Big Name, No Blankets celebrates the phenomenal journey and impact of Sammy Tjapanangka Butcher, one of the founding members of Australian music icons Warumpi Band in an epic rock 'n' roll theatre show. You're invited into the world of these central desert legends, follow as the band navigates divides between bush and city, white and black, fame and family. Stomp your feet, clap your hands and get swept away by this big-hearted story.
