.
Julia is a TripleJ Unearthed awarded songwriter who has supported iconic Australian artists including Courtney Barnett, Tim Rogers, Jen Cloher, Bob Evans, and Pete Murray as well as performing at folk and contemporary music festivals such as National Folk Festival and Groovin The Moo.
Love the way this one swells up and up, and also the blend of the autoharp with more modern production; really pretty.

THE WINTER COLLECTIVEConcert 3: Novo FadoSaturday 18 June, doors 6.30pm
Saturday night the audience will be transported to Portugal with the sounds of Fado Music – both traditional and contemporary styles performed by two groups – Alma Orquestra and Fado duo Ricardo da Silva and Sonia de Freitas.
Ricardo da Silva is a Fado singer who has a passion for his cultural heritage and music. He moved to Sydney from his homeland, Portugal, in 2004 and has been sharing his love of Fado with Australian audiences, moving them with his expression of saudade, for many years. Sonia de Freitas is a pianist originally from South Africa who shares Portuguese heritage with Ricardo. Together they form a duo reveling in the stories of their heritage and exploring new interpretations of Fado inspired by global artists such as Camané, Carlos do Carmo and Amália Rodrigues
Alma Orquestra perform their imaginative interpretations of Portuguese Fado and folk tunes of the Iberian Peninsula. Their originals draw inspiration from Portuguese styles and are infused with elements of jazz, pop and classical music. From traditional to modern and original Portuguese song, Alma Orquestra’s music tells a story and embodies a unique sound and freshness, capturing the curiosity of their listeners and taking them on new and soulful journeys. Alma Orquestra wowed audiences across the country when they featured on SBS’s Destination Flavour urovision with Adam Liaw.
THE WINTER COLLECTIVEConcert 4: Eishan EnsembleSunday 19 June, doors 1.30pm

Variously described as “Persian chamber jazz” and “Middle-Eastern jazz fusion”, Eishan defies neat labels.

Formed in 2016 and currently based in Sydney – Australia, Eishan has toured internationally and nationally for numerous times and performed at the most well-known festivals and concert halls. They have been a nominated for ARIA Awards and APRA Art Music Awards 2021.
