Thanks to all the admin and tech staff and to the 900 or so patrons attending The Beggars Sing The Seekers last week at the beautiful Empire Theater. The place is an absolute treasure and it was out great pleasure to perform there.

This week we played concerts in Townsville and Mackay with Quentin Eyers filling in for Stuart Day on guitar, mandolin and vocals. Well I was a little apprehensive would Quentin be able to learn all the harmonies, words and arrangements, would he be overwhelmed when he saw the size of the stage and the spotlight hit him? I didn’t need to worry Quentin did a fantastic job the crowds loved him and the only tricky thing was getting use to touring with someone who has almost the same first name as me. Thanks to the folks in Townsville and Mackay for a great little tour of North Queensland.

This week we are presenting two different shows, SING on Tuesday morning in Sydney and The Beggars Sing The Seekers on Friday night in Dubbo. First time for The Beggars in both cites and I am hoping we get a warm welcome in Sydney which is my old stomping ground and Dubbo which I visited a few times when I was on the school touring circuit.
There has been a date change to our SING! tour of Victoria with April 18th at the Thornbury Theatre cancelled. Our only Melbourne concert is now on Sunday 19th. The full list of current tour dates and links is below:
