Illawarra Folk Club Inc.  NEWSLETTER - May 2011


The Borderers (SA), The Do Riders 7.30pm Friday 6 May CITY DIGGERS WOLLONGONG Members $15, Non-Members $20 The Celts hit Wollongong on Friday 6th May when iconic, multi award winning Celtic Band, the Borderers take the stage at the City Diggers as guests of the Illawarra Folk Club. They’ll be joined on stage by quirky Bluegrass Novacastrian Band, The ‘Do Riders’. It’s a 7.30 pm start with of course, the mystery muso kicking off the show. Those strange and lost souls who come to folk club concerts to have a sleep have no chance on Saturday Night. You won’t need black coffee to keep you awake with these two great bands hitting their straps. Multi-Award winning Scottish / Irish / Australian band The BordererS formed in 1994 and have released 8 albums, 4 EP's, 2 kids albums and been included on 31 compilation albums all around the world. The Borderers became a band by accident when Jim was backpacking in Australia in 1993 as part of a round the world trip. He says: “I was just visiting South Australia to meet a friend when I got invited to a recording studio to hear this band. I loved their sound so much that I

eventually coproduced the album, married the lead singer” and bought a house in Adelaide


Lead singer, Alex, was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland and came to Australia in 1987 and lists Annie Lennox and Joni Mitchell as major influences. Jim was born in Glasgow, Scotland and arrived in Australia on Christmas Eve 1993 and is influenced musically by AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Status Quo and Talking Heads. The Borderers run their own indie record label – Celtic Records – which to date has combined sales of 68,000 units. This indie approach paid off recently when the band won the Independent Music Award in the US for “Sinner and The Saint” in the Gospel Music category. The song now goes out to 11 million people via Borders Bookstores and The Borderers are well known performers at many of the world’s top music festivals having played Byron Bay Blues & Roots, Port Fairy Folk, Edinburgh and Womad Festivals in Australia and the UK – as well as touring Canada and the USA. They’ve also supported artists including Tom Jones, The Proclaimers,

Voted Best World Music Act At the Musicoz Awards!

The Do Riders play blurgrass, a

contemporary bastardisation of bluegrass, oldtimey, alt-country and folk. This Novocastrian and Bulahdelahian foursome all sing, play double bass and mandolin (both home-made), ukulele, guitar and banjo, and a trumpet. They are focussed on stuff that is (at times) oddly selected, perhaps a little lyrically odd and is able to be danced to drumless. As one punter recently opined – 'The Do Riders are utterly joyous, even when exhibiting occasional

domestic disharmony'. They clearly enjoy themselves."

Folk Concert The Sublime and The Ridiculous

Now let’s deal with Fred

Smith first.

“It is about time Australia caught up with Fred Smith. This remarkable singer-songwriter – who at various times reveals influences that range from Paul Kelly via Lou Reed to Loudon Wainwright III to Leonard Cohen – keeps releasing amazingly accomplished albums. In tune with the times and prepared to reach

beyond predictable folk formats, he is endlessly innovative and creative. He is also very funny.” (Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald). Fred has recently returned from 18 months in southern Afghanistan with collection of songs for his forthcoming album Dust of Uruzgan.

Those who heard his songs about the war in Afghanistan rated them the best since Eric Bogle’s ‘And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda”.

in a water tank. Martin plays the fool in B sharp. Martin is a very funny satirical performer. He has been amusing, even thrilling audiences around the globe for ages now, and if you haven't seen him live - you're missing out. Martin tickles the funny bone. The act is full of scintillating satire and all round gut busting hoots. In common with great comedians like Connolly, Jerry Seinfield and Bill Cosby, he has an ability to take current events and observations of everyday life, and turn them into side splitting comedy routines. A performer of renown and a singer of some notes. Martin longs for serious recognition in much the same way as a flatworm longs for Reeboks. He can on occasion, and in the true folk tradition, sing songs so maudlin that audience members may attempt to end it all by throwing themselves into a pint of Coopers. The mystery Artist will kick the show off and the full facilities of the Diggers Club are available to guests.

Illawarra Folk Festival Update Planning is underway for the 2012 festival to be held 12-15 January.

(in the style of CJ Dennis) © Zondrae King (Corrimal) 09/07 ‘They dragged me t tha city. Told me “otherwise you’ll die a slow and painful death” they sez. “Well save me then.” sez I. See it’s me art wot’s playin up n givin me the stick. They put me in the ospital, to fix it up real quick. It’s globs o fat wot’s bunchin up and cloggin all me veins. They fix it with a wire, just like cleanin out ya drains. The Doc comes in. Well strike me pink, e looks just 12 year old, an nursie says “Now you lie back and do wot you are told”. This Doctor kid’s Chinese I think or maybe e’s Malay. I wish e wouldn’t grin at me and rub is ands that way like e’s preparing dinner, or to carve the Sundee roast. If I cud see a mirror I’d be whiter n a ghost. At least e talks Austra’n good. I ear each word e sed.

“Don’t worry now.” e says to me and pats me on the ed. The operatin room is next, the wardsman wheels me in. There’s lights and screens and dials n Doc is gowned up to is chin. They ooks me up to their machine and things start going ‘ping’. It’s scary, like a UFO, and me ooked to the thing. They ad me in this dressin gown wot opened down the rear and paper knickers, what a laugh, around me weddin gear. Next thing I know e’s pokin’ in a tube right thru me vein then squirtin in some magic dye n pulls it out again. E points a finger at a screen n slowly rubs is chin. Examines all the wiggley lines n sez, “We can begin.” “Ah There’s the spot!” e tells the nurse o wears a gown and mask. But wot e tries to show er I don’t ave tha nerve to ask. “Aah, some sedation here I think” e says to er. Well gee, if e needs some sedation, I ask, wot about poor me? “A stent ill do the trick” e sez. Well what’s a flamin’ stent? It helps tha blood flow to yer art. It’s like a wire tent. A wire tent stuck in me veins. “Well strike me roan,” sez me. “Oh don’t you worry now.” E sez n pats me on tha knee. They place the stent n press it out and I don’t feel the best. It’s like a flamin elephant is standin on me chest. They use a scale from one t ten t elp describe tha pain. Well blow their numbers. I doh wanna feel that crook again. They tell me this ere doctor kid wots lookin after me is ed Prafessa of the eart at Uni-vers-atee. This stent e put inside me is like some macramé thing except that it is made of special wire ‘stead a string. E knows is job and es the best so I need ave no fears cause after e is done I’ll last another 20 years. I’m feelin much more like meself n back in me own digs. I’m glad I didn’t need them valves they’re transplantin from pigs.

<> <> <> <> <> As a staunch republican I was disgusted that there was nothing to watch on Tele on the night of the Royal Wedding. I went and played computer games. I didn’t get invited either, but neither did Barak Obama and Sir Blue the Shearer. Anyway Sir Blue has put it in perspective. ROYAL WEDDING I check my mail box daily, in keen anticipation, Waiting to receive our Royal Wedding invitation.

They must have misdirected it. Or it’s been lost in the post. I thought they might have asked me to propose some Royal toast. We were looking forward to it. I had even cleaned my shoes. Lots of special tucker, and a fair amount of booze. Rubbing shoulders with the hoi polloi. Hobnobbing with the Queen. We’ve heard Kate is a commoner, so we’d fit in with the scene. I’ve had my share of disappointments. Not named Father of the Year. Never made it to the honours list. Now once again, I fear That I’ve missed the Royal Wedding. That’s a dreadful thing. I would have loved to homagise a maybe future King. I’m not good at forelock tugging. I’m a little short of hair, But I’d bow and scrape in Aussie style, if only I were there. And I’ll miss out on the souvenirs. The plates, and cups and saucers, They’re even selling droppings from all the royal horses. That should make your garden grow in all its Royal glory, Won’t it be exciting? Just like a fairy story. William’s long experience as a Royal should see him through, But Kate, being a commoner, will she know what to do? There’s going to be a lot of pomp. I checked on my computer. Kate might need some lessons from a qualified pomp tutor. Was Geoffrey Rush available? He cured one with a stutter,

Working with the Royals seem to be his bread and butter. I know that William’s happy to have chosen such a mate, But when the marriage knot is tied, will she still be known as Kate? They might want to call her Katherine. It has a Royal ring. And the state of Kate, as William’s mate, just doesn’t have that zing. The guest list is astonishing. Everyone is there, Except of course, yours truly, but really, I don’t care. Royalty, Governor Generals from every Commonwealth Nation, Billionaires, and actors, as befit their special station. There are surprise omissions, like Santa and his Elves, And certain sporting figures who can’t behave themselves. They’re going to do it on the cheap. The Brits are short of moolah, So it’s sausage rolls and frankfurts, like they had down at Dimboola. That’s not true. I made it up. The whole world loves the Royals. The wedding will be perfect. Let’s hope nothing spoils This special Royal Wedding. A spectacle to see. I wonder if there’s something else to watch on our TV. <> <> <> <> <> Woodford Folk Festival copped a nightmare with the weather this year. The Queensland Floods decimated the crowds and the festival had, what every festival organizer dreads , a major loss caused by things over which there is no control. Moreton Bay Regional Council however has come to the rescue and purchased the Woodford site for $4 million dollars. In a press release, Mayor Allan Sutherland confirmed the purchasase price:-“We’ve paid market value for the iconic site to guarantee the longer term future of the Woodford Folk Festival and the economic benefits it brings to the Woodford township and the region,” Sutherland said that this will see the Folk Federation take out a 50-year lease over the Woodfordia site. A 50 year lease for any folk festival including our own really gives organisers a security that can guarantee its long time existence. <> <> <> <> <> For the Potes.

(played with acoustic Shock, Karen Lynne, Liz Frencham and many other bands in the Illawarra). Wondered where he was and had an email through the week about a major concert at Aranmore Hall, a bluegrass/folk venue at Leederville near Perth. The support Artists were Rachel Dillon, Quentin Fraser and Stephen Loss. I figure Quentin may now be in WA and of course Illawarra Folk will remember Rachel Dillon who played at the club recently. <> <> <> <> <> Janet Andrews [mailto:janeta@wollcon.] from the Conservatorium is organizing Illawarra Sings as part of the June Music Festival. She writes to say that they now have a registration form available for the Illawarra Sings workshop and/or the combined choir on our Conservatorium website: . Go to the Illawarra Music Festival, click on ‘Illawarra Sings’ and ‘Registration’ The combined choir rehearsals will probably be on Tuesday and/or Wednesday evenings 6pm-7pm.

This is the first time she have been asked to highlight at an international festival, and though it is great honour she says it is highly nerve raking! The festival runs from the 31st of August to the 4th of September. Our best wishes for a successful festival go with Lilli. <> <> <> <> <> Rachel Flannery (Emma Hannah’s Daughter} works for a company that is government funded to offer small & home based business free information - about how to promote their businesses using the internet. The project is coming to an end in May so it’s last call for applicants. It’s free and all you need is an ABN. Might be a great opportunity for people who are launching CDs, DVDs etc to get into a bit of knowledge on the internet. Visit http:// online-training-and-self-help-dvds and read about the program. <> <> <> <> <> Finally had a phone call from one of our regulars, Barry Sexton who told me that the range of an accordion was only a third of that of an autoharp. I didn’t know of course but he explained that with a good throw an autoharp had a range of 45 metres while an accordion only had 15 metres.
