Melbourne Ukulele Festival 2012

Just back from a fantastic weekend at the Melbourne Ukulele Festival.
We played at the Trade Unions Hall on Lygon St in Carlton.... old worn stone staircases, high high ceilings, paint peeling off the walls and a huge picture of Gough Whitlam just outside the ladies powder room with lipstick kisses all over it.
The line up was world class; jazz, comedy, folk, punk... a veritable feast of extraordinary musicianship and talent.
Bosko and Honey were sublime as ever...i nearly lost my voice screaming with laughter at Honey's punk classic "Tuck Me In". AJ Leonard and his Tropical Lounge were awesome as was Tyrone from Brisbane...to me he is like Leunig with a ukulele and big teeth. Lots of fabulous international acts too..Benny Chong , an amazing jazz player from Hawaii and much much more.
One of my favourite things about this festival is the way it includes the whole community...families..young people..old people...I felt at home.
Played to a warm, friendly audience and had a great response to my very new , only-just-finished-that-day-song,  "Lay Down Your Burden"...
It was lots of fun being in the 'big smoke". though I must say its always a huge relief to come home to the 'bush'. I've become such a country bumpkin...city life ain't for me.
I'd like to send out a big thankyou to Dean Denham ( festival director) and all the kind generous workers / volunteers who once again made us feel so welcome. The sound was excellent and the atmosphere was full of fun. Cant wait til next year !

    and there a huge load of bosses now who couldn't separate between a film treatment from a spa one if their lives depended upon it, there are still people, people at the top, who are at this point carrying on that phenomenal act of being fascinated with film.
