Despite having a really busy month, with the help of our friend Chris we recorded some wee home videos. She lives in a gorgeous house with a brilliant garden. The Spring blossoms were bloomin’ up a storm.

Silver Tongue & Gold Plated Lies was written by K. T. Oslin – country stalwart songstress, although we learned it from Suzanne Thomas on the excellent album “O’ Sister – The Women’s Bluegrass Collection”.

We play it slow.

More like a blues song than a bluegrass number………

We recently traveled to Beechworth Victoria for the 2015 Kelly Country Pick,  whenever we go on a road trip I take photographs. I always put a few on Instagram & Facebook, it’s become part of the journey for me. The images feed into the songs we write, themes emerge. With Chris’ encouragement I thought I might begin to share what we see when we head off for gigs or Festivals.

I have always thought in pictures and struggle to think of words to describe…… stuff

We weren’t booked to play at Kelly Country, which is just as well given how horrendously sick we both were but the guitars didn’t get dusty……………

We’ve been writing songs for a new album and played one of them the other night at the Mountain Pickers Association. It’s a really lovely song we called “Lay Down My Ole Guitar”, one of those magic songs that feel as though they write themselves. We were so incredibly lucky that Angus Golding recorded it for us and that Emily Dittman took a great live photograph so we put the two together and made a wee video. I (Jen) was worried it’d be too boring with a static image but it’s kinda lovely to just focus on the music, we played pretty well and it’s a song we’re both really proud of. Now we’re really looking forward to recording again……….

We joined the Mountain Pickers Association this year and have really enjoyed the monthly meets at Burrinja on the first Tuesday of the month. We’re meeting some lovely people and hearing some really great music, an absolute pleasure! It’s a real privilege to have a sit down audience who listen with interest and courtesy, it’s a wonderful space to get our music out there into the world.
