‘Jimmy’s got a lot of stories to tell, and he tells them his own way – with strong words and an steady hand’
To kick off our weekend of frank frivolities (festival of the frank, we like to call it) the Gilbert Street Hotel is hosting a special show on Thursday 31 May.
Singer, songwriter and all-round-rogue Jimmy Dowling is travelling from Murwillumbah in NSW to be with us for a song or two at the Wheaty and we thought it would be a lost opportunity if he didn’t have a chance to play a full set of his own material.
Come and join us at the Gilbert Street Hotel from 7pm on 31 May to hear a set from Jimmy.
Jimmy has gained a reputation as an insighful and forthright songwriter who has that rare gift of being able to sing about every-day moments with a sharp wit and beauty that is infectious. His album Dead Man’s Lullaby has been on high rotation in the Stobie Studio of late and we really encourage you to come down for a listen.
Jimmy’s song from ‘Banished Now From My Native Shore’ features in this clip we made a while back….
