Darwin band worldfly

One of the best things about touring is meeting new people and this week I met Jarren Boyd the drummer from amazing Darwin band worldfly. I wanted to share their web sites with you as I think they are brilliant and you might too!!! Go to: www.worldfly.com.au and www.myspace.com/worldfly to check out their sounds! :) If anyone has any music recommendations, please send them to me via the comments or the contacts page. xo Rebecca

Northern Territory/Orphans Concert and Album release

Hey Folks!

I have had an amazing and busy month since I last wrote. The days are flying by...I feel like I am in some kind of vehicle with the scenery constantly streaming past! Even when I'm stopped I feel like I'm moving! Maybe it's like the feeling you get when you get off a boat; you are on land, but you still feel like you are on water! Maybe it's something to do with living in a caravan. I guess it's not surprising when I have travelled over 8000 km's on the tour so far!!

I have spent the past month in the Northern Territory with quick fly by Melbourne for the wonderful Kilmore Celtic Festival. It was my 7th year at the festival and I absolutely love the energy of the people there, the music and, believe it or not the weather! Which, mid-winter, was below 5 degrees and it even snowed about 10 mins from the festival site! It was bizarre to go from 34 degrees in Darwin to 4 degrees in Melbourne in one day!

My son came up to join me on the tour and we spent three weeks in Darwin and also out in NE Arnhem Land which was really great.

The gigs have been going exceptionally well. Since March, $5500 has been collected in one small tin for the Burmese Orphans! This week we have our fourth concert for the Orphans at the Happy Yess in Darwin on Saturday 31st July. That's this Saturday night! Please tell your friends in Darwin to come along and support this event, so we can send a whole lot more money over to the kids!!

In the next two weeks we are finalising the album cover and getting it ready for release! Thank you to all those who have purchased the album and are waiting so patiently for it to arrive!!

The East Coast Album Release tour starts on the 30th September and winds up in Sydney on the 8th November! Look forward to catching up with you folks at a gig somewhere (see gigs below) and please forward the Darwin Orphans gig info to anyone you think might be able to help out or come along!

All the best in all you do!!
Till the next update...
