'Once in a While' CD Launch
SEND IT DOWN HUGHIE 2 ALBUM
I'm delighted to be one of the 21 artists representing the family of country music – helping to raise money for drought affected farmers - on the soon to be released CD 'Bring it Down Hughie 2'
Featuring Adam Eckersley Band, Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Bob Corbett, Catherine Britt, Damian Howard, Dean Perrett, Felicity Urquhart, Graham Rodger, Grant Richardson, Jeff Brown, John Williamson, Kasey Chambers, Kaylee Bell, Kaylens Rain, Lee Kernaghan, Luke Dickens, Luke O’Shea, Roo Arcus, The McClymonts and Troy Cassar-Daley
All proceeds will be channelled through Aussie Helpers. This, we know goes directly to the farming families in most need. This band of volunteers led by Brian and Nerida are truly inspirational. Some of the work they have done (mostly unpublicised) is exceptional and we are pleased to be able to help. Have a look at their website
performing in the fender airstream lounge, NASHVILLE
During my time at the Americana Music Festival (Americana Music Festival 2013 Chat Forum) in September in Nashville, Tennessee Fender Guitar set up their amazing Airstream Caravan outside the venue, The Cannery. The Airstream Caravan follows all major festivals throughout the USA and records artists performing during the festival. The guys at Fender invited me to come and sing a song or two using their beautiful custom built Guild acoustic guitars. James Pennebaker has been a great supporter and lent me this guitar for the week whilst I was over there. Check it out as it appears on the Guild website! It includes the title track 'Once in a While' from my new CD which we're recording at the moment.
