DAVID OLNEY DEBUTS DOWN UNDER

Filed under: blues music, acoustic music, folk music, Festivals & Major Events, Gigs, Tours — site admin @ 1:35 pm

“DEEPER WELL” SONGWRITER/ARTIST DAVID OLNEY DEBUTS DOWN UNDER
Legendary Performer/Songwriter On Tap for the National Folk Fest, Brunswick Music Fest and Caravan Music Club with Bill Jackson
Australia/Nashville, TN — “Nobody’s ever heard of him but he’s one of the best songwriters in the world,” says Steve Earle in a popular YouTube video circa 1991 of him covering a David Olney song. Longtime touring and recording artist David Olney has become well-known for his songwriting and live performances – especially those accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Sergio Webb — packed with such intensity it leaves listeners with an experience to remember and has other prominent artists from all genres jockeying to perform his songs.
Townes Van Zandt is often quoted as placing Mr. Olney on his list of top three music writers, alongside of Mozart and Lightnin’ Hopkins.

March 21, 2013 – Brunswick, Victoria - Brunswick Music Festival
April 6, 2013 – Oakleigh, Victoria – Caravan Music Club

Filed under: bluegrass music, Gigs, Tours — site admin @ 1:21 pm

The Pigs’ Great Bluegrass Swindle Tour rolls into Melbourne.
Australia’s favourite bluegrass funsters The Pigs (our heroes) are known internationally for their combination of super-catchy original tunes and foot-stomping ‘Piggified’ cover versions. Crashing through musical genres like a runaway tractor, the Pigs’ latest album, The Great Bluegrass Swindle marries superb musicianship with a distinctly Australian sense of humour – and hints at the uniquely bent energy of The Pigs’ exceedingly popular live shows.

Gil Askey’s trumpet needs to be found and returned. Thnx.

Filed under: jazz music, General — site admin @ 1:04 pm

22.2.2013
Bulletin : Jazz legend Gil Askey has lost his Bach Stradivarius Trumpet (in a black leather case) it’s a long story but it has basically been misplaced. The instrument is of great value to Gil, and we would all love to see him recover it. I would ask all empathetic and savvy musicians to keep an eye open for it, it could turn up in a second hand store.
