Tomorrow, Saturday, May 7 sees Frank Bell launch his debut single White Horse at Billyroy’s BluesBar. It’s a swampy, gutsy dirty blues number with a contrasting acoustic folk number, Riverside, on the B-side. Both are Frank Bell originals. The ubiquitous Bill Barber produced both tracks and contributed to the percussion on White Horse.
It all kicks off at 7.30pm beneath the Goldmines Hotel. We can expect a guest or two joining Bell on stage at different points in the evening.
Claude Hay, self-proclaimed “hillbilly disco aficionado” returns to Bendigo next week promoting his new single Love No More. It’s taken from his fourth album due later this year.
He’s a busy man, Hay, with six European tours under his belt since his last full-length release in 2012. And get this: he makes his own custom guitars for each new release. Accompanying Love No More is “Jerri” – built from a 10 litre jerry can. A true original.
Claude Hay plays the Golden Vine next Thursday, May, 12.
