I’ll be collaborating with a group of poets, authors, musicians and artists for a very special Melbourne Writer’s Festival show: Dylan Thomas 100: In Chapters.
This event forms part of a global celebration of Wales’ most famous poet, playwright and author, Dylan Thomas. We will mark the centenary of his birth with a rolling revue mixing music, literature and film, with an array of singers and players, novelists and poets, from Wales and beyond.
An Exciting New Songwriting Project!
This week, I started an exciting new project with my trio (me: singin’ uke and guitar, Chris Stone: violin, Holly Downes: double bass)
We’re writing a bunch of new songs that feature poems from The Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards, a national competition that has supported creativity in schools since 1974. We’re honoured to be heading up to Gunnedah in two weeks to be a part of their 40th anniversary celebration. We will be performing these new songs at the awards ceremony for this year’s competition on Friday, 29th August.
