  • Bootenal Family Tavern Cnr Edwards and Bootenal Rd Bootenal, Western Australia 6532 Australia (map)

Another very special gig coming up at the unique Bootenal Family Tavern with the amazing Hussy Hicks and special guest all the way from the Alabama, Kristy Lee.

Since forming Hussy Hicks in 2006, Julz Parker and Leesa Gentz have forged their own, very unique way into the global music scene. Fearlessly independent, the genre defying Hussy Hicks have followed a trail of possibilities, random twists and turns and discovered a musical world all of their own. Their influences are drawn from family record collections of old school blues and country, and from their travels, combining a distinctly Australian roots edge with European gypsy guitar, Arabic rhythms and optimistic social commentaries.

Julz is regarded as one of Australia’s finest guitarists and has traded licks with everyone from street performers to Phil and Tommy Emmanuel, John Jorgenson, Lulo Reinhardt and Joe Robinson.

Leesa is most recognised for her soaring vocals and joyful, endearing stage presence and she has been steadily earning respect as one of the most captivating vocalists in her field.

The Hussies have been welcomed with honorary memberships into blues, folk, country and jazz circles, spreading their good vibes across festival stages and venues throughout Europe, America and Australia, with the single goal of playing music for the absolute joy of it.

That mighty rumble you hear coming out of Alabama is none other than Kristy Lee. Her voice like thunder, rolling in before a sweet southern rain, instantly washes the world away. Kristy Lee’s unique rhythms are absolutely nourishing, clean, pure, and unapologetic. This woman means it when she takes her voice out to play!
By the time Kristy Lee reached 18, she landed her first album nationwide, to be sold exclusively with “Target Stores” across the states. Kristy Lee’s first album gave her an early jump on, what is now, a career.
This Alabama girl can pack a house in any state. Tough luck sticking her in a category, because when it comes to writing songs, she has no limits!
