I finally have a moment to catch my breath so I thought I’d grab a coffee and say hi
I’ve just returned from 3 weeks on the road, a tour that took us from Albury, NSW all the way up to Cairns in QLD, with a trip to the snow with the Boy Wonder in between. I could never call myself a snow bunny – come to think of it, does one ever refer to one’s self as a snow bunny? Do bunnies actually ski? Where did the term come from? Shall I ask another rhetorical question?
The snow was fab, my son was a natural on the snowboard and I remembered the old snow plough from the year 9 ski trip. Aaand I thoroughly recommend the Barrakee ski lodge in Perisher Valley (who didn’t pay me to do so:)
Touring with my band is much like a series of family road trips. I certainly adore them like family. Sean Rudd, Duncan Toombs and Lyn Bowtell make me smile and LAUGH so much, and they are all so very clever. And we sound good thanks to Damon Morton… We have also been lucky enough to have had some guests join us along the way this year; Catherine Britt, Peter Cooper (who plays guitar and is building me a kitchen), Ali Foster, Bec Buchanan, Karen Sierp and Ben Elliot to name a few. Blessed am I. Crowds have been great too, live music is alive and kicking. Thanks to those of you who have come out.
Speaking of, there’s an ep of Australian Story coming on the telly next Monday dedicated to learning a little more about Beccy Cole. I can only imagine what was said in interviews with the likes of Kasey Chambers, Gina Jeffreys, Angry Anderson, Mumbo, Boy wonder and – O’OH, the EX HUSBAND!! I certainly hope people find this glimpse into my world interesting. I absolutely love my job and consider myself very blessed to be living out my childhood dream (do forgive my corn). Everyone’s got a tale to tell and sometimes there’s more to the story than what you see, feels about the right time to be telling mine Check it out July 23rd on ABC 8pm.
Looking forward to a rest before hitting the road again – who’s coming to Gympie? I can’t wait
