What a great night, even though Australia Day had already been and gone… due to lack of imagination and time we soldiered on and did the Australia Day book with the addition of a few new tunes… most importantly ‘Riptide’ , Vance Joy’s Hottest 100 winner of 2014… performed on Ukulele no less. A good year for the uke already… sung by Rosie who did a really great job.
Great friend and singer songwriter Sara Tindley was back again to lead Archie Roach’s ‘Took The Children Away’ and ‘My Island Home’. We also were treated to Khe Sanh… what a great band we had in Dave Sanders on drums, The Mighty Rod Coe on double Bass, Evan Sun on Mando and Guitar, Chad Sheather on Uke with new friends, Tirza on BV’s and partner Dan on accordion, not to mention the most lovely Dorothy Johnston on washboard and vocals who wore the most spangled Australia Day outfit imaginable. Thanks to Luis and Deb and lovely whistling from Reuben James Eadie.
