The Band

The Bearbrass Asylum Orchestra are a crip-folk trio based in Melbourne, Australia whose members all have disabilities. They consist of Jess Kapuscinski-Evans on vocals, Tim Hackett on guitars and Anthea Skinner on percussion. The band first formed in 2012 and play a combination of cover songs and original tracks which explore all the usual topics: love, sex, death, self-advocacy and of course, ancient British mythology.   

Bearbrass Asylum Orchestra are the house band for Melbourne’s hottest (and only) queer/disabled cabaret night 'Quippings' and regularly perform at festivals and clubs around Australia.
