The Whitlams set to unveil new music at Northern Rivers show

MUSICIAN Tim Freedman will bring one of his rare solo tours to the Northern Rivers in November.

The tour will launch The Whitlams’ new single, Ballad of Bertie Kidd.

The song is a six-minute crime caper that describes a little-known escapade in the long career of one of Australia’s most notorious criminals.
