Today we are celebrating her new album, "Bloom".I have so much admiration for Andrea because, not only is she a world class musician, she is also an amazing entrapreneur.

Ep049 - The Wintermoon Songs

The Wintermoon Music Festival is held yearly in Cameron's Pocket, just about an hour's drive north of Mackay Queensland, Australia. The festival has been going for over 20 years and I have been there for the last 10 or so. It's a small privately run festival that is special in so many ways. The property itself is on the edge of Eungalla National park and holds a vibration of thousands of years of gatherings and celebrations. I'd like to take this time to acknowledge the traditional custodians of that area, past ancestors, and future generations - the Werri and the Berri people.Like so many gatherings this year, Wintermoon was postponed. I know that many people have missed it and so I decided to collect as many songs as I could find that were written specifically about Wintermoon.The songs I have uncovered are by Andrea Kirwin, The Chai House Band, Rebecca Wright, Rose Bygrave, Swoon, The Brothers Calling, and a very special recording of the closing ceremony by Kenny Dodd.

Ep047 The Goat's Acoustic Sessions Wrap-up

On the 13-15th of September, 2019, I had the honour of performing at the inaugural Goats Accoustic Sessions, or GAS Festival, hosted by The Hillbilly Goats! This episode is a wrap up of that festival. Bryce and Mahney Wearne are the brains behind the Goats and, after years of being involved in other festivals both on stage and behind the scenes, they decided to create one of their own. They bought a 100 acre block of land, west of Maryborough, Queensland and,over a four month period worked with a few dedicated volunteers to create the festival site, complete with camping, fresh water, showers and a beautiful huge shed, all fitted out with acoustic batting and accoutraments to make a perfect performance area. Join me as I talk to Bryce and Mahney, and a few of the other performers the day after the festival. Check out trtpod.com to see photos, videos and links to all their websites!

Ep046 Annette Fear - Celebrity Chef Gone Wild!

From a small farming town in Northern New South Wales to becoming the head (and only) chef on a remote scientific research station in the Antarctic - Annette Fear has always taken the road less travelled! Her early life took her to many places - including the USA - Asia - and even Yandina, where she helped establish one of Australia's most iconic destination restaurants and cooking schools - Peter and Helen Brierty's, The Spirit House. After twenty years (during which she also co-owned her own successful restaurant in Sunshine Beach, Queensland - Sabai Sabai, and co-authored, with Helen Brierty, five successful cookbooks for the Spirit House) Annette decided she wanted a new challenge and persistently applied for a spot on Macquarie Island research station until, after five years, they finally gave it to her. There, she cooked for the station, observed the penguins and elephant seals and played with the baby seals after they were weened from their mothers. Annette's journey doesn't seem any closer to over as she takes off on another trip around the world! Her story is fascinating and inspiring! And check out all other links at www.trtpod.com
