Last night, we heard from:

Mutawintji’s deeply treasured Malyangaapa / Barkindji park ranger, whose soulful voice shares honest and poignant ballads straight from the heart.
????Jimmybay “Psychedelic Story Man”
Growing up between rural and remote Queensland and South Australia Jimmybay has spent much of his musical life travelling across the country, collecting songs and stories in far out places and sharing them wherever he goes.
????Charlotte Le Lievre “Guitar Slingin’ Sister”
Born in Newcastle, now based between Melbourne (Naarm) and the Far Western NSW mining town of Broken Hill. Charlotte Le Lievre is a captivating storyteller, drawing on historical events and profound personal experiences to weave narratives about life out West.
????Aimee Volkofsky “Desert Siren”
Born and raised in the arid lands of far western NSW she sings about dust, ghost stories, the harsh realities of life in the bush, and the ancient beauty of the Australian landscape.
????My Dearest Dear “Desert Sweethearts”
Country/folk duo living and singing in Far West NSW on Wilyakali and Barkindji land. Telling stories of old amongst landscapes that hold their harmonies, the pair bring a world almost forgotten to a new light.
????Mick Coates “The Crooning Cowboy”
From the heart of Central Victoria, Mick Coates is known for his golden tonsils. Bringing ballads and cowboy songs that share the truth or the odd skeleton. Plus a few heartbreakers for light relief.
This tour was made possible with support from West Darling Arts, Regional Arts Fund and Bush Witch Productions.
