G'day

I think that's what they say

We're in the land of the marsupials for September, which will explain why we're not around in the UK

As well as visiting family & friends, we've been offered a few gigs, so we'd like to plug them here, for anyone in the vicinity

We'll be at the Illawarra Folk Club in Wollongong on Saturday 17 September, the Merry Muse club in Canberra on Friday 23rd and the Loaded Dog, Sydney on Saturday 24th. Details on the club websites

Looking forward to meeting our down-under friends again

G'day indeed, and welcome to Oz again! Unfortunately Himself and I won't be able to see you this trip, as we moved out of Sydney last year and now live in Tamworth, 6 hours north-west. Let me know if you are coming up this way, we have a bed for visitors!

Cheers

Enjoy the trip - we stayed with friends in Wollongong in 1990. By the time you get back, we'll be heading for Scotland.

Hope to fix our last trip to Llangennith in November to coincide with the Halfpenny club.

Our first week was in Sydney with Andrew's mum and brother and family. We're now in Melbourne with my daughter and her husband and our lovely grandaughter. Superb times!

Sorry we'll not get to see you Jenny - I don't think we'll be able to make that journey this trip - thank you so much for the offer.

We'll look out for Morgan & Harvey while we're here Valmai and give them your best. See you in November!

Andrew & Carole-

Do say G'Day to all our friends there, and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time.

I do hope you time overlaps with the shanty sings aboard the James Craig in Sidney Harbour, if the sessions are still running.

Cheerily,

Charley,

I'd been trying to get them a night there, but there are no shanty sessions at the moment. Mike closed the session over winter & now he's unwell till at least end of October.

But I have suggested Carole & Andrew visit the Maritime Museum & as I have a free ticket, I might just join them.

another good ferry trip is Parramatta (Sydney's second settlement, 1788, 15 miles up the river from the harbour) to Sydney for a different view of the Harbour Bridge. Watching it grow as you head towards it is fantastic,

ad for their Illawarra Folk Club appearance in Big Russ's inimitable style (ps. Chloe of Young & Jacksons )

sandra

==============


subject - Un-nuded Chloe, latter day convicts and twins


Chloe Comes To The Gong

"Young and Jacksons" the pub where Melbournians call,

To drink with their 'Chloe' who hangs on the wall.

She's a legend, a beauty, she's lithe and she's tall,

And as for her clothes - why she wears none at all.


But this Melbourne 'Chloe', is really quite boring

An inanimate portrait, She never goes touring,

There's a new Melbourne Chloe, with voice pure and rare

And she'll sing at the 'Diggers', make sure that you're there

Bigruss

   

OLD SOUTH WALES, MELBOURNE'S CHLOE AND TWINS

Saturday 17th at the City Diggers Club Wollongong


Make sure you get to this one, Chloe and Silas just back from an extensive OS tour where they killed them in the UK.
Andrew and Carol from Old South Wales, whose ancestors failed to get caught and sent to New South Wales but are now here to see what they missed out on.
And then there's Alanna and Alicia (with Damien Neil and Bridget Graham) the touring twins escaping from Melbourne.


Action at 7.30pm. great meals at the Club Restaurant, and still only $10 and $15 and as always the Mystery Performer and The cheapest Coopers on Tap in the Gong.

You'll love 'em- bigruss



Read on for more info.


A highlight of The Illawarra Folk Club's Concert on Saturday 17th September at the Diggers Club will be a visit from two fine folk performers from our parent colony, Old South Wales - Andrew McKay and Carole Etherton


Andrew and Carole live on the Gower Peninsula, near Swansea in South Wales. Both are experienced and accomplished singers and instrumentalists. Andrew plays the somewhat obscure Crane Duet concertina, while Carole favours the even rarer tenor Cornamuse, a gentler relative of the Crumhorn. They sing mainly in the British folk style, including recently-composed songs which sound like they're traditional, many of which they write themselves. Also some Music Hall songs, and . . . well, anything they like, really.

Their songwriting has been described as 'reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling and C Fox Smith' with the added bonus that they 'do all the tunes themselves'. Most of their songs are based on the social history, legends and humour of their home area but are proving popular worldwide, with versions reportedly being sung in Folk Clubs in the USA, New Zealand and elsewhere. Their songs are recorded on three CDs currently available from their website www,cranedrivinmusic.com.


Then from Melbourne comes the ever popular Chloe Hall with her fiddle playing mate, Silas. Chloe has made a number of appearances at the club over the last few years.

Chloe has been playing music all her life and won her first songwriting award at age 14. An early love of Irish folk music led her on a fruitful journey as a teenage troubadour, from open mic nights in Melbourne to countless stages on the Australian folk circuit through the mid to late 90's. After studying voice and composition at the Conservatorium at Melbourne University, she left to carve out a career as a contemporary singer/songwriter.

Chloe has built a reputation for her beautiful voice, well-crafted songs and warm, heartfelt performances. She has performed extensively, everywhere from small pubs to major festivals, including the Port Fairy and National folk festivals.

Chloe and Silas have just returned from their third tour to the UK where her albums received airplay on the BBC. http://www.chloehall.com.au/


The best site to hear Alanna & Alicia is: www.myspace.com/alannaandaliciaeganband where there are 8 tracks, the first three being from their new album and the others demos.


Finally we have the twins. Twin sister singer/songwriters Alanna & Alicia from Melbourne have charmed audiences from Port Fairy to the National Folk Festival with their own special blend of folk/jazz/roots songs, their onstage warmth and humor and their beautiful new album, 'Two in a Book', recorded with the assistance of a Vic Rocks Arts Grant and released in 2010.

Known for their fine songwriting and sweet harmonies, both girls have won several awards at national festivals, with Alicia 'Best New Talent' at Port Fairy Folk Festival in 1998.

They will be accompanied by fine guitarist Damien Neil and the talented Bridget Graham on violin and piano.

'deliciously idiosyncratic and saucy songs...wry, frank observations of life and love?quality quirky lyrics delivered with verve and the kind of close harmonies you'd expect from sisters?consummate backing.' Tony Hillier, Rhythms magazine.


The action kicks off at 7.30 pm ESFT (Eastern Standard Folk Time) admission is still $10 (members) $15 (others)


Cheers!
Russell Hannah

It's times like these I sorta wish I was in Oz - Wheeze and Suck, Andrew and Carole and a session. Who could ask for more?

Of course we see Andrew and Carole over here, and we have lots of sessions of all kinds to go to. I've been encouraging the Wheezers to come over here - most of them are English anyway, and I know people would love 'em in England. Nigel said maybe in 2013 when the Olympic madness has died down :) ***keeping fingers crossed***

oops, a little typo in the second blicky!

forgot to include a report from Canberra Chris who was their host when they performed at the Merry Muse, Canberra.

Friday night at the Muse went very well, but with disappointing numbers - perhaps a familiar story! It was lovely to have them stay, and I really liked the cornemuse. I now know where Gower is too.

-----------

Our audience was small, too - 31 paid, 6 performers, 4 partners, 6 volunteers, but everyone was a singer, so it was the usual great singing audience.

3 floorspots got us singing. I forgot to take pics of the others & only have pics of the surprise of the night.

Ozcatter Squeezeme turned up! I've not heard him play before apart from once on a CD with his old singing partner, Nick Lock with whom he performed as Bodmin Gaol in the 80's. They hadn't rehearsed but did such a great job, I've told them they are obviously back together again, so will be booked for the Dog next year!

Carole & Andrew also wowed the audience & when our official video-er, Ray sorts out what he has, we'll post a few songs from the evening on the Loaded Dog's Youtube channel

Wheeze & Suck Band also did their usual great show, so a good time was had.

Ray also took his camera to freda's session & recorded a fair bit.

We had a great weekend.

Lovely to see and hear Andrew and Carole over here again, natural and apparently effortless songwriting and performance. I understand there is plenty more in the pipeline!

Another high (or low) at the Merry Muse was former Shiny Bum Tim Keeble who was MCing dragging me off the floor and press-ganging a bemused Andrew into joining the hand-on-heart line-up for an impromptu rendition of 'The Rugby Song' ("We are large, but we are stupid ..") in honour of the other World Cup in progress across the ditch.

Well, our time down under draws to a close. Thanks to all who made it possible, and enjoyable. The three gigs went well, we've had invites to do it again, the weather has been good(ish), friends and family have been welcoming and kind. We leave behind a number of songs, which we hope people may be moved to sing, and hopefully some fond memories also.

Back to the UK tomorrow, and then on to the future.

Welcome back here to the UK, Andrew and Carole. You'll be happy to know that we are currently experiencing a bit of an indian summer over here, which partly makes up for the 'summer' we almost had when it was supposed to be summer. Not sure how long it will last, but today is a glorious sunny day and 25 degrees :) It's predicted to go till about Monday, so you might catch the tail end of it!

We start travelling tomorrow night (Saturday) and will get to the far reaches of Gower on Monday night. The weather here has been cool by Australian standards - although we have been travelling on the trains in tee shirts while the locals were in warm coats and scarves!!

It's been a wonderful time of family, friends, song and music - who could ever ask for more?!

We've met up with so many friends/Mudcatters that we have met before, made lots of new friends and even met up with friends who we had met before but we had all forgotten that we had previously met!!

Our special thanks to Mudcat friends - Canberra Chris, Sandra in sydney, Bob Bolton & Freda Underhill.

September, and spring in general, can be funny in Australia - can go from really hot to quite chilly, with often rain and wind thrown in. I much prefer the autumn there - it seems more stable. It's also when my two favourite Oz folk festivals are on, in April. So naturally, we've planned to visit Oz next April to catch the National in Canberra (which can be extremely chilly at night) and St Albans later in April, which was already one of my favourite little festivals, but which has become even more so since Rob and I got married there last year.

So now that you are on your way back here, Andrew and Carole, do you have any more festivals planned soon? We'll be at Banbury next weekend, but actually festival season is winding down now, so I don't suppose there will be too many more in the coming months :(
