Tim Freedman and Ollie Thorpe in The Black Stump Duo
Tim Freedman and Ollie Thorpe: The Black Stump Duio
Tim Freedman strips back his Whitlam's repertoire and delivers classics like ‘No Aphrodisiac' and ‘You Sound Like Louis Burdett' from the piano, with help from acclaimed pedal steel and guitarist Ollie Thorpe, in what they call The Black Stump Duo.
They have toured together nationally in the Whitlams' alt-country offshoot, Whitlams Black Stump, and their singles ‘The Day John Sattler Broke His Jaw' and ‘Blow Up the Pokies' have been staples on Australian Country radio over the past year. The new single due February 2023 is Freedman's bushranger classic ‘Kate Kelly' performed in a duet with Felicity Urquhart.
