Hugh McGinlay & the Recessive Genes

Having played around the globe, the Yarra seemed like the next step. With their new album Bliss enjoying extensive airplay Hugh McGinlay and the Recessive Genes come to the Yarra for a special Sunday show.

Hugh has toured extensively through Europe, Asia and New Zealand as well as home, sharing the stage with the like of Billy Bragg, Badly Drawn Boy and Aldous Harding. Known for deft songcraft, varied styles and beautiful lyrics, Hugh and band have built a reputation on their live shows.

Ranging from tender ballads to hedonistic blues, this band will have you reaching for your dancing shoes one minute and a double scotch the next. Two sets of music from 5pm.
