Folk and Roots at Guildford: City of Swan supporting gig

PERTH Folk and Roots Club, supported by the City of Swan, is organising the next Folk and Roots @ Guildford on March 18 at the Mechanics Institute Hall, 20 Meadow Street, Guildford.

BoobyTrap and Kerry B Ryan will perform, supported by the John McNair and Keith Anthonisz duet.

“BoobyTrap are a five-member Hills-based band that incorporate tribal rhythms, crazy waltzes and pop beats to their original music and unique cover versions,” club president Keith Anthonisz said.

“Affectionately known as The Boobs to their fans and musical colleagues, their influences range from acapella and heart-wrenching ballads, to edgy folk-tinged pop songs and rollicking sea shanties.”

BoobyTrap’s ability to combine these different genres of music gives their music a unique touch.

Whether singing unaccompanied vocal harmonies or utilizing instruments such as Djembe drums, mandolins, acoustic guitars and electric bass, they always capture your attention with big personalities and great harmonies.

BoobyTrap has played at the Bickley Harvest Festival, Hills Sounds shows, the Lesmurdie Club and other hills venues.

Kerry B Ryan is a blues guitarist, born in North Queensland and now living in the Hills.

Kerry first picked up a guitar at age 13, performing his original blues songs, as well as covers inspired by Freddie King, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Robert Johnson.
