Into the Bush

Featuring Jenny M. Thomas, Chris Lewis and Dan Witton, Bush Gothic performs tales of Australia’s dark history retold. Think songs of criminal women and convict men, treachery and transportation that have been ripped from the Australian songbook and put back together in strange and beautiful ways.
They were once known as Jenny M. Thomas & the System. When their debut album, Bush Gothic, was met with much love, they decided that to be a better fit. The songs remain as strange and beautiful as ever. With assistance from The Lonely String Quartet, the band’s new album, The Natural Selection Song Book, is now available. Old Castlemaine Gaol, Castlemaine – December 6.
