So after travelling south from Canberra via a quick stop in Castlemaine for a gig we arrived at the small and very friendly festival of Newstead Live 2013 in Victoria about 90 mins NE of Melbourne.
On the long road South to Newstead Live 2013
Newstead turned out to be a lovely folk festival with tunes being played everywhere you looked in the town throughout the day. We played a couple of slots and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
We have now settled in Melbourne for a couple of weeks as Graham and Chris record an album with the beautiful singer songwriter Lucy Wise and the B’Gollies and Andrew guests on a couple of tracks on a debut recording from Tolka. We are also squeezing in a ceilidh and a gig in Northcote, Melbourne while we are here. As always check out a gigs page for details if you are in Melbourne and fancy a couple of cracking nights out.
We have also been featured in an article with ABC for playing on the Folk Train at the Illawara Folk Festival, complete with picture and interview. We must point out that any opinions expressed regarding recorders in the interview are not views widely held by the band.
