Outback roads and roadhouses have cast their spell on the alt-country rock band, Rustflower. After their Outback tour in 2008, they are taking the music “further and wider” with a “Big Country” tour – 13 gigs, 18 days, 4000 kms. Playing their own brand of infectious Aussie country rock, Rustflower tell the stories of the characters and land, mixing them with the rhythm of the road. They’re always open to a “guest” vocalist or tambourine player, creating an atmosphere where everyone is part of the night. They’re in the Alice area this week, performing at Ti Tree on Thursday, October 13, and then at the Glen Helen Resort on Friday, supported by Alice muso, Barry Skipsey – under the stars in the venue provided by nature. Rustflower’s Big Country Tour is supported by the Australian Government’s Contemporary Music Touring Program.
