Half a year over and there are still exciting things
Kununurra, Western Australia, was a great surprise for me. The trip up from the Three Ways to Katherine was a very long one.
Surprisingly the rest stops provided along the way were of a high standard and well signed posted so you could plan your breaks easily.
The country changed west of Katherine into rugged ranges,
pandanas and escarpments which was most welcome after the
scrubby country. My excitement continued to escalate as we drew closer to the Western Australian border, heading towards the Kimberleys
Whilst working in Kununurra day trips ranging from Lake Argyle to Wyndham are possible but I’m hankering to push further west. The elusive Barramundi is continuing to play a hide and seek game with me. Lures are being lost in the rocks and the local fish and chip shop is doing a roaring trade; but don’t worry the intrepid hunter will get one yet.
Tag-Along 6 is on the drawing board and by end of August details will be close to being finalised sufficiently to have it out and about. My good friend and colleague, Laura Downing will be accompanying me on Tag-Along No.6 along with Rob and Cheryl Hopkins providing their own highly popular entertainment. Rodney Springer, all the way from Tasmania will be on drums. We will be very strictly limiting the number of vans for this tag so make sure that if you wish to join me on this unique adventure of music, laughs and mateship, you book early.
My latest Album “Ringers In The Sky” has become a very popular CD which has been very rewarding for myself, co-writers and support Artists who have contributed in no small way to make such an outstanding success.
I am leaving Western Australia end of August to return
perform at Festivals and a Cruisin’ Country cruise adventure to wrap up and complete 2018.
Tamworth Country Music Festival will be my first major
commitment in 2019 and my concerts at the Tamworth
Community Centre are well recognised for the quality artists, great venue and enjoyable smoko for the morning tea affording people time to chat with the artists as well as themselves.
Artists booked for Tamworth to date include:-
· John O’Dea, Justin Standley, Kiara Rodrigues for Monday morning the 21st.
· Laura Downing and Rob Hopkins Monday night.
· Tom Maxwell on Tuesday morning the 22nd.
· Tuesday evening is still on the drawing board.
· Keep an eye on my website ‘Tamworth’ page.
Laurel Calvert will also be appearing with me on stage at the festival.
Apart from the shows at the Community Centre, I am also doing a concert at the Balladeers Homestead on Saturday 19th from 1-30pm with Trevor Tolton, “The Boss and The Ringer”. Trevor is certainly no “new chum” in the industry now!
I’m certainly Looking Forward, having no time to Look backwards, with all the adventures life is presenting to me. I hope you can join with me in these exciting times.
Please check out all my performances on the Gig Guide page of this website.
Hoo Roo for now.
