Get set for a night of great blues music, comedy and our own mini “White Night” after the show.
The Ballad of Backbone Joe kicks off festivities in the hall with their hysterical comedy murder mystery mashed up with foot stomping rattling bones blues.
After the show, we’re having our own mini “White Night” in Birregurra. Grab yourself a vino from the bar and head outside to witness one of Craig Walsh’s amazing light projections illuminating Birregurra. And for the young at heart, enjoy some night time jump rope with Ainsley Macauley’s interactive installation, Jump Light.

ABOUT BALLAD OF BACKBONE JOE
Undefeated bare-knuckle boxer Backbone Joe has a right hook “as quick as a spun tea-bag” but repeated blows to the head have left him a bit slow to process little details. Like, did he really kill his wife by throwing her off a bridge?
Abattoir owner and fight promoter Messy Dimes Dan is only too happy to fill in the blanks. Can Detective Von Trapp ease poor Joe's troubled mind?
When they are not performing, operating their own lights and triggering primitive visual effects, the actors morph into musicians, pick up drums, guitar and double bass and rattle off foot-stompin' street blues from side of stage.
Bring along a tasty picnic to share with your friends on the long tables...heck bring the whole family and enjoy some good ol' country fun with Rag'n'Bone blues music, absurdist plots and action.
Make sure you don't rush off after the show....the bar will stay open until 10pm!
AND…… head to the pub on Saturday night to see The Suitcase Royale for some hip shaking rag’n’bones blues. On from 8pm & it’s FREE!
The performance runs for 60 minutes. Supper will be served after the show. Bar will close at 10pm.
