Timbers at Wintermoon
THE TIMBERS are ready to hit the stage at the 20th annual Wintermoon Festival for the first time later this month.
Singer, guitarist and keyboard player Simon Basey said the band had never attended the festival before and were looking forward to meeting the locals and hearing other acts.
"We've always found with these kinds of festivals, there's a really good community spirit," he said.
"We're really looking forward to meeting some lovely locals."
The band boasts a diverse range of musical influence such as folk, country, gypsy, Celtic, punk, party anthem and blue grass.
With Wintermoon Festival recognised for its wide variety of musical acts, the Timbers' unique style is sure to fit the bill and be a favourite among festival goers.
Simon said the band encouraged dancing from the crowd and expected a high level of energy.
"We have a high energy set of songs, harmonies, live trumpet, brass and just fun dancing music," he said.
The Wintermoon Festival is the last stop for The Timbers as their album launch tour comes to a close.
"This is the last gig of our album launch tour which began in February," he said.
"We'll be going out with a bang!"
The Timbers join a line-up including Things of Stone and Wood, All Strings Attached, the David Flower Band and more.
Camping at all four sites is already sold out due to the festival's growing popularity but day tickets will be available at the gate and covering the program from 8am to midnight each day.
