Maes (sisters Maggie and Elsie Rigby) grew up the children of folk musicians,
immersed in folk festivals, choir rehearsals and campfire sessions. This
formative experience helped to shape two of Australian folk music’s most
respected songwriters, singers and instrumentalists.
sisters have been touring the world for the past six years, playing some of the
world’s most prestigious roots music festivals, including the Telluride
Bluegrass Festival in the USA, Edmonton Folk Festival in Canada and the Woodford
Folk Festival and WOMADelaide in Australia.
Their 2019 self-titled release, ‘The Maes’ won Best Folk/Roots Album of
the Year at the Music Victoria Awards; their second consecutive win in this
category after their Nashville-produced release, ‘Take Care Take Cover’ won the
title in 2017. Alongside these accolades, their song ‘Driving Ali Through Mining Towns’ was shortlisted
for the 2019 Vanda & Young Songwriting Award.
