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!

From a small farming town in Northern New South Wales to becoming the head (and only) chef on a remote scientific research station in the Antarctic – Annette Fear has always taken the road less travelled! Her early life took her to many places – including the USA – Asia – and even Yandina, where she helped establish one of Australia’s most iconic destination restaurants and cooking schools – Peter and Helen Brierty’s, The Spirit House. After twenty years (during which she also co-owned her own successful restaurant in Sunshine Beach, Queensland – Sabai Sabai, and co-authored, with Helen Brierty, five successful cookbooks for the Spirit House) Annette decided she wanted a new challenge and persistantly applied for a spot on Macquarie Island research station until they finally gave it to her. There, she  cooked for the station, observed the penguins and elephant seals and played with the baby seals after they were weened from thier mothers.  Annette’s journey doesn’t seem any closer to over as she takes off on another trip around the world! Her story is fascinating and inspiring!

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”.
