Derek Guille (former ABC presenter) said “New Melbourne folk outfit Saffron Avenue does much more than pay homage to the great songs from the folk revival of the sixties and seventies.

Mandy Connell has been building a well deserved reputation for her original songs, which spring from her deep love of the folk tradition, both here and in the UK. She has put together a band of energetic musicians who share her passion for good music and a good time”
