So, back after weekend number three of the 6 week(end) tour with Andy Irvine. Up til now we have been focused on three festivals – Woodford, Cygnet and Illawarra – with Andy taking in a couple solo shows in between.
It really is a marvel that these events happen as smoothly as they do for the sheer size of the logistics involved in running and managing the catalogue of artists, venues, volunteers and stallholders. It’s a Herculean feat and hats off to those brave individuals who come together to pull it off.
It feels like we’re really hitting a stride in this last batch of gigs and i’m genuinely excited for how the sound will further develop over the next 3 weekends. We have gigs in and around Sydney this weekend, Newstead festival the week following and to wrap the tour up a handful of shows in and around Melbourne.
The official launch of the album “Precious Heroes” at the Spotted Mallard will definitely be a highlight as Kate Burke and Ruth Hazleton will be joining us – what a thrill!
More soon, lots of news but I’m seizing the moments where I can….
