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’.

Alex Watts - 'Sing, Strum & Strut' EP Launch (ADL) w/ The Timbers, Halfway to Forth & The Skeleton Club


  • Rhino Room 13 Frome St Adelaide, SA, 5000 Australia

Alex Watts has announced that he will be launching his new EP, Sing, Strum & Strut, with a nine-show tour around the country this August and September. 

Having spent much of 2013 touring Australia and the UK as a solo artist, this EP was put together to showcase the quieter moments that typify an Alex Watts solo show, a sound that differs greatly from the more expansive sonics of his currently eight-piece band the Foreign Tongue (featuring members of Oh MercyEagle and the Worm and The Hello Morning).

Watts has been earning himself a reputation as one of the most exciting songwriters to come out of Melbourne in the last few years. Whether solo or backed by the Foreign Tongue, Watts’ unique blend of rock & pop draws from the wit of Elvis Costello, the swagger of Joe Strummer, and the grit and raw emotion of 1960’s RnB.

Backed by Steven Clifford of The Hello Morning, Alex Watts will be bringing the tour to Adelaide's Rhino Room on August 16th. It's going to "rock".

The Skeleton Club
Ben Roberts & Joe Murphy (The Timbers)
