The Whitlams Black Stump Duo

Tim Freedman and Ollie Thorpe’s acclaimed piano and pedal steel duo is the perfect vehicle to strip back Whitlams repertoire and deliver classics like “No Aphrodisiac” and “Blow Up the Pokies” with poignant atmospherics.

This intimate show will also serve to present new material, as the pair play songs from the debut album of Freedman’s new Americana group – The Whitlams Black Stump. Check out the 13 track long player, “Kookaburra” from March 8.

The Whitlams Black Stump’s recent singles, “The Day John Sattler Broke His Jaw” and “No Aphrodisiac (Black Stump)”, which Countrytown called “a three-minute banjo-fied instant classic” have been staples on Australian Country radio over the past year. The album, two years in the making, was produced by multiple Golden Guitar winner Matt Fell.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
