The sometimes foot-stomping, somewhat heart-breaking, contemporary folk darlings of Oh Pep! are bringing some Australian flair to UP+DT 2016! Oh Pep gets its Oh from Olivia Hally (vocals, guitar) and its Pep! from Pepita Emmerichs (violin, mandolin), and are rounded out by Stuart West (double bass), Paddy Montgomery (mandolin, bouzouki) and Justin Olsson (drums, percussion). Olivia and Pepita started their musical journey together while attending the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary school in 2009, Their harmonies are sweet, with lyrics that are thoughtful, deep, funny and poetic. At not even 23 years old, Oh Pep! had been awarded Young Folk Performer of the year in 2014, and nominated in the Best Folk Roots category by The Age Music Victoria Award. With three EPs under their belts, and a full length album to be released at the end of June, the folk darlings have been mesmerizing audiences with their sweet harmonies, and funny and poetic lyrics while touring across Australia, the US, and Europe. UP+DT is one of their few Canadian stops, so be sure not to miss them before they jet back across the pond.
