The Countdown

The countdown is on – only a few days to go before we head overseas for a couple of months. Ios, Greece is the first destination where we’ll catch up with old friends over a few weeks and enjoy the sun before heading to France and Denmark to play the blues at festivals and blues joints.

If you’re in the market for a cigar box guitar, please check out my products

page. I’ve also got new t-shirts for sale. Great design, black or white and all sizes.

Gympie Muster

I’m just back from the Gympie Muster where

the weather was amazing. No rain! No mud!

There’s always a special vibe at the Muster and there was some great jamming. Thanks to everyone who dropped by the stall.

I caught some great acts including Blue Shaddy, Bill Chambers, Colin Hay, 8 Ball Aitken, Graveyard Train, Dallas Frasca and The Pigs.

8 Ball Aitken dropped by and brought in his biscuit tin guitar. Here’s a clip of 8 Ball Aitken and I jammin’ on ‘Little Red Rooster’.
