Ballad of the Skeletons

You know the old joke about the skeleton not going to a party because he had no body to go with? I will give you a moment to have someone explain the joke to you. Well, the skeleton has found someone. Say a warm hello to Jordan Clay & the Skeleton Band.

They have also found Didirri, and a tour is taking place this month. Wherever he has travelled, Jordan has been accompanied by a guitar, producing songs with an outpouring of emotion.

Didirri’s music has been described as “roots based heavily in hillbilly”, though they seem just as happy with the alternative folk tag. The Loft, Warrnambool – January 13; Bella Blue, Bendigo – January 14; and Workers Club, Geelong – January 15.
