The Heart Collectors - Sunday Matinee Concert
Fiddler's Dream is so pleased to have the opportunity to showcase The Heart Collectors! They had been scheduled for a concert in April of 2020, that show was cancelled because of worldwide COVID shutdowns. They are now back on tour!
With the sentimentality of 70s inspired harmonies, Australian four piece Epic Folk band The Heart Collectors have graced stages around the world, accomplishing three international tours and releasing four studio albums. Picked as one of the Top Bands To See at SXSW (The Austin Statesman), this independent group have found creative ways of staying connected throughout the 2020-21 lockdowns and the cancellation of their USA and UK tours.
The Hearts released their album Time To Say I Love You (2020) one single a fortnight, featured on Spotify with The Guardians Australian Music for Isolated Times. In August 2020, The Hearts were selected to be 1 of 12 Australian artists for the Premier Event Global Music Match a world wide initiative to connect musicians and industry in the face of COVID-19 restrictions.
Carrying the momentum in 2021, they joined Folk Alliance International (FAI) for Folk Unlocked Showcases, ISOL-AID Unlocked, and were considered as one of the outstanding groups of the week by John Platt, founder of New Folk Initiative. As a part of FAI's Artists In (Their) Residence programme, The Hearts were commissioned to cowrite a song about the effects of COVID-19 with Native American singer/songwriter Charly Lowry, titled 'Navigating to Hope'. The project's aim - to raise awareness for the Village Fund charity. As possibilities opened for touring in Australia again, The Hearts embarked on a Statewide tour of Tasmania in January/February 2021 to sold out audiences. In May, they showcased in Canadian Music Week as Official Artists, picked as one of the Top 10 international acts to see by FEMMUSIC.
With the advent of further lockdowns and restrictions in Australia, The Hearts returned to virtual performances and house concerts in the second half of 2021. Capitalising on new connections from the FAI conference - they performed with NB House Concerts, Arhaven House Concerts (at North West Regional Folk Alliance) and more. In January 2022 The Heart Collectors showcased for Believe in Music Global Livestream at the NAMM Conference, California. Followed by Official Virtual Showcases at Folk Alliance Conference in May 2021. Out of restrictions, The Heart Collectors returned to live performances mid 2022, with a sold out east coast tour.
The Heart Collectors returned to the US in February to officially showcase at FAI's 2023 conference in Kansas City, and are making a stop at Fiddler's Dream (!!), followed by a tour of Europe.
With soaring cello, intricate guitar, sparkling mandolin, boot banging banjo, passionate strikes of a tambourine and the thundering of the bodhran, these four charismatic performers create real musical synergy, marrying progressive folk/rock sensibilities and clean classical precision.
