Hope your 2018 has kicked off well – hope to see you all soon somewhere. Ours began with a wedding, two cruises up the Whanganui River on the Waimaie paddle steamer and an afternoon concert at Aotea Lagoon. I’m frantically juggling the diary for the year’s schedule – regular gigs in place at Giuseppe’s (Mediterranean Food Warehouse), The Pavilion, Plimmerton Boating Club and Long Beach Cafe. Short tours to Whanganui, Taranaki, Hawkes Bay, Bay of Plenty and Canterbury under negotiation. Wellington, Taranaki and Rotorua Jazz Club gigs booked, and Devonport Folk Club. Cruise on the Pacific Jewel in April. Taking names for Norfolk Island Festival December 2018 – and booked for the Whare Flat Folk Festival at New Year 2019. Some new songs on the go about John Key, Keith Cramer, wine menus, ukuleles and religion. So it Begins. Hope to see you out there!
