Roving Acts

tall poppies special

Tall Poppies are a larger than life comedy music duo. Performing on stilts in fab flower flavoured costumes, their highly engaging comedy skits, fun music and flower hats swaying to the songs are sure to make a splash at your next event.

Jen Hawley (vocals, ukulele and percussion) and Terry Cole (vocals, mandolin and whistles) will delight you with their wonderful and diverse repertoire of wandering minstrel musical magic … and all connected to the funny bone!


“These performers understand the beauty of a big visual and the joy of improvisation …. the tall poppies act … with or without the instruments demonstrates in a nutshell just what stilt walkers can do … so bring em on!” Cathy Dean, Cathy’s Clowns.

You’ll hear a fun mix of up-beat Jazz and Latin , thigh-slapping Gypsy tunes , Aussie bush and some good ol’ country and all-time favourites …all with a touch of circus.
