The Maes

The Maes (sisters Maggie and Elsie Rigby) grew up the children of folk musicians, immersed in folk festivals, choir rehearsals and campfire sessions. This formative experience helped to shape two of Australian folk music’s most respected songwriters, singers and instrumentalists. The sisters have been touring the world since 2014, playing some of the world’s most prestigious roots music festivals, including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival (USA), Edmonton Folk Festival (Canada) and the Woodford Folk Festival and WOMADelaide. Their 2019 self-titled release, ‘The Maes’ won Best Folk/Roots Album of the Year at the Music Victoria Awards. “Quite simply breathtaking” – Rhythms Magazine.
