The Waifs  — August 13  —  Concert begins at 7 pm, gates open at 6 pm

Beloved Australian folk rock band, The Waifs are returning to North America with a 5-piece sound that’s better than ever. A trip that began in a van in 1992, with the three troubadours playing gigs anywhere in Australia that would have them, has led The Waifs to multiple ARIA awards, platinum albums and successful tours across the world, including opening for Bob Dylan in North America and Australia in 2003.

The hard yards in those early days paid off in terms of their career, but also bound the three of them together as friends. The stripped down, cohesive return to their original sound in their sixth studio album release, “Temptation” (2011), demonstrates that for these old friends, true chemistry never fades.

“There’s no danger of mistaking The Waifs’ broad Strive for anything less than Aussie, as the Simpson sisters deliver tales of home and heartland – and of missing them – over the infectious amalgam of country, roots, and folk. At this point, listeners see the essential connection – between the band as players, and the band and audience, which is the source of the Waifs’ success.” — Rolling Stone
