Episode Summary

EDIT
Rainy Night Blues
AIRED:
Chris has finally pulled through and got the first Mount Thomas Blues Festival up and running. There are thousands of tourists in town but the predictions are for heavy rain. The festival may be ruined and Chris has been pushing her hardest for months to get this thing going. Jo is not excited at the prospect of Blues, but Jonesy and Tess certainly are. Among the singers are legends Charlie Bell and Butch Jordan who was Tess's favourite singer as a child. Jo is even more angry when Ben injures himself at basketball and she must take over his shift, missing out on her weekend off.
Farmer Roy Haiseman begins firing at a trespasser whom Jonesy soon discovers is Butch Jordan himself. One of only two roads to the festival goes through Roy's property and Roy is against the idea. Or, as Tom puts it, Roy is against the idea that Chris beat him in the council election. At the same time, festival organiser Erin William's hit Roy's mare which escaped after Butch left the gate open. Luckily, the three reach a compromise to avoid charges but Roy is still against the festival, which is begin held at Erin's mothers property. At the station, Butch confesses he is dead broke and this festival is a chance for him to make a come-back. Tess is awestruck to meet her idol and he agrees to sing her favourite song "Rainy Night Blues" for her at the festival.
Unfortunately, the festival looks grim after storm clouds gather, council has a problem with the lack of toilet facilities and lead singer Charlie Bell is injured and can't make it. To add to this someone stole $3000 from Erin's cashbox.moreless
