The Crooked Fiddle Band, WOMADelaide, March 12
Jess Randall arrives on stage, and judging by the bristling quiver of fiddle bows strapped to her back, she clearly means business.
Randall deftly swaps between her bows as needed, as The Crooked Fiddle Band segue from slow sorrowful tunes to frantic uptempo numbers.
The Milkman – inspired by a Rastafarian Milkman – is a particular highlight.
The kind of act born to play the Frome St stage amidst the fruitbats, The Crooked Fiddle lifted the WOMADelaide crowd to their feet with their distinctive brand of “chainsaw folk”.
