The soul of Hillbilly

Lil’ Fi is coming in from the hills to tear the town apart this Friday.
Lil’ Fi is coming in from the hills to tear the town apart this Friday.

Lil' Fi is one of the featured performers in the latest edition of Jimmy Willing's Live in Hillbilly Heaven which will raise the roof of the Gollan Hotel in Lismore this Friday, September 14.

Lil' Fi is a blues diva; the mama of melancholy; a siren of soul; a retro punk visionary.

You may have seen her blowin' them away at festivals and venues all over Australia. Or you may have felt tingles down your spine when she channels Janis Joplin in The Songs of Haight Ashbury Show.

But you ain't really experienced the blues until you've experienced Lil' Fi and her Dirty Rascals. Now's your chance…

Joining Lil Fi' on the Hillbilly bill are Jimmy Willing & Cameron Muir (ex Ragadoll bandmates), The Barker's Vale Brothers (Gareth and Vaughan bring you the tastiest bluegrass licks, the wettest song titles and the driest wit) and the best-dressed man in Lismore, The Rev Kim McLean. With his love of Guthrie and antique farm tractors, the Rev is at the very forefront of Hillbilly culture in these here parts.

So, it's the hottest hoe-down in the country and it's happening this Friday at 8.30pm.

And it's as free as love on a haybale.

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
