Pioneering female electric guitarist Penny Ikinger began her musical journey in Sydney’s Wet Taxis in the 1980s, alongside the late Louis Tillett.

Since then, she’s launched her own solo career and collaborated with an eclectic range of musicians in Australia and overseas.

Penny plays at the MoshPit Bar, Sydney on Saturday, February 24 and Smith’s Alternative, Canberra on Sunday February 25, with her full Melbourne band, Penny Ikinger’s Marbles, to showcase her latest album, “Travels and Travails”, a mesmerising collection covering her enthralling career.

Penny Ikinger’s Marbles are an intense, swirling combination of psychedelic guitars, painting vivid sonic pictures. The Marbles are: Tim McCormack – bass, Jason McGann – drums, Sam Billinghurst-Walsh – guitar, and Julian Held – guitar.
