Since The BordererS were last in Glen Innes, they’ve had sensational years at home and abroad.

Australia’s favourite Scottish/Irish/Aussie band has played for Prime Minister Julia Gillard, been signed to a Los Angeles record company and went home from the South Australian Fowler’s Live Music Awards with two gongs – Most Popular SA Release for their Tales of Love and Loss album, and Most Popular SA Band/Artist.

They also just performed in Dublin with Van Morrison’s musicians, met up with Hollywood Directors in LA in regards to their new musical based on the life of Les Darcy, and worked with Bono & Ed Sheeran’s producers on some new tracks.

Hugely popular in Europe, they returned to appear at several festivals where organisers have realised the importance of having this all-singing, all-playing, all-dancing band on the bill. Good times are guaranteed at every BordererS performance.

On Bastille Day, The BordererS played to huge crowds at the Mirande Festival in Southern France – Europe’s largest country music festival.

As parents themselves, Jim and Alex always strive to present family-friendly shows where any age group feels comfortable being in the room. Mind you, their onstage energy can leave audiences exhausted and feeling quite breathless!

Port Fairy Folk Festival director Jamie McKew is a big fan, saying: “You must be dead if you’re not seen dancing at a BordererS gig!”. So expect the unexpected at a BordererS gig!

Jim & Alex’s combined forces provide thrilling performances of great energy and appeal. One moment you’ll be dancing, the next you’ll have a little tear in your eye and then finally you’ll be clapping wildly and laughing your head off with their antics & stories. All age groups love this band and everyone feels involved.
