Woodford Folk Festival

I'll be at the Woodford Folk Festival in Australia between Christmas and New Year's – here are a couple of cigar box guitars I've built over the last few weeks…

'A Message To You' with Cohiba Cuban cigar box and vintage tiesco pickup

'Stray Cat Blues'

Byron Bay Bluesfest

I've just found out that I'll be at the Byron Bay Bluesfest in 2013. I'm really looking forward to it. The last two years have been amazing and the line-up next year is exceptional. Plus, I always enjoy our late night jams in the cigar box guitar stall.

Here's a link to a review from last year to give you a taste of what to expect: http://www.theaureview.com/byron-bay/bluesfest-day-three-ft-john-fogerty-seasick-steve


Turramurra Music

I've sent a couple more cbgs down to Turramurra Music in Sydney (see the photos below).

'The Revelator' with Bill Lawrence pickup

'Prodigal Son' with a strainer all the way from Ios, Greece.


I'll be at Jan Power's Powerhouse market this Saturday until 1pm. If you're in Brisbane, drop by.

On Saturday 16 December, I'll be back at Broadbeach market on

the Gold Coast – an amazing office with a view of the beach and

ocean. I know how lucky I am!
