About Dave Wright & The Midnight Ramblers

Dave Wright & The Midnight Ramblers
City born but country raised, when Dave Wright puts pen to paper and pick to guitar strings he knocks out epics and ravers and boozers about girls, cars, Australia, mariticide, Diggers, truckers, sadness, sickness, drunks, heartbroken mothers, angry fathers, desperate sons ... and death. Lots of death. It’s a dark road rutted by Holden rust buckets and RSL relics but between 2012-2021 Dave and his band the Midnight Electric released 4 albums and 2 EPS of searing roots rock music.
In 2017 however, Dave turned his attention to his other love: old time music, and formed the Midnight Ramblers as a side project to satisfy his love of bluegrass, folk, country, and storytelling songs. Featuring long time stalwarts Rob Barber and Tim Cavanagh, plus fiddle player Connor Ross- Hicks, the Ramblers initially delved deep into Dave's vast catalogue to re-imagine some of his most popular tunes into down home country and bluegrass stompers. As the folk bug bit deep, Dave devoted more and more time to writing for the Ramblers and in 2019 they released their first long player, the ominously titled Turn Out The Lights. Mick Thomas had this to say about Turn Out The Lights:
“If the shirt fits then maybe you should wear that shirt. After years of playing his beloved Melbourne town to a committed bunch of followers in full barnstorming brass laden electric mode Turn Out the Lights sees Dave Wright and his core band in acoustic navy- bluegrass style and you know what? It works. It’s a different shirt for sure, but it looks good on him.”
Playing old- time style, gathered around one microphone with big harmonies and lashings of rolling mandolin and soaring fiddle, Dave Wright & The Midnight Ramblers began playing shows in earnest in 2019 and appeared at The Western Weekender in 2020, Out On The Weekend in 2021, Yackandandah Folk Festival in 2023, and on supports to Mick Thomas’ Roving Commision. They will be playing Newport Folk Festival in June before departing on their Small Towns Tour throughout regional Victoria in July 2023.
