A busy week.
JP Shilo and I played at The Post Office Hotel last Sunday, thanks to all who came and wandered off home with a snow dome and CD.
Nice to meet young New Zealanders Aldous Harding and Marlon Williams at The Melbourne Folk Club on Wednesday night. Their traditional, medieval tale of a boy married at 14, a father at 15 and laying in his grave at 16 was truly stunning, so beautifully sung.
The songs of the Wounded Bird will soon be coming to rest but not before a few more shows and a quick trip to SYDNEY next Friday.
Lindi Ortega's album TIN STAR was given to me by Michael and Sandra who I met earlier in the year. They had me over to DJ at their place as well as performing a surprise acoustic house concert for their friend Ursula. TIN STAR has been on high rotation since. The Toff is her own sideshow as she tours the country with Justin Townes Earle so l look forward to seeing her in a more intimate setting.
Thanks again to 3RRR for having the WBIRD band perform live last month and album of the week.
