Texas, 25 October 2023

Texas Memorial Hall, QLD, Bigambul Country

Texas Memorial Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Bigambul People.

The Texas Memorial Hall was built in 1958. Soon after opening, the stage collapsed during a meeting of local tobacco growers. The origin of the town’s name is generally regarded as a reference to a territorial dispute. The land in the area was first settled by the McDougall brothers, who found squatters there on returning from the goldfields. Once their legal right to the land was recognised, they named their property in honour of the rather more famous dispute between the United States and Mexico over territory in Texas, USA. 

Festival of Small Halls returns to Texas on Wednesday, 25 October 2023 with Monique Clare and Shane Pendergast.

Opening the show will be local act Girl Friday and the Silverbacks!

The trio Girl Friday and the Silverbacks was born out of a mutual enjoyment of playing music. Greg, Adam and Annabel were all keen for an opportunity to simply enjoy doing something creative, and welcomed a break from their busy working lives in the agricultural industry. Collectively, they have experienced challenges with droughts, floods and Covid border closures. Girl Friday and the Silverbacks has created a avenue for musical expression, providing a diversion from the everyday stresses and contributes to the sense of community through local performances, playing together and original compositions relevant to local life.
