Gianna’s 60th birthday party …

Whew, what a weekend! After the fundraiser at SANDFLY, we went to SANDFORD the next day! And well, our new found Italian fans sure know how to party! A cold call from the birthday girl resulted in us being welcomed as though we were Gianna’s guests for a fun filled afternoon of music, dance … and refreshments! She made sure that family and friends did not sit around for too long, or else they were seconded onto the dance floor.



Buttongrass Ball at Wesley Hall

We shared this annual event with the Reggie Button Sidestepper’s (aka Ross Smithard and friends?) with odd-socks David Wanless keeping the dancers well and truly up to speed.




Daffodil festival

Another of our annual gigs, we battled the elements to entertain the crowd at the All Saints Church Daffodil festival in South Hobart. One of the perks was the complimentary wine (thanks to Owen – but next time can we have it mulled, not chilled!)




An instructional visit by Fred!

Our esteemed founder Fred Pribac joined us for an evening of new and old tunes, challenging us with different techniques, arrangements and lots of ideas to develop in the future.



Huon Valley Hoedown

Arranged by an enthusiastic local identity, we played tunes at an idyllic hillside retreat near Glen Huon all evening, and Sarah Lewis even managed to corral them out of the rain to kick up their spurs and tighten their bibs & braces.
