Digging Baron Field

I had a chat with Brisbane country-blues troubadour Baron Field last week in the lead up to the release of his debut album and his feature at this Sunday’s (March 6) SpeedPoets 10th Birthday Gig. We talk about the albums that keep pulling us in, the writing process, how Ipswich is a fine fish & chip town, great places to check out live music in Brisbane and the curse of flat-footedness. There is also a link to Baron’s bandcamp site where you can listen to a number of tracks off the album. If you like a poetic lyric, are not adverse to finely picked guitar (or even a banjo), enjoy all the smoothness of a gravel-cured voice, then this man just may be your new favourite singer-songwriter.  You can read the full interview here.

Countdown to SpeedPoets 10th Birthday Bash

This week is a big one… 

Tonight’s gig at Riverbend Books is almost sold out (a few tickets left so get there early!!!), tomorrow nights gig at Confit Bistro is being filmed for Channel 7’s The Great Southeast and then on Friday night I fly down to Melbourne to feature at The Castlemaine Poetry Reading (at The Guildford Hotel), hosted by Ross Donlon on Sunday, Feb 27.

Big times indeed…

And to add to that excitement, I am counting down the days until SpeedPoets celebrates its 10th birthday on Sunday March 6 at InSpire Gallery Bar (71 Vulture St. West End). SpeedPoets has kicked off the year by revamping their website and the first person to step on to the virtual stage is one of the 10th birthday features, our lovely lady from 4ZzZ’s Waxing Lyrical, Fern Thompsett. Head on over and check out our interview and read her poem Sunset on the Back Steps.
