Continuing the Gigs on Govetts showcase sessions will be free live music with touring act The Ocelots from 6.30pm on Sunday, March 1.

The Ocelots are 22-year-old Irish twins Brandon and Ashley Watson. They have crafted their songwriting and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich harmonies and bare, raw acoustic folk. Their music perfectly embodies the breezy effortlessness of early Bob Dylan, and Simon and Garfunkel.

During the 2018 summer festival season The Ocelots performed all across Ireland, UK and mainland Europe and also toured with acts such as Jack Johnson, Glen Hansard, Hudson Taylor and Isaac Gracie.

They are now widely known for their instinctual expression in live performances, unique blood harmonies and stories full of wit, charm and spontaneity.

Now situated in Leipzig, Germany, The Ocelots will release their debut album in early 2020. The album contains elements of folk and alternative rock; while alos being melancholic and indelible. Coinciding with the release they will retrun to Australia in Spring 2020, before continuing on into Europe's festival season.

The Ocelots live set combines all that is great about live folk music, so come and be charmed by the charismatic duo.

They play on Sunday, March 1 at 6.30pm at Blackheath Bar & Bistro, 35-41 Govetts Leap Rd, Blackheath.
