Deebee Bishop

What makes the clean-cut son of a Baptist minister growing up in a typical Australian suburb in the 1970s turn into a larrikin musician?

Answer: The Ramones, the Buzzcocks, Sex Pistols, and The Clash.

Most people DeeBee knew when he was 19 were listening to Toto or Donna Summer’s disco. For DeeBee there was something about the punk sound that made him feel connected. All that angry energy, anything but pure and simple.

Okay, so DeeBee’s Punk-Folk show isn’t PUNK – it’s acoustic guitars, banjo, mandolin, piano, and raunchy vocals.

Punk-Folk is stories about growing up in a sheltered and stifling family where music was forbidden fruit, and tales about all the wonderfully misplaced people DeeBee has met on the road.

Punk-Folk is a comical look at what happens when we break free of a conservative religious upbringing and how music is what feelings sound like.

The support for this show is Mo McMorrow, a whirlwind of creative energy. In song, this energy translates to a nuanced brand of Irish-Americana led by beautiful vocal melodies, and steeped in transatlantic themes of place and ancestry.

Mo McMorrow’s vocals conjure music legends and newcomers alike. There’s the playfulness of Dolly, the quirk and intimacy of Nancy Griffith, the melodramatic, stylish nod to Roy Orbison and vintage crooners. 

Catch these two great performances at the Drill Theatre, Mullumbimby, on Sunday 23 October.

Bar and kiosk open. 3pm matinee doors open 2pm.

Cost $20. Drill Theatre members and concession $15.00.
