Linda Bull, one half of the luminous Bull Sisters, presents the songs of the Red Headed Stranger – Stardust: The Songs of Willie Nelson. 

Linda is one of Australia’s most soulful vocalists and interpreter of songs in her own right as well as being a big Willie Nelson fan. Her special guest vocalist, Sime Nugent, travels with an extensive repertoire as a soloist, band leader and band member. 

Channelling Willie and capturing the essence of the songs from the Grammy award-winning 1978 classic Stardust, Linda and Sime will take audiences on a journey through this timeless album including Georgia On My Mind and All Of Me, together with a selection of hand-picked Willie signature songs including Always On My Mind, Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain, Crazy, On the Road Again and many more.  

Backed by The Red Headed Strangers, a superb band lead by Cameron Bruce (MD/keys) and featuring some of Australia’s most in demand musicians including Shane Reilly (guitar/pedal steel), Bill McDonald (bass) and Pete Luscombe (drums), as well as special guest Sime Nugent (guitar) who’ll share vocal duties on the night, this will be a must-see show for every music fan.  

"The reason I love Willie Nelson is simple: when he sings, believe him. I share his love of a good melody and relate to his tales of loneliness and heartbreak but also to his optimism, longevity and no nonsense approach” said Linda Bull.  “I’m really looking forward to singing the songs I’ve always loved with Sime Nugent and a band who have been a part of my musical family for so long."
