Roll up to historic Mount Barker Station for 'Railroad Blues', a community music event proudly presented by SteamRanger Heritage Railway and supported by the Mount Barker District Council.
Featuring live blues music performed by award winning artists Mick Kidd, Lazy Eye, and The Harmonics, with music both on the plaftform and on the train.
At 10.30am, Mick Kidd will kick the day off right, rocking his own brand of slidin' stompin' acoustic blues on board a heritage 'Redhen' railcar bound for Philcox Hill. If you're keen to catch Mick but don't fancy the early time slot, additional trains will depart at 12:15pm and 2:15 pm.
Back at the station, the funky, swinging rhythms of The Harmonics will transport you from the platform to the streets and juke joints of America's Deep South, in two sets starting at 11:20am and 12:15pm respectively.
Multi-award winning local trio Lazy Eye will round out the day with 90 minutes of soul-drenched blues from 1.25pm; think B.B. King sharing a scotch with Booker T at the crossroads after midnight.
The fantastic team from Tacocat will be selling delicious tacos all day, and the SteamRanger canteen will have espresso coffee, home-style cakes and other light refreshments.
GENERAL ENTRY: Adults $10, Concession $8, Children 16 and under FREE.
TRAIN RIDES: Adults $10, Children 4-16yrs $5, Under 4yrs FREE.
Doors open at 9:45am. Trains will depart at 10:30am, 12:15pm and 2:15pm. Music on the platform commences 11:20am.
