The triceps ain’t what they used to be but the funny bone has only gotten sharper… The Tuck Shop Ladies are an amalgamation of Australian folk music royalty, featuring Sam Lohs (Fruit) and Rosie Burgess (Rosie Burgess Trio). Strapping on a pair of ukuleles, the pair pull back the curtain to share an intimate selection of the riotous, ridiculous songs that were birthed in the back of a tour van, to amuse only themselves.
Their live show is an insight into the relationship of touring musicians, and the result of what happens when everyday life is a Broadway musical. The Tuck Shop Ladies invite you into their hilarious world and leave you wanting to run away with the band.
“I love comedy-music duos, and Tuck Shop Ladies are my new favourites!”
Miss Chatelaine, Joy FM
“Strap yourself in for a wild ride – these women know how to hold a crowd. The Tuck Shop Ladies performance was the gig that everyone talked about at Happy Wanderer. If you missed it, you missed out!”
Programming Director, Happy Wanderer Festival
“You get a lot more than your average school lunch from these Tuck Shop Ladies… their songs are a smorgasbord of sly observation, toe tapping tunes and hilarious lyrics all delivered with sharp wit and a deadly accurate pair of ukuleles.”
