playing with Alanna and Alicia Eagan

I’ve had the great pleasure of playing with Alanna and Alicia Eagan and Silas Palmer at the Northern Beaches Festival in Sydney last weekend.  I’m not sure how to embed a video here, but if you click on this link you can hear us performing….

I’ve been a very lazy blogger, so I think I’ll just pop up what I’m doing for now, so at least I’m visiting the page.  Please feel free to ask me questions.  I love talking about guitars, music, performing and anything else that comes to mind.

I played my beautiful new guitar for the first time at this festival.  It’s a Martin OM42, I think it’s a keeper!

Musings of a Melbourne Muso – last gig with Alex Burns

Well it was the end of an era on Sunday.  My last official gig with Melbourne Blues guru, Alex Burns.  Here’s a pic of us playing together at the Drunken Poet, one of Melbourne’s top watering holes, just across the road from the Victoria Market.  This was last Sunday, Tuesday 26 Nov, 2013.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANo bad feelings between us.  The reason we’re calling it a day is that Alex wants to keep rehearsing and I’ve started up some new projects (I’ll be blogging about these lots soon) that are taking up my practice time.
