“Ain’t you heard there’s a storm coming?”
A clock, a town, a sunrise on an old radio and the wind. The wind, who’s dead set on sticking someone in the ground by sunset.
Down in the dust bowl the air’s so thick folk just can’t see what’s coming their way anymore, all ’cept Johnnie, little Johnnie Wylo…
Struggle, survival and live music brewed up into a foot stomping, bath blasting, bone shaking hoedown.
A wild and darkly funny musical tale about hope and daring to have it in the land of the downtrodden.
The tour of Five Feet in Front is produced by Jake Orr for Making Room.
