Happy New Year!

It's been a whirlwind start to 2018, with the continuing Fred Smith 'Great' album launch gigs rolling out, preparation for The John Flanagan Trio album launch for our debut album 'Honest Man' and writing and recording the Paper Mouse album.

I was all set to make a pretty exciting announcement to my loyalest music supporters when a baggage handler at Melbourne airport made life a bit tough this week by breaking the neck of my beautiful handmade Sase bass and taking the wind out of my sails. You can read more here if you have the stomach for it. :(

My poor decapitated Sebastian! :(

But life goes on and so does the autumn festival season. So I'm going to pick myself up and use music to heal myself while Neville Whitehead fixes my bass. :)

You can see me with a range of artists (Fred Smith, John Flanagan, Scott Cook/Corin Raymond, Miriam Lieberman) and even the occasional solo appearance at Nannup Music Festival (WA), Yackandandah Folk Festival(VIC), and The National Folk Festival (ACT) and a bunch of other dates in between.

Hugs appreciated!

Heading into the studio AT LAST!

After a few years of retreating from making fully original recordings and concentrating on my role as an accompanist I'm finally heading into the studio to record my own songs again. I have plans for not just one but THREE separate projects, but first to capture the elusive improvised delicasy of Paper Mouse.

I'm so excited! I've been saving up songs for so long! Watch this space for more news...
