Recently, GoDaddy discontinued and deleted all the Quickblog blogs, so I have transferred all my Memphis Dulcimer blog posts to this wordpress blog. Unfortunately, all my categories and keywords were lost in the transfer. What could be transferred was transferred and what was lost was lost. I’m lucky to have what information and recordings I have previously posted, as without the internet, I’m sure my personal history/activities would be forgotten.
I like music, but I love peace of mind. Without music, I cannot find peace of mind.
Thank God for music blogs!
Last night I was part of the Table Hill band trio at the Radio Springs Hotel, in Lyonville, Victoria, Australia. We enjoyed having our +1 friend, Ken Parfrey, join in for some fun.
Ken is one of the owners of the Radio Springs Hotel, located in a small country town that is affectionately known as the “centre of the universe” and not too far from where I live in Daylesford.
Next week I’ll be returning to Clarksdale, Mississippi, after a month back here in Daylesford, down under. It’s been a lovely month here. The weather is cooling and the leaves are changing to beautiful colors of gold, orange & red, every day.
I have had a few chances to play music publicly, while I’ve been here. I am thankful for that!
So, I’ve got a few tunes that I am happy to share. These are the last to be heard from Table Hill for a few months, as Adrian and I are traveling….off to the Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale
next week and then staying through June.
Phil has a solo gig at the Rupanyup Dirt Music Festival
on Sunday, April 4th. The next time we play together as Table Hill will be at the Radio Springs Hotel on July 5th.
Here are a few of my recordings from Thai Night last night. Good sounds and yummy memories!
I am now a Mississippi strummer!
Last night I enjoyed playing music with Adrian Kosky
at the Griots
Christmas Gathering in Clarksdale.
What a wonderful gathering it was! With a potluck dinner (including delicious berry cobbler for dessert), a visit from Santa, fellowship with new friends — the young and the young-at-heart — with a bit of mountain music thrown in for extra fun, it was a lovely event.
Also, today makes my postal presence official. I have a new business address for The Holy Moly
! My mailing address in the U.S. is:
The Holy Moly
P.O. Box 1531
Clarksdale, Mississippi, U.S.A.

I’ve got the suitcase out and ready to be packed up for my trip to The Mississippi Delta! Mountain dulcimers are already packed, of course.
I’m packing up for a three-month trip to my new residence in the U.S.A. While in the U.S. I’ll be residing in my new home/office located in the old Masonic Temple building in downtown Clarksdale.
and I are excited about this new journey together. We are challenging ourselves to create another group accommodation facility, similar to what we have created at Tasma House and Gardens.
At times, when festivals and events are not being held in Clarksdale, we believe that any group of people who would like to soak up the inspirational, creative, depths of The Delta, could hire a bus and come stay with us for a taste of blues, art, food, and Southern culture.
Yesterday Table Hill had a lot of fun playing with Ken Parfrey during lunch in the lane way for El Gordo in Bendigo, Vic, AU. Here’s Megan Spencer’s photo.
It was a bit of a road trip, getting to play at El Gordo in Bendigo, but quite a lot of fun getting there and back to Daylesford
in the Radio Springs Hotel
