Ashlea Reale & NY SLIM
Get ready to get dark and dirty with Queen of the minor key, Ashlea Reale, as she combines her Aussie
folklore with NY Slim’s American country blues/ bluegrass fretwork. Wrapped up in foot stomping rhythms
and clever lyrics, bushrangers, convicts and outlaws take centre stage.
These gals are original, but true to
tradition, and will have you captivated from the first chord to the final holla!
Ensnaring audiences with her charming stories of local outlaws, Reale’s song writing style displays her ability
to combine humour with the heartfelt through clever melodic devices. In 2019, Reale and NY Slim
collaborated on their first studio album, which was presented as a special Australian Heritage Festival concert
at Fremantle Prison.
When the occasion suits, this duo are joined on stage by a band of outlaws including
mandolin, accordion and percussion. Having performed at folk events across the country, this is an outfit to
keep an eye on!
