Hope you're doing well. Writing to you from Utrecht, NL.

The tour going well so far. Glastonbury, Germany, heading to France tomorrow then one last show in the UK and then home. (Header photo is the view from the Glastonbury stage by Anna Erik).

I've been sharing heaps of vids, pics and whatever else on Patreon. You should join us there if you want to come on a bit more of the ride.


A couple of weeks back we got some media attention for the music program I run at the Hunter Correctional Centre (some call it Cessnock Prison). The centre runs Skill Classes for inmates, and I’ve been looking after the music classes for two sessions each week when around. It was great to have a light shone on the success stories, and how music can change people's lives.

There's a bunch of stories here from NBN News, ABC Radio and the Cessnock Advertiser to read / watch or listen to.
