LITTLE TOUR WITH MICHAEL HURLEY

After his first ever visit to Australia a few years ago 76 yr old legendary folk singer Michael Hurley has been hankering to come back. “I didn’t get to see Tasmania!” he grizzles sometimes. And so it happens this March, we’re teeming up again for a drive down the east coast. Also thought it would be a good cultural experience for him to see Gympie too so we start up there.

Russian House is not used to being a venue, this is all an elaborate excuse to look inside the building. See you there!

 

 

WOMBARRA BOWLS CLUB WITH BIG THIEF

This year I’m making a concerted effort to just chill a bit from playing shows to write some more. But couldn’t resist the opportunity to play with this band called Big Thief. At my Sydney Christmas show last year my special guest Julia Jacklin chose to sing a cover by them. The song is called Paul and it’s so good. Anyway, this show will be intimate and it’s at the Wombarra Bowls Club just south of Sydney. You can get a train down. I’ve seen a few great shows there over the years, plus one of my best mates had his wedding breakfast on the green. But I’ve heard it’s gonna be torn down soon for new developments so this is rumoured to be the last show ever there.

As for me, I’ll doing in band mode of some description. More details to come. And I’d say it’ll be my only show on Australian soil until xmas again. Hope you can make it. And if you can’t, try and get to another Big Thief show while they’re in Australia.

LOS ANGELES

I have a sneaky little show in LA this weekend before I fly home to Australia. It’s at the Hotel Cafe and starting at 7pm on the dot. It’s one of those venues where you only get 45mins before they clear the room for the next band. For me these days that’s about 3 songs. So if you do wanna come along and are bummed by the short set I’m sure we could all go find a parking lot or something nearby and I could continue the show there.
