I had the privilege of a wonderful local singer playing at my recent wedding. I heard her at the ANU open day in August and approached to ask if she would play. She did, and she was wonderful!
Please take the time to check out her clips on youtube and her website.
On occasion I am reminded that music isn’t just a think that happens when musicians hold an instrument, but is actually a craft that people learn.
Watching this video was one of those occasions.
Check out more of Fossil Rabbit’s (AKA Chris Finnigan) work on SoundCloud.
Canberran pop-folk comedy act Sparrow Folk have just put together a love letter for Canberra. Knowing that their work usually is usually full of jokes I kept waiting for this song to take a twist into making fun of Canberra, but no, it remains sincere and sweet throughout.

Go be relaxed.

Starting to get good turnouts for band nights seems the word is getting around that this place is the new live music venue in town. check out the facebook page (magpies underground) for upcoming events.
Come support local bands in the heart of civic.
When I realised the VANS Warped tour was coming to Canberra there was no question I had to go.
If for no other reason that we all need to support major acts coming to Canberra until they get back in the habit.
And yes there was a lot of nostalgia in the lineup.
So Friday rolled around, I [...]
