So Thursday night at the Brisbane Jazz Club we have the multitudes on stage, with George Jackson and Luke Moller duplicating every lick Jamie played on the album (on his banjo, mandolin and lap steel) while he lays out his dainty and dirty guitar figures. There will also be a whole lot of violins. Two tracks feature the guest player Jo Lack, so her parts will be covered by Luke but also by a terrible trio of old mates, John Rodgers, Eugenie Costello and all the way from sunny Melbourne, Marjorie Michael. And there's more!!! Cause Pearly Black's understudy will be the phenomenal Megan Sarmardin and helping out on bass and harmony singing we have Helen Russell as well as the glorious warm voices of Barbara Fordham and Anje West. Nothing on the album will be missing!
While on Friday night at Finbar's Maleny, its the pure and simple duo, casual, free entry, early start - very relaxed. And though we have the Maleny Street Party going on outside - chances are the rain gods will drive a few good people in to sit and enjoy...
And I get to rehearse every day this week! And after a year of production and administration I feel like a singer again - beauty!
