Australian music legends the Backsliders are coming to Lennox Head for the first time, to play at the Lennox Head Cultural Centre on Saturday 26 June 2021.

Backsliders are an award-winning Australian band with a 30 year history of recording and touring the music festival circuit. The band will showcase their latest album Bonecrunch.

The Lennox Head performance will feature the legendary Rob Hirst on drums and Australian blues guitarist and vocalist Dom Turner, together with young harmonica great Joe Glover, supported by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Karl S Williams.

‘We are excited to attract the Backsliders to Lennox Head, performing at Ballina Shire Council’s premier live entertainment venue, the Lennox Head Cultural Centre,’ said Roberta O’Brien, Coordinator Community Facilities for Ballina Shire Council.

‘This band is regarded as one of Australia’s greatest blues bands, they’ve been working together for many years and are well respected artists in their own right.

‘Thanks to Lennox Sessions and Tintenbar Up Front for bringing the Backsliders to the Northern Rivers,’ said Ms O’Brien.

‘If you are looking for a great night of live music and performance, enjoy blues or just wish to pay homage to the likes of Rob Hirst, founding member of Midnight Oil, who stands as one of the world’s great drummers, this show ticks all the boxes.

You can even use your Service NSW Dine & Discover vouchers to purchase tickets to this event,’ Ms O’Brien added.
