The Table Hill Recordings Continue

I have just listened to and uploaded my recording of Table Hill (that's Adrian Kosky and me) from last Thursday night when we performed for the folks at the Radio Springs Hotel & Pub in Lyonville, Victoria, Australia.  I'm enjoying hearing our combo of strumstick and baritone mountain dulcimer in this tune, "Farther Along." This recording is of a live-performance, the first for this unplanned, unrehearsed, arrangement and performance,....and this tune will probably never be played the same by us again.....we tend to like to play like that.

Rainy Days Are Good for Neighbours

Today I'm enjoying online episodes of the Australian day-time drama, "Neighbours."  I have gotten hooked on the irresistable characters and the details of their lives.  I like the way they dress, too.  :)  Here's a sample segment of an episode for you.

Australian Songwriters Association Weekend Residential Workshop at Tasma House

Today was the first full day of the song writing workshop that is being conducted at Tasma House Music and Arts Retreat by the Australian Songwriters Association......and it is a beautiful thing to see AND HEAR!  I am happy to be taking pictures of the process of teaching and learning as it is done down under.  Here's a sample picture.  I'm hoping to have more to blog up tomorrow.  There's a concert!

Musical Moments at the Radio Springs Hotel in Lyonville

Although I'm not scheduled to play music at the Radio Springs Hotel & Pub in Lyonville this weekend, my mind is on the musical moments I have shared there.  Here are two clips that I just uploaded to youtube.  Liz Frencham (double bass), Myles White (guitar), and Pete Fidler (dobro) are performing/jamming.
