Leading up to Xmas, we had three enjoyable Saturday mornings playing outside Mathers House, as part of a series of events and entertainment sponsored by the Hobart City Council (a big thank you to the events team)
We played for the Folk Federation’s Buttongrass Ball on Friday, 9th October. It was the annual fundraiser event for the NTPA, being our first public gig since Covid-19 appeared. Much playing while sitting at a distance for the dancers, sanitising for all, but it worked well, had a good crowd and much enthusiasm for a good cause.
The band travelled down to the Channel district to play for a family bush dance, which was called by Sarah ‘twinkletoes’ Lewis.
The band, as is customary, again descended on this quaint country town that hosts Tasmania’s premiere folk festival. We were welcomed at a popular eatery where we entertained the passing crowd from their courtyard (thus enabling us to keep our hats on in the howling gale!)
