Autumn in country Victoria and the recent Burmese Orphans Concert

I've been spending some time in Bright Victoria working on songs with my cousin Katie Murray, gigging and rehearsing for my UK tour. Autumn is the most beautiful time here. The air is clear and cold (it's snowing up on the mountains today!) and the leaves are the most gorgeous orange, red, yellow and brown. The Ovens River runs through the town and it is one of the most beautiful rivers I have ever seen. We have been taking our instruments down to the water to play. So blessed!

I just returned from Sydney this week where we held our most recent Oprhans fundraising gig. It was a great night and in total we raised over $1100. Thanks to that gig and the past month of shows in Victoria, I will be able to send over $2400 to the kids this week! It is great to know what a huge difference these funds will make to the chilrdren at the Phaung Daw Oo Orphanage.

I am about to head back over to the UK to finish my new album very soon. I am really looking forward to that!! :)
