Bio

Ant Mckenna and Alf are the Alt-Folk Country Samaritans bringing fun, awesome tunes and mayhem to venues throughout the land! Ant resides on the Sunshine Coast whilst Alf calls Launceston home - to play a gig they have to tour the nation.
Their Debut EP "Lucky" recieved excellent responses, with a nomination in the QMA 2018 and their Anti-Racism Track 'Your Kind' reached as high as #1 on the Unearthed Roots Chart and #6 in the Overall Chart (with 2 other tracks in the Top 5).
Their follow up LP is due for release late 2018 with another extensive tour of the East Coast with their fellow Tasmanian Buddies Cotton Pony!
Woodford Festival says, "When thinking of the quinessential Aus-folk-roots sound, it is hard to go past the good, honest story-telling fun that Alfanant bring to every show they play. Alfanant remind us all why we picked up guitars and started jamming with mates in the first place."
"Two guys, two guitars, plenty of banter and RAD rockin' folk music. What- a bloody good show!" Solbar, Maroochydore

Harmonies in the intro and a solid rockin' blues band - boy! you sure know how to make a lady smile!

This track makes you feel like a cowboy badass!

Simple little folk song for anyone coming out the otherside of a relationship. Pretty stuff

I'm always mystified by artists who can make you happy to be sad with their songs. This is one of those super lovely ones.
