'Mandy Connell is the latest in a long and distinguished line of talented female musicians to grace the musical scene in Australia. A fine singer and songwriter in her own right, she also has the knack of taking other peoples' songs, and by virtue of her original and unique interpretations making them her own, the mark of a truly gifted performer.'..- Eric Bogle.
Winner of the Maldon Minstrel Award 2006, the Declan Affley Award 2005, nominee at Port Fairy Songs of Peace and Tolerance in 2006. Mandy is the Creator and Host of web series An Otherwise Quiet Room, and has released 2 of her own albums - Tall Tales and Northcote Sessions: and two with Folk Revival group Stray Hens. With another album on the way and a handful of new songs from her home in Central Victoria, Connell is accomplished and stunning in her live show.
