Hi there Strangers,
Sorry it’s been so long between newsletters, but you know how it is... life always seems to get in the way!

I hope that this finds you all well and that the past few months have been kind to you... for Maya and me it has been an interesting time with concerts, fairs and horses.

I will be starting up the Music Nights again soon so watch this space, and to get the momentum going we are holding a very special event on our property over the Easter Weekend, Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th April... it’s called

“The Spirit of the Forest”

We are very lucky to be living where we live, just down the road from the “Grandis” (the tallest tree in NSW) and surrounded on 3 sides by National Park.

We share Forest Glen with our beautiful Arabian horses, Jericho, the stallion his many mares and foals, a couple of donkeys, two whippets, chooks, a rather fat goat and of course cattle.

It’s a wonderful setting for music and fun and that’s what we aim to have on the weekend.

It’s FREE so come and enjoy it!

We are holding this to aid two very special people raise awareness for something that affects us all, the preservation of the lungs of this world... the Rainforests.

Prince Mama Kiama (yes a real prince) aka Datu Efren Mandipensa and his wife Lisa Mandipensa were sent by the Elders of the Higaonon Tribe, to create worldwide awareness of the plight of the rainforest and its importance to our survival as a planet.

The last remaining virgin rainforest in the Philippines could vanish in the next ten years if illegal logging and mining continues to strip the land. If this were to occur his 350, 000 strong Higaonon people and all the rainforest animals will be in danger of extinction. They depend on the forest for their supermarket, hospital, home and church. Amongst other species the Monkey Eating Eagle, the largest eagle in the world, is also facing extinction as the forest diminishes.

Datu is also one of the finest singer songwriters that I have met in my life, (and believe me I’ve met and played with the best) he writes with a sincerity and passion rarely heard...he is inspirational! We are in the process of recording a CD together and will be performing concerts in the near future.

Datu will be singing his wonderful songs as well as performing some of his tribal dances and stories.

Also there will be Belly Dancing, Lectures on all sorts of interesting stuff, Psychic readings, Market Stalls; I’ll be giving a demonstration on Horse Communication (Whispering) and strumming on the old banjo( not at the same time of course!).

Any donations will go to the “One World, One Tribe and One Family” project to help save the Mindanao Rainforest

I’ve included a poster for you spread the word, if you want to perform on the weekend that would be great or if you have any questions about the weekend please give me or Maya an ring on 02 4997 4597 or 0414 903 237.
Yours in Harmony

Next Saturday 9th September I’ll be performing at Acito’s Café in Hawks Nest as part of the “Walk on the Wildside” weekend, it will be an “up close and personal” concert as it is only a small venue, those of you who have been there for the Music Nights they have on Thursdays will know that the food is superb, the price for a dinner and the show is $50.00 it all starts at 7:00, for bookings phone Acito’s 02 4997 0363.

The REALLY GOOD News is that my old friends Normie Rowe and Peter Dean are returning to the Great Lakes and will be performing with me on
Saturday 30th September at Old Bar Oval on the Main Stage
This concert will be part of the wonderful festivities that are being held at the OLD BAR BEACH FESTIVAL over the long weekend.

Normie is possibly the greatest Australian Rock Legend of our time and Peter is one of the best comedians and musical wits around, I’m really looking forward to working with both of these guys again.

It will be a family show at the bargain price of $15.00 for adult and kids under 14 (if accompanied by an adult) FREE.

The show starts at 7:00 tickets can be obtained at

Bulahdelah Music Night Newsletter
August 2006
Peter Dean
 
We had a great time with Peter Dean he is truly a world class act musically and comically, it is great to have an entertainer of this talent and professionalism come to Bulahdelah, but, I must admit it was disappointing we didn’t get a very big turnout.

I really want to continue bringing professional acts every few months to our music nights and most of them come knowing that they will only cover travel expenses, but they need an audience to appreciate them!

Peter and I performed our “Ballads and Balderdash” show at Tuncurry on the following Sunday and it was a ripper of a night he is a great guy to work with and always has the crowd and myself in stitches.

The Bowling Club is a great venue for music with really warm acoustics; we are very lucky to have such a good room in town.
The next Music Night will be held on Wednesday 9th August from 7:00pm.
And it’s FREE.
It’s an open microphone night so bring your instruments and have a bash.
A couple of folks have said they’d like to bring their poems…. Please do.
Those of you who were there last month will remember Peter Kershaw’s humorous verse about “The Meeting”… wonderful stuff!
Your Harmonically

July 2006
Dear All,
The first night at our new venue was a resounding success; the acoustics at the Bulahdelah Bowling Club are wonderful.

John again surprised and delighted us with his new “What Is That Tune?” quiz game, and flutes, mandolins, accordions, guitars… even an Ocarina (I hope that’s correct spelling, Shimona) were presented by our merry group of performers to give our music night that unique flavour. I’d like to mention the first time performance of Leteisha who out sang Kasey Chambers… I hope we see a lot more of this talented young lady.
The next night will be:
Wednesday 12th July starting at 7:00 at
THE BULAHDELAH BOWLING CLUB.
It’s with great pleasure to announce that one of the funniest comedians I have ever known is coming to town to perform for us:-

The King of Cockney Comics Peter Dean

Peter Dean is renowned for his great comedy, sound effects, and vocal impressions and of course is “The Man” when it comes to blues harp!

He has won 14 Mo Award nominations and he is ranked as one of the finest and funniest comedians in Australia today.

He has worked Australia’s largest venues, traveled the world wowing audiences and performed with some of the world’s finest entertainers, Tom Jones, Joe Cocker, Roy Orbison, The Village People, Cilla Black, and Ray Charles, to name but a few, his impressions of some of these stars will leave you rocking in the aisles and believing you’re hearing the real thing!.

With a successful career on British T.V. and the London stage behind him he took the plunge and came to Australia, since then local audiences have loved his strong British warmth and wicked wit.

“Farewell the Court Jesters.... Hail the King!”
“Don’t let this man out of the cage, he’s dangerously funny!”
“The original Cockney Comic!”
“Wow… what a voice! More Tom Jones than Tom Jones!”
“I haven’t laughed so much in ages”

There will be a door charge on this show of $15 (with kids under 14 and performers free) and I guarantee that you will have the most entertaining night you’ve had in ages.

I’ve known Peter for many years and I never miss his show … it’s unpredictable, very funny and he is a really talented musician, he played on my new CD “Favourable Winds”

THE SHOW IS RATED PG
*****************************
NOTE TO PERFORMERS:-
If you want to perform on this night please give me a ring on 02 4997 4597 or 0414 903 237 by Monday 10th, so that I can organise the running order for the night.
****************************
Last Weekend (24th & 25th June) Maya and I held the second annual “MYSTICS, MUSIC & MASSAGE” Festival at “The Little Darlings Tea House” at Failford, it was a resounding success, I’d really like to thank Desert Jewels (Belly Dancers),Unreal Neil, Peter Kershaw and Brett and Astrid for coming and playing in the sunshine.

We will be holding another one soon possibly even closer to home as it has something for every one …..Mysticism for the mind, Music for the ears and Massage for the body.
***************
Over the next few months we will have some exciting acts coming through town and performing for us at our music nights including one of the greatest multi instrumentalists in the world ANDREW CLERMONT (who at the moment is on an extensive tour of Europe and Africa)
So please support these nights and bring your friends.
Yours in Harmony

Bulahdelah Music Night Newsletter
June 2006
Hi there,
Another month passes and we’re nearly half way through 2006…time flies.
I had a very enjoyable tour with 6,000 kms covered criss crossing Victoria and New South Wales, from Tottenham to Wonthaggi, Ivanhoe to Wangaratta and towns along the Murrey, starting in Albury and finishing in Wagga Wagga.

Great audiences all round and a good travelling companion, Colin Perkins, who is one half of “Wallis and Matilda” of “Clancy of the Overflow” fame.
He will be performing for us in the future, but more of that later.
But I suppose the big news this month is that there is a change of venue,
The next night will be at:
The Bulahdelah Bowling Club
7:00pm Wednesday 14th June
It’s a wonderful auditorium with great stage and close to town and I know that our nights will go from strength to strength with internationally acclaimed acts coming to share their talents with us, for example in July one of Australia’s top comedians, Peter Dean, will be giving us his slant on life and music.

This month we will be featuring some of my favourite acts… our local musicians. It’s great to be associated with such talent and we have all the “C’s” covered Comedy, Classics, Country, Contemporary (and Folk!)
Don’t forget it’s all happening at The Bowling Club!
See you there,
Trevor Knight
 
 Trevor Knight
Trevor Knight is a singer, storyteller and songwriter. He builds his repertoire of contemporary, country and folk songs from all around the world.
His show, titled “Spirit of the Eagle”, reflects the soul of John Denver, and brings to audiences  Trevor’s own special and personal interpretation of John’s music and the story of his complex life, through the turbulent sixties and on through the three decades of his career.

Trevor shared the generation, the mood, and the spirit of those times and his special connection with John is evident.
 
Trevor’s own career includes eight years as a guest star on Ray Martin’s Midday Show, two Golden Guitar awards for the song “The Days of Old Khancoben” and  the album with Smoky Dawson “High Country” and many successful years of cruising  with P&O in the South Pacific.

“Spirit of the Eagle”is not a tribute and not an impersonation, Trevor shows us the romance, adventure and fun that was John Denver and as we listen to the stories and sing along with the songs, we realize that we were fans all along.
