The triceps ain’t what they used to be but the funny bone has only gotten sharper. The Tuck Shop Ladies are an amalgamation of Australian folk music darlings Sam Lohs (Fruit) and Rosie Burgess (Rosie Burgess Trio). Strapping on a pair of ukuleles, the duo pull back the curtain to share an intimate selection of the often ridiculous, but always harmonious songs that were birthed in the back of a tour van, to amuse themselves.
“You get a lot more than your average school lunch from these Tuck Shop Ladies…” (Chris Thomson, Behind The Scenes).
Having played a huge number of festivals across Australia, Canada and the United States, the pair are no strangers to engaging with audiences large and small. Renowned for the joy they bring to the stage, alongside their innate musicality, the Tuck Shop Ladies do not disappoint.
Their live show is an insight into the relationship of touring musicians, and the result of what happens when everyday life is a Broadway musical. The Tuck Shop Ladies invite you into their hilarious world and leave you wanting to run away on tour with the band.
“I’ll never look at pigeons quite the same way again…” (Chris, again).
