Song for Weekend: Jim Reeves classic He'll Have to Go
An excellent venue for celebration or commiseration:
Don't sit at home this Saturday night (October 9) worrying about what might be or what might have been. Come on down to the Bald Faced Stag (on the corner of Parramatta and Balmain Rds - just one block on the city side of Norton St, Leichhardt) for a night of pure country honky tonk with the marvellous Murray Hillbillies and special guests, including Mark Lucas. If all's well with our preferred society we'll get a rousing version of He's In The Jailhouse Now along with four hours of the songs of Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell, Wayne Hancock, Slim Dusty, Jimmie Rodgers, Webb Pierce and more!!!
Guaranteed to touch the centre of your country-music soul - starting at 9 pm and rollicking all the way through to 1 am on Sunday morning.
This venue is being touted as a possible country music venue if the numbers are encouraging and that's something we need given the recent decline in venues for country/hillbilly/bluegrass music. Please pass this message along and hope to see you there.
The Murray Hillbillies line-up:
MURRAY HILL - Vocals and rhythm guitar
ROD COE - Double bass, backing vocals
GARY BROWN - Slide guitar, Dobro, steel guitar
LES SCOTT - Lead guitar and backing vocals
ROBBIE SOUTER - Drums
