Bio

Truly authentic, naturally charismatic, and delightfully entertaining, Lawrence Menard (USA) and Clare Quinn (AUS) are the transpacific troubadours known as ‘Those Folk’.
With Lawrence’s Cajun beginnings and Californian upbringing melding with Clare’s grounding in Australian folk music, their musical inspiration is diverse and ever expanding. Their worlds collided on the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland and the pair have been an inseparable duo ever since. Imagine Americana legends Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, with a dynamic twist.
Their intimate stage show is constantly evolving with the introduction of new instruments and dynamic songwriting. Vocal harmonies are featured alongside guitar, octave mandolin, banjo, accordion, harmonica, and percussion. Their uplifting, thought-filled lyrics tell tales of travels, love, nostalgia and hope. Their amazing musical talent and heartfelt compassionate view of life shines through in each and every original composition. Their genuine stage presence and joyful melodies will have you smiling right from the start and all the way through the encore!
Those Folk make not just folk music, but music for all sorts of folk.
