Queensland Tour, Adelaide Gigs and Little Lion Man single.
I am excited to announce that The Beggars are making our biggest Australian tour ever, three weeks of concerts in Queensland through November and December. With 14 concerts taking in pretty much every big town from Cairns to Brisbane. The Tour is called Australian Songbook and all the dates are on our Gig Calendar page. As well as Stuart, Renee and Quinton [me] the show will include Andrew Clermont on the fiddle. This tour presents a special challenge for me as a double bass player. Because for the distance and the regional nature of the tour I will have to put my bass on the plane, which is a first for me and a bit scary. Usually if the tour is centered on a big city I can hire a bass on the ground. My new flight case is enormous and hopefully bullet proof.
Our new single Little Lion Man is The Beggars cover of the Mumford and Sons hit. Its one for the first production out of my Tuneworks studio and its up at iTunes now.
