Bio:  Wild Oats commenced playing together back in 2008 and is comprised of four members of the Redlands Modern Country Music Club. We enjoy playing a pretty eclectic range of music from 'middle of the road' Bluegrass to the mountain-style playing of the Appalachians and the deep south riverboat sound. We like to play tunes and songs that capture the fusion of early Irish and German Folk Music from the mountain regions with the Nashville sound that emerged with the development of radio in the 1920's. We love the inherent vocal harmonies in both Gospel and Country music and try to blend these sounds into an entertaining presentation.

Band Members:  

Peter Cathcart (guitar, mandolin, harmonica)
Greg O'Grady (guitar, banjo, harmonica)
Ron Linning (guitar, bass)

Influences:  Influences include American Bluegrass, Irish Folk, Australian Bush and Traditional Country. Artists and Songwriter influences are Iris Dement, The Cox Family, Alison Krauss & the Union Station, Steve Earle, John Prine, Ricky Skaggs and many more.

Sounds Like:  We sound like us! Do not consciously copy any particular style/sound. Like to present a broad and varying range of country music.

SYLVIASOLTAU

Sylvia’s young life was coloured with music and dance. Playing piano accordion to accompany her family singing carols around the Christmas tree became an annual pleasure. Although influenced by country music ladies such as Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton and Anne Murray in her youth, her time in country music only began around 2003. In recent times Sylvia has performed at concerts, clubs, fundraisers and non-competitive festivals then in 2015 she released her first country music CD ‘Country & Beyond’ which includes three of her own compositions.

Sylvia has also worked as a performance mentor and has initiated two vocal groups, the ‘Bellebirds’ and the ‘Sing for Joy Chorus’. Both groups aimed at encouraging over 50s to sing and perform together as a group. Sylvia has now established a monthly ‘Embers’ country music social at Cannon Hill Bowls Club – a venture that would not have been possible without help from her parents and the wonderful friends she has found in the country music scene.

The venue for the social is Redlands Modern Country Music Clubhouse, Pinklands Sports Reserve, 226 Cleveland Redland Bay Road, Thornlands. It is a semi-outdoor venue and we do suggest you bring a chair and insect repellent.

As well as Sylvia appearing, members of the Redlands Modern Country Music Club will be on stage throughout the evening offering a variety of country music entertainment. Many of club members are very experienced entertainers and you are guaranteed a lively night of music. The venue has a very relaxed atmosphere where visiting artists are invited to perform and members of the public are most welcome to attend.

Admission is $4 for members and $5 for visitors. A barbeque meal will be available and our licensed bar will be operating. Free tea and coffee is available throughout the night and a free country style supper will be served at 8:30pm.
