It’ll be a jazzy ol’ Blues Tram on Saturday 10 August 2019, when the incredible Liz Frencham returns to the rails for only the second time and ragtime rascals Alawishus Jones & The Outright Lies endeavour to keep their musical mischief to a minimum (if you can believe it).
Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage W Class tram, while being serenaded by two great acts:
2018 Troubadour Foundation Artist of the Year, and perennial festival presence Liz Frencham is stepping back into centre stage with a swag of new songs along with favourites from her Jigzag and Frencham Smith days. Always a luminous and generous presence, Liz possesses that unique ability to hold an audience fondly in the palm of her hand.
Alawishus Jones & The Outright Lies:
Let Alawishus, Wilby & Cleitus take you folks all the way
back to the year o’nineteen and thirty. They’ll likely tell
you stories about the old times and sing
you some authentic rural blues, rag tunes & maybe even some old time spirituals
What can we expect from AJ & the OLs? Old blues; Maybe some pre blues stuff that contains elements essential to the birth of blues like work song, field holler & ragged time; Mostly what you can expect though is 3 guys having a lot of fun; Guitar, drums, washboard, bass, trumpet, harmonica & ukulele; Stories and anecdotes that could have historical significance or might be outright lies!
