Artist biography

Magic Tortoise
Live performance new comer Matt Cattanach teams up with Adelaide Blues scene stalwart Bas Tijdhof (Mighty Night Owls) to bring you their lively acoustic blend of folk and blues.
Songs inspired by a quirky take on everyday life, the great beauty of the Australian landscape, and human folly and triumph come alive through Matt’s fragile vocals and intricate finger picking combined with Bas’ soaring lead and assured harmonies.
Rich storytelling, punchy 12 bar, whimsical pop, lush open tunings and unconventional lyrics are the vehicles for this pair to animate the stage with improvisational flair and unadulterated joy at making music together.
