John Flanagan will bring 70s Americana sounds to the Aussie bush when his small hall tour stops by Bellbrae Hall on Friday night.
Flanagan’s honest lyricism and timeless melodies have made him incredibly popular with Australian country and roots fans.
For the small hall tour, he will perform alongside festival favourite Liz Frencham and bluegrass virtuoso Dan Watkins, offering warm vocal harmonies and impressive acoustic arrangements. THE BUSH With a new album, There’s Another Way To Where You’re Going, released just this month, Flanagan said his music holds a strong message.
“It ties together stories of the outsiders – the lonely, the heartbroken and those who aren’t afraid to step aside from the mainstream,” he said.
“Moments of sadness intertwine with the uplifting to create an overarching message of acceptance and change.”
Flanagan will be joined by emerging Melbourne alt-country talent Sal Kimber and her band The Rollin’
Kimber’s unique style has captured a strong following and garnered awards including the APRA Darebin Songwriting Award in 2007, the Victorian Female Vocalist of the Year Award at the Victorian and National Country Music Awards in 2010, and the Apra Song of the Year at the Victoria and National Country Music Awards in 2012.
She has also performed in support of Kasey Chambers and Tim Rogers and been a guest on SBS TV’s Rockwiz.
John Flanagan and Sal Kimber and the Rollin’ Wheel are performing at Bellbrae Hall, 90 School Road, Bellbrae on Friday February 19 from 7pm.
Tickets are $25 for general admission, $10 for kids, purchase at trybooking.com/JXIY.
