OK, I have uploaded 2 more shows, both video this time:

- Neil Adam at George Town Festival, Tasmania, 1997 (30 mins approx):

- Kavisha Mazzella at George Town Festival, Tasmania, 1996 (42 mins approx:

Both of these are fine Australian singer-songwriters, although Neil is originally from the UK (he played with Silly Wizard at one time). Neil is a refreshingly original composer, singer and guitarist; I liked one of his compositions (a waltz entitled "The Bride's Return") so much that I recorded a version of it on my own CD of 20-odd years ago. Kavisha is of Italian-Scottish-Burmese heritage and brings a definite Italian slant to some of her songs. Her version of the Tarantella (bringing on some guusts, both nusicians and dancers) towards the end of her set is priceless. She has one of the great voices of contemporary Australian folk music - if you have not discovered her, you definitely should :) .
