G'day Music Lovers,
Country Open Mic Night
The recent Country Open Mic at the Atherton CWA proved to be very popular.
Lots of our old regulars like Bill, Tom and Sue, Lyn and Kevin, Ralph and No Requests played,
with some new faces like Sue and Matty kept everyone entertained.
Everyone seems to enjoy themselves and the new venue.
Thankyou Dave and Lyn for organising it and Nicole for being MC .
Also to the house band who supplied an awesome rhythm section to accompany some of the
artists who performed. If people are interested in having more of these nights please let us
The Yungaburra Sessions night also went well with Toshi, Bruce, Ben, Mic and Bron
performing. It was an eclectic mix of talent organised by Dave Kinmonth. The Tablelands Folk
Fest folks hosted the event with the support of TML and the Eacham Hotel.
Toshi gave a soulful performance showing us some raw emotion along with his beautiful voice
and guitar playing.
He was followed by Bruce who showcased some songs from his new upcoming musical “Blood
On The Frets.” Bruce is an excellent wordsmith with plenty of humour and accomplished guitar
Ben Banjo Wilson was next and gave a sizzling exhibition of banjo playing and singing.
A truly great artist, you should try and catch Ben when he’s performing next.
The night was finished off by the professional Mic and Bron from Mangrove Jack.
By then the crowd was on its feet dancing and hollering for more, more.
Don’t miss the next Sessions at Eacham Hotel with TFF and TML.
Thank you to Shane Knuth
TML would like to say a big thank you to Shane Knuth’s office for photo copying 25 scripts of
Bruce’s new musical Blood On The Fretts. We estimated that the value was more than $500 !!!.
Shane has been a big supporter of the club over the years and TML really appreciates the
support that he has given us.
