Return to Australia with The Melbourne Folk Club and National Folk Festival

I’ll be returning to Australia briefly in April to play one special Melbourne show at the launch of The Melbourne Folk Club on Wednesday April 23rd. It is a brand new weekly event running at the Bella Union in Carlton, and I will be launching it with the lovely Clare Reynolds singing with me, plus a secret international guest. You can see what it’s all about at www.themelbournefolkclub.com and buy tickets there.

Clare and I will also be returning to the National Folk Festival for the second year in a row, playing 5 shows over the weekend. The line up includes other legends like Old Man Luedecke, Tift Merritt, Lindi Ortega and The Mae Trio. All the info for that at www.folkfestival.org.au

FESTIVAL OF SMALL HALLS w/ Rose Cousins in November/December

I will head on the road with the amazing Rose Cousins for the Festival of Small Halls, which kicks off just after Mullumbimby Music Festival.

This tour goes through small regional towns in Queensland, places that have populations of 300-400 in many cases. You can check it all out at http://festivalofsmallhalls.com/

Here is a video of Rose & I singing the Guy Clark classic ‘LA Freeway’ earlier this year.
