Mama Red & The Dark Blues
Friday 28 June 7.00pm
Fresh from Denmark Festival of Voice and armed with a few new stories to share!
Mama Red & the Dark Blues are bringing you not only some of their new tunes, but throwing in the ring some of their favourite covers. So make sure you’re strapped into your seats because these ones are pure hard hitting harmony.
If you’re in for a heapin’ helpin’ of country influenced heartstring tuggers you’ve come to the right place. Mama Red will be calling out to the sister circle with new tales of darkness and destiny. The tunes speak of fear and fierceness, redemption and rebirth and painful, radical truth.
Beware – Mama Red is coming at you with raw emotion on her sleeve this night, and she will lay bare her history for your voyeuristic listening pleasure.
We’re stripping it back to feature heavy vocal harmonies… if the Dixie Chicks and Nick Cave had a love child, she would almost certainly be a Dark Blue. Harry Deluxe, Melanie Bainbridge & Therese Cruise are backed by the incredible Dark Blues Band: Gregory Brenton on drums, Almore James on guitar, John Wilson on bass and joined once again by Sanshi with some dark and dangerous didge. When this demonic posse get to wailing, better call the sheriff, because all hell is breaking loose.
