It’s almost three years since the Tracy McNeil Band last played Mullumbimby, but those who caught her set @ MMF on the Rhythms Stage in 2011 remember a stunning performance!

She is returning to Mullumbimby this Saturday to showcase her superb new album Nobody Ever Leaves.

Tracy’s voice is strong and pure, and her latest songs have a gritty road-worn pop sensibility, not previously evident in her writing. She has surrounded herself with a complementary band of musicians, The Good Life, that magnify her strengths.

Canadian-born Tracy McNeil arrived in Melbourne in 2008 and teamed up with Jordie Lane as Fireside Bellows (alt. country/folk duo), releasing their only album No Time To Die to rave reviews across the country.

tracy-mcneil-After they went their separate ways to pursue solo careers, Tracy put together a band of sympathetic musicians and recorded Fire From Burning, which cemented her reputation as a respected and formidable force on the alt. country circuit. She then went on to support international artists such as Old Crow Medicine Show, Eilen Jewell, Mary Gauthier and Tony Joe White among others.

Supported by Mr Cassidy, the Tracy McNeil Band will be at the Courthouse Hotel, Mullumbimby on Saturday August 23 from 7.30pm
