The Wintermoon Music Festival is held yearly in Cameron’s Pocket, just about an hour’s drive north of Mackay Queensland, Australia.  The festival has been going for over 20 years and I have been there for the last 10 or so.  It’s a small privately run festival that is special in so many ways.  The property itself is on the edge of Eungalla National park and holds a vibration of thousands of years of gatherings and celebrations.  I’d like to take this time to acknowledge the traditional custodians of that area, past ancestors, and future generations – the Werri and the Berri people.

Like so many gatherings this year, Wintermoon was postponed.  I know that many people have missed it and so I decided to collect as many songs as I could find that were written specifically about Wintermoon.

The songs I have uncovered are by Andrea Kirwin, The Chai House Band, Rebecca Wright, Rose Bygrave, Swoon, The Brothers Calling, and a very special recording of the closing ceremony by Kenny Dodd. For more Wintermoon Goodness, Check out the other Wintermoon Episodes – Links below!

On the 13-15th of September, 2019, I had the honour of performing at the inaugural Goats Acoustic Sessions, or GAS Festival, hosted by The Hillbilly Goats! This episode is a wrap up of that festival. Bryce and Mahney Wearne are the brains behind the Goats and, after years of being involved in other festivals both on stage and behind the scenes, they decided to create one of their own. They bought a 100 acre block of land, west of Maryborough, Queensland and, over a four month period, worked with a few dedicated volunteers to create the festival site, complete with camping, fresh water, showers and a beautiful huge shed, all fitted out with acoustic batting and accoutraments to make a perfect performance area. Join me as I talk to Bryce and Mahney, and a few of the other performers the day after the festival.

With Rosie Burgess and Sam Lohs!

Jim Toomey came in to this world with a bang – literally! Born in a South London hospital during an air-raid, Jim got the taste of things going boom-boom at an early age. After a stint working for The Automobile Association, Jim became a jazz drummer.  Working as a session musician in London during its musical hayday, he was hanging in clubs with The Rolling Stones, The Animals and jamming with Jimi Hendrix.

In 1976, he joined forces with Peet Coombes Dave Stewart, Annie Lennox and Eddie Chin, forming the band – The Tourists. After touring for three years, and three successful albums, the band broke up.  Jim went on to  form a Sunny Coast band – The Firebirds.

Jim has now written a book called, “We Were Tourists” and will be launching it here on the Sunshine Coast on October 19 2018 at “The Land and Sea Brewery”.
