Swamp Thing

Michael Barker, longtime drummer for the John Butler Trio is a musical freak. He can play drums, keyboards and sing simultaneously. While that’s enough to make jaws drop, combine that with Grant Haua’s deep and wordly voice flying over a furious, blues guitar style and you can do only one of two things. Dance or stare in disbelief…then dance.

This two man Blues/Roots juggernaut Swamp Thing has recorded two albums ‘Balladeer’ and ‘Primordium’ since forming in 2010. Their energetic and infectious live performances have taken them to some of the top music events around Australia, including WOMAD-elaide, Woodford Folk Festival and Blue Mountains.

Fresh from taking their swampy dirty sounds to the Baton Rouge Blues Festival, Swamp Thing creep into town just for one night…
