In just a couple of weeks, I am heading back out west to glorious Blackall to perform at the 2011 Heartland Festival, with Sheish Money & Cindy Keong. It’s a place that is very special to me and always stirs up some new writing… I am particularly excited about playing at The Prince of Wales Hotel on Friday, May 27. The last time I performed there, a local Bush Poet started whistling on a gum leaf and all of a sudden the place was overrun with dogs that had come in, barking and creating all sorts of commotion. That kind of magic just doesn’t happen in the city.
The theme for this year’s festival is Lighting Up the West.
