Ask not for whom the bell tolls...

... it tolls for thee.

April saw the passing of legendary song man and humanitarian Jimmy Little. Jimmy was my friend and mentor for sixteen years, through several albums and many memorable shows. He was a great inspiration to generations of fans. Come on down to the state memorial service and celebratory concert at Sydney Opera House on May 3 and give this great Australian a big send off. Tix are free but you have to apply here.

Meanwhile I’ll be in Italy doing a few shows late April with my road warrior friends Daniele Di Giovanni and Aldo Betto. May 27 I’ll be back taking part as a mentor in Songwriting Coaching at APRA Song Summit Sydney. June I’ll be doing a couple of solo spots and an open tune/slide guitar masterclass at 4th Perisher Snowy Mountains of Music as well as a one-off show at Canberra's Paperback Sessions Fri June 8 on the way down. July I'm doing a solo blues spot every sunday at Rock Lily bar at Star casino. Check dates page for more info. See youse all on the mean streets…. Brendo
