Neil Murray at Hats Courthouse,
Sunday Aug 29th 3pm.
Maverick song man Neil Murray is touring nationally in 2021. He is a founding member of the pioneering Warumpi Band, which penetrated mainstream Australia with the iconic anthems My Island Home and Blackfella Whitefella, he is now a respected singer/songwriter, with a string of remarkable albums, the most recent being Blood & Longing and Tjungu (all in one, joined together) with Sammy Butcher.
His latest single, Keep Rolling On, celebrates the continuance of First Nations people and their culture in Australia and is an apt title for the resumption of his touring after being interrupted by the Covid pandemic.
Neil Murray’s accolades include the 2017 Port Fairy Folk Festival Artist of the year, the 1995 APRA song of the year award for My Island Home. The latter plus Jailanguru Pakarnu ( Out from Jail- a 1983 co-write with Sammy Butcher in the Luritja language) have been selected into the National Film and Television Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia Series.
Artists such as Mary Black, Jimmy Little, Missy Higgins, Powderfinger and Liz Stringer have recorded his songs. Always engaging live, Neil Murray’s work has contributed substantially to Australia’s contemporary music heritage.

Time to tempt fate and get OUT AND ABOUT
with Mick Thomas’ Roving Commission
City’s Calling Me is the brand new album from Mick Thomas’ Roving Commission and nothing is going to stop them getting around the country to play to people who have been hanging out for fine live music all year. Sure the Bluesfest cancellation was a kick in the guts but it only served to make the honest troubadours of this world more resolute there is work to be done and shows to be played.
Squeezebox Wally – check, Brooke Rusty Russell – check, Franz on bass? Folley on the tubs? Check! Check! It’s the full line-up of the Roving Commission and they are raring to go. Time to get Out and About folks!
Songs and stories with Bromham and Luke Marshall
We Bromhams have been working hard on some new songs which all follow the narrative of one true story which is very dear to us. Before we record these new tunes we wanted to put on a special show to tell you the story and play you the songs. And what better place to put on such a show then the beloved Wheaty.
To add to the enticement and intrigue we have asked our good friend Luke Marshall to come and share some songs and stories of his own. Luke is an incredibly talented folk-song writer and has made a name for himself nationally and internationally by traveling and sharing stories.
We can’t wait.
