Adrian and I have returned to Daylesford, Victoria, Australia.
We are happy to be here enjoying a couple of months of spring before returning to enjoy autumn in Clarksdale, Mississippi (mid-November). We are also enjoying spending quality time with Miss Jelly Bean.
On the 7th of November we will return to the Radio Springs Hotel in Lyonville, VIC, AU, as the Table Hill duo and play during dinnertime. We’ll be missing our friend, Phil, who will still be on the road……bless his busking heart! Hopefully, we’ll all-three be in the same place and time to play-away the time, sometime in early 2015.
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.
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!
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:
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.
Adrian Kosky 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.
