Coochie Island Blues and Roots – Australia Day long weekend Sunday session

I’m really excited to announce the Coochie Island Blues and Roots Sunday session, Australia Day long weekend 2015. Coochiemudlo Island is lies in Moreton Bay, between Brisbane and the Gold Coast and, although only 5 square kilometres in size, boasts more than four kilometres of beautiful, safe beaches.



Great beaches for the kids

On Sunday, 25 January 2015, talented musicians will converge on the island at the Community Hall and put on a Sunday session that will, I’m sure, be remembered for a long time to come.

Woodford Folk Festival – 27 Dec – 1 Jan

It’s that time of year again…Woodford Folk Festival, a definite must-do on the festival circuit. I’m back again with my cigar box guitars, cigar box basses and cigar box one-string diddley bows so come along and have a play.


I think I’ll plug this guitar in 🙂
