The night will feature the best in blues, flamenco, classical, rock, funk , folk and more and aims to celebrate some of the lesser know musical gems Adelaide has to offer.
The regular Friday nights will kick off this Friday with “Ban Dance” featuring country, folk and rock from Max Savage and the False Idols, The Bakers Digest and Carla Lippis and the Martial Hearts (above). Timber and Steel readers should also check out Banjo Jackson and Golonka!
