Sam Buckingham and Kent Eastwood
Having traversed the last five years together performing at numerous festivals around Australia, Kent Eastwood and Sam Buckingham are a musical match made in heaven. Distinctive and accomplished solo artists in their own rights, Buckingham and Eastwood come together to share in a folk, pop and alt country collection of their original works and favourite cover songs. With Eastwood now calling Germany home and Buckingham about to embark on an open-ended overseas writing adventure, this is a rare performance not to be missed.
