Taite Prize finalists Hopetoun Brown are hula-hooping with joy after being added to the already bulging Splore line-up.
You may recognise Tim Stewart and Nick Atkinson as the horn-playing founding members of Supergroove, but lately they've been busy stomping and honking with their new act Hopetoun Brown.
This unique duo have shared the stage with Marlon Williams, The Violent Femmes and Weird Together, amongst others. They've recorded hits with Tami Neilson and toured the far ends of these shaky isles. Trombones, bass clarinets, trumpets and saxophones are swaped and dropped as Stewart's powerful tonsils and heavy stomping shudder halls up and down the nation! At Splore our boys will be joined by the country's punchiest trumpet player Finn Scholes, who some will know as band leader of Carnivorous Plant Society. Expect Tubas!
