It’s the title of the show – Presumably because it was written by a British guy and first put on in England. I don’t know!!!! I just follow blindly!!!!!!!

A special beginners harmonica workshop coming up at Curtin’s Statesman Hotel promises to get you playing the pocket-sized instrument in a single session.

“You’re playing simple blues riffs within the first 15 minutes and walk away with a solid foundation to develop your playing,” says workshop presenter Tony Maguire, also known as ‘Mouth from the South.’

Sponsored by harmonica manufacturer Hohner, the session is called Introduction to the Harmonica and runs 11.30pm-3.30pm on Saturday February 3.

And Mouth from the South will be showcasing his full-tilt playing skills to a Canberra audience a couple of weeks beforehand at The Statesman blues jam mid-afternoon Sun January 21.

Maguire got the ‘Mouth from the South’ tag when he lived and played ‘harp’ in the Northern Territory, where his playing can be heard each Saturday as the inro to a blues radio show beamed out of Alice Springs.

Most recently he’s played with Missing Button, Keith Armiger Band and blues guitarist-singer Steve Flack in Sydney in tandem with running the special workshops in the NSW capital, Melbourne and now the ACT.

There are 20 places available at the Feb 3 workshop. Cost is $125 including lunch, practice CD and a gleaming new Hohner Silver Star harmonica.

Enquiries: or phone 0402 388742.

LG, can you tidy up for the confused among us – why’s it “The British Musical”? Wouldh’t the story of Peter Pan, by definition, be British?

Plump DJs are at Academy on Friday night. Quality international acts don’t come ’round that often. Probably just watch the cricket though.

Not really canberra or weekend – but I have to brag about the 1st ODI at MCG on Fri which Mrs Danman and I will be attending – just behind members so should be good yeah

Living in Waterford Jey, don’t even worry about the Reds. It’s the Bronc’s you’ll need to pretend you know about – most Logan residents have only a vague notion of “that other code”, union.

Jey Jey 12:52 pm 11 Jan 07

Thanks Simto, I expected it was union.

The Reds would be the Queensland Rugby side (former home of Wendell Sailor and frequently defeated by the Brumbies).

NFSA has Bette Davis being tarty to Henry Fonda in “Jezebel” this Saturday, at 8:30 in the courtyard of the archive – tickets $8.

For those of you with sproglets, or people who like pirates, fairies and girls dressed as boys, Phoenix Players presents “Peter Pan: The British Musical” (as compared, presumably, to Peter Pan the Estonian musical) from 12-27 Jan. Tickets vary from $20-30, with performances at all kinds of odd times.

Oh no, the heat’s getting to him. Weekend tip for Thumper: stay indoors, no cricket for you my man!

Jey Jey 11:40 am 11 Jan 07

awww Thumper, that’s sooo cute!
I’ll still be posting lots and visiting Canberra often.

I’ve always gone for the Maroons since I was little because my Pop was born in QLD.
The ‘reds’ though, are you talking about a different sport? Union perhaps?
‘Scuse my ignorance but I don’t really follow these things.

Thumper Thumper 11:36 am 11 Jan 07

Fairwell fair Jey!
Lo! for Riotact shalt miss thee,
like the polar bear misses seal blubber
and rooted salmon, the sea.

Like a bus misses a stop,
or a kangeroo misses its hop
but though thee go to QLD
A Riotacter thalt shalt always be…


Now, that is woeful!

terubo terubo 11:34 am 11 Jan 07

Jey, I’ll come dressed as a pompous UQ scholar. BTW, you won’t be supporting the Reds, now will you?

Jey Jey 11:31 am 11 Jan 07

Jey’s farewell party!
