Jordan McRobbie

the Mountains' latest live music restaurant and bar is kicking off with a bang on August 17.

Blackheath Bar & Bistro is collaborating with Fusion Boutique to bring a terrific range of touring artists in an open entry format in a relaxed, family friendly venue.

Fusion Boutique is known for presenting unique and talented acts to the area over the last nine years. BB&B offers craft beers, a great range of wine, cocktails, excellent food and entertainment.

Gigs on Govetts free live music sessions start on Saturday, August 17, with touring artist Jordan McRobbie from 7:30pm.

Australian progressive folk/roots artist McRobbie has fast become known for his honest voice and virtuosic ability on the 12- and six-stringed guitars, while laying Middle-Eastern and Celtic infused riffs over electronic beats and Latin percussion.

Over his career he's released two studio-records, toured internationally and taken out multiple song writing and performance awards including the West Australian Blues/Roots Song of the Year for High Tide that garnered him airplay on local and national radio including Triple J.

It has been a mammoth couple of years, playing festivals such as Nannup, Fairbridge, Bridgetown Blues, Peak Festival and over 100 shows a year, including opening for Neil Finn (Crowded House), Angus & Julia Stone, Fat Freddy's Drop, Nahko & Medicine for the People, and touring with Mat McHugh & The Beautiful Girls to name a few.

Currently recording his forthcoming EP (Featuring members of Wolfmother & Dead Letter Circus) McRobbie now has his sights set on touring the record through Australia in 2019, followed by Europe and North America.

McRobbie is at Blackheath Bar & Bistro, 35-41 Govetts Leap Rd, on Saturday, August 17 at 7.30pm. Free entry but bookings are highly recommended - call 4787 5787 or email to reserve a table. Family friendly - minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and supervised.
