The Flyin’ A’s perform Americana with a Texas Kick. This husband and wife duo hails from Austin, Texas. You can hear their Texas roots in all they do. This high energy duo is famous for their top notch songwriting, breathtaking harmonies, and exceptional live performance. Their latest album You Drive Me Crazy was selected to be on the 2017 first round Grammy Ballot and has taken them on tour around the US, UK, EU and now they are headed to NZ for the first time. From Stuart Adamson’s outstanding lead guitar work and gritty vocals to Hilary Claire Adamson’s powerhouse vocal gymnastics and lilting harmonies, it is no wonder this duo is quickly gaining momentum both at home and abroad. They combine the best of Texas country, southern blues, folk and gospel to create an original sound that is all their own.
Americana roots duo Mark Viator & Susan Maxey owe their musical chemistry to the
thunderstorm that brought them together at the Kerrville Folk Festival, back in
1991. They soon found themselves taking root in the Austin music scene. From the
early days of open mics at the Chicago House, the smoky stage at the Austin
Outhouse, and the intimate acoustics of the Cactus Café, Mark and Susan honed their
craft over many nights and countless shows. These days you will find them
performing at venues as far flung as NeWorlDeli in Austin, Tiny’s in Santa Fe, the
Laughing Goat in Boulder, or Studio E in Northern California.
A Viator Maxey show brings you an ever-evolving repertoire of original songs about
highways, hurricanes, red tail hawks, and love gone right. Their tightly woven vocal
arrangements are underscored by Mark’s National slide guitar and distinctive
acoustic lead playing. Susan’s soulful voice is an instrument all its own. Together,
they deliver a powerful show that draws on the rhythms of South Louisiana and the
timeless qualities of the Texas troubadours.
