HI AND WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE!
Well it's been a busy year so far with 6 festivals
down and 1 to go, countless intimate concerts and a USA tour, not
to mention our normal work load of shows between Melbourne (Vic)
and Port Douglas (N.Qld) Having said that it's not all been plain
sailing as we've had to spend a fair amount of $$ on our campervan
to keep the show on the road... no complaints as it's been a real
work horse for us and, fortunately, always got us to the show, but
there's never a good time to get a repair bill! Anyway, all 3 of
us, Phil, Trudy and the Hiace! are commited to hanging in there
so were counting on your continued support.
Speaking of your support, our next endeavors
will be Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival in early November and
an intimate show at Lizottes Newcastle with special guest George
Washingmachine, on Thursday, 17 November. We do need to get bookings
for the latter show to go ahead so please follow the link below
to get a table and please encourage your friends to do the same.
As usual, for further details and links regarding shows, please
check the gig list below.
Our album "One Plus One Equals Three"
was recently reviewed by Michael Smith in Rhythms magazine, you
can read what he had to say on the Music page.
Phil would also like to extend his thanks for
the ongoing support and help of Gerald Pink who's exceptional fingerpicks
he has been using for some time now. Gerald does a fantastic job
of his stainless steel pick sets which he custom makes and are second
to none, it was great to catch up with him at Thredbo. Gerald plans
to have a website up shortly but in the meantime if you need further
information please email us.
While we're busy thanking people we would also
like to extend our gratitude to Peter and Mandy Clinch of ClinchFX
for keeping our gear functioning and David Churchill of Churchill
Guitars for not only keeping our instruments sounding healthy but
also for his tireless support and encouragement!
Cheers Phil and Trudy
