Described as “the most unique duo on the south coast”, Tilba’s very own Stitch (Roxy Long and Zoey Pepper) are the most unlikely fusion of bitchin’ banjo and classical bassoon, playing a veritable patchwork of covers from vintage jazz through to retro pop stitched up like you’ve never heard them before! Add into the mix tight close-harmony singing and scatting and you will be saying “what the?” and “I love it” in the same breath.
Both professional musicians from remarkably different backgrounds, these days they are neighbours and regular gigging partners in crime! Stitch were the 2019 Narooma Busking Champions, as well as 3rd Place recipients in the 2019 Australian Nationals, and after a 2020 of lockdowns and rehearsals over the fence they are delighted to be entering the Championships online!
Stitch’s video entry was made live at the Tilba market on Sat Dec 19. You can see more of what Stitch are regularly up to on the Facebook page “Stitch-duo”.
