Looking like great weather for a long day of music and conviviality.
Real nice way to start the day with Fiona Boyes easing us in with some mighty fine finger pickin’ blues.
Like the song ‘walkin around money’ . The preacher has arrived from his gig. Fiona just sang a love song to New Orleans.
Got the shuttle bus from the resort and for some reason we did a tour of Moana and picked up no one!
At the Bridge listening to 1920 not bad. They have run out of wine glasses so Wendy is drinking her Chardonney out of a pot.
In the Echuca club which was up until very recently a men’s only club. Listening to Safari Motel
Over to the Echuca Hotel for George McFloyd and was happy to see Peter Howell on bass. We had a good rap with Stringybark McDowell. Place is packed in the courtyard and it takes a long time to get a beer. Snuck into the front bar where Geoff Achison is doing a solo acoustic set.
Back over to the Bridge for Loius King and the Liars Club. Gotta love a bit of rock a billy
Down to the Harvest Bar for White Lightning. Burgers on offer in the attached cafe. Asked if they could cut Wendy’s preferred burger into quarters and do you believe they would not do it? Not sure if it was too hard to do or some other reason. Anway I complained a couple of times with no success. Third time I cracked it and went off at the burger chefs and then walked out. Next thing I know is someone with authority came and apologised and took our burger order.
We are at the Harvest Hotel for Geoff Achison and the Soul Diggers. Intersecting concept where you have a very big pub restaurant with diners and a bday celebabration and they have no idea who is playing. Then you have the music punters who wanna listen to the music standing around the perimeter. As the non music people left the punters swooped on the vacant seats like a Williamstown seagull after dropped chip.
Someone Tell Me Something That I Don’t Know – this song rocks
What an incredible version of Robert Johnson’s Walking Blues it just went off to a different hemisphere
