TYRON AND LESLEY at Woodford Folk Festival
Tyrone and Lesley are two theatrical gentlemen with ukulele's that carry wit and joy. Using the ukulele and sound bass, which is played close to the heart, the duo captivated the audience through their nonsensical lyrics and infectious rhythms. The pair met in 2000 and have released four albums and have played in various venues including Sydney Opera House and many, many festivals including our own Brisbane Festival.
Their set was one of the funniest, most entertaining live performances I've had the pleasure of seeing this past year. From 'Peppercorn' to the 'Moth Song', Tyrone and Lesley manage to play music in a way which not only makes you laugh but makes you reflect on pop culture and the lyrics, or lack of lyrics that it contain. It also makes us reflect on how something that we perceive as funny can actually be very meaningful if we take the time to unpack it.
The funniest show I've seen in a while. If you want a laugh, you'll get one. And if the 'Chicken Song' of the very scientific 'Moth Song' doesn't get stuck in your head by the end of the day then you're not doing something right.
