Luke R Davies & The Recycled String Band win the 2013 National Film & Sound Archive Folk Recording Award for their album not a note wasted
Michael Leobenstien CEO of the National film & Sound Archive of Australia said that the CD using an engaging mix of music styles was a worthy winner of the award. Using recycled instruments the band has produced a strikingly innovative CD he said.
Luke R Davies leads a remarkable ensemble, the Recycled String Band, which entertains, educates and enraptures audiences with their music and inventive instruments. Whether on stage or in workshops their professional approach to performance is a delight to festival patrons and organizers. Excellent rapport with an audience, enlivened by humour and musicianship of a high order, makes the Recycled String Band popular and welcome at festivals such as the Mount Beauty Music Festival.
