As all of you keen Modhan blog followers will already know, Graham enjoys summer hopping by spending Scottish winters in Australia and vice versa through touring with the brilliant Aussie band The String Contingent. We have often thought that this seems like the ideal lifestyle so the rest Modhan have decided to join in this sunny pursuit and are going to be touring down under for 6 weeks at the beginning of 2013.
A quick look at our gigs page will show that we are basing the tour around three festivals. Starting near Sydney at Illawara Folk Festival we will then be heading down to the Melbourne area for Newstead Live!. Over the following 4 weeks we are planning on playing gigs all the way down the East coast starting in Brisbane and working our way back down towards Melbourne, with a trip over to Tasmania also in the pipeline, before finishing the tour at Cobargo Folk Festival.
Along with gigging and sunshine a plenty, we are also very excited to get the chance to pay homage to the birth place of a certain Wally T Wombat, a musical inspiration to us over the past few years.
