Hat Fitz and Cara
Hat Fitz is a "veteran" wild man of the blues scene in Australia. He has a record 18 straight appearances at Byron's East Coast Blues and Roots Festival. The combination with Cara Robinson has been described as a match made in heaven and after witnessing a live performance and listening to their music it's impossible to dispute that description.

Hat Fitz has, over the last few years, increased his European touring dates from what was originally a two week "look about" in Ireland to a yearly full-tilt 4 month multi-country extravaganza.
His "take-no-prisoners" reputation of years gone by may have mellowed ever so slightly, but audience reaction worldwide is always the same, no matter if it's an intimate room or a major festival, they drift off into the early mornings, covered in smiles and drenched with sweat.
