Halfway to Forth

Contemporary Folk/Roots

Halfway to Forth are brothers Dan & Kyle Lizotte. If you head up past the old steam railway, over the river and round the bend you’ll arrive at their family home, about halfway along the road to a little town called Forth on the NW coast of Tasmania, Australia.

Their music is honest and rootsy, with folk, country and blues shades. These boys attend both schools, Old and New, and stick to writing what they know.  You’ll hear more than a little foot stompin’, banjo pluckin’ and bottle neck slidin’.

Shaun Kirk w/ Halfway to Forth

  • The Wheatsheaf Hotel 39 George St Thebarton, SA AUS (map)

The forthcoming album 'Steer the Wheel' is Kirk's most experimental and electrified record to date, seeing him explore beyond the blues influences that have characterised his previous work. Shaun attributes the recent purchase of a record player and a rapidly growing vinyl collection to the shift in his song writing. With influences ranging from rock, soul and rhythm & blues. 'Steer the Wheel' is a collaborative record, which has enjoyed an inclusive approach from conception to completion. Not only did Shaun gather an abundance of talented musicians to assist in the recording process of the album, he also drew together many of his loyal fans to be a part of the album's creation through a crowd funding campaign. As well as assisting with the financial pressure of producing an independent album, crowd funding will allow Kirk to donate a proportion of the sales profit to Orphfund, a non for profit charity helping abandoned children across the globe.\
