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

London, Celtic Connections, Canada with OML and Folk Alliance #international

2014 has kicked off with an incredible run of international travel and amazing shows. It all began at Woodford Folk Festival in Queensland, Australia where the band and I played some cracking shows in the blistering heat before seeing in the new year at one of the worlds best festivals.

I then had a few weeks off before traveling back to LA to drop some gear off, just in time to go to the airport and fly to London. We sold out my first ever London show at the Green Note, and then went to Glasgow for Celtic Connections where I played in front of 2000 people supporting Mary Chapin Carpenter. Celtic Connections brings in amazing bands from all over the world, and I got to spend a few days with new friends The Stray Birds, and even got up for a song at their house concert in Edinburgh. See the video HERE

After a few days in New York, I arrived in Halifax to begin another tour with Old Man Luedecke, this time in the heart of the Canadian winter after our very warm summer tour of Australia in October/November. We play 25 dates around the country, and in between I jump to Folk Alliance International for a wild ride of 14 shows in 3 days with lots of friends, including The Stray Birds and Liz Stringer from back in Melbourne.

Here is a photo that captures some of the madness of the last few months!

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/
and find tour dates at by clicking on SHOWS above.

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