Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Festival

One week until the Mitchell Creek Rock and Blues Festival! In a few days I will be heading South to the Sunshine Coast for one of the regions biggest Rock and Blues Festivals, with artists such as the Tommyhawks, Backsliders, Caravana Sun, Evol Walks and Genevieve Chadwick. The Festival runs over 3 days with 150+ acts, and is set in the valley surrounds of a natural mountainous amphitheatre featuring bunya pines, cedar trees, and the big, big starry sky. This is my first Festival since returning to Australia, and there is plenty of new stories and tunes to share.

Home in Australia

Back in Australia and resting up before the next travels, keeping quiet and writing some new songs to preview at the end of the month. I am happily in debt to all of the people who made these travels possible, and who supported me in all of my moments of doubt, sadness, excitement, fatigue and joy. Thank you, I miss you, see you again soon.

I have just finished off my travel diary. Check it out if you have the time! The link is above.
