Hi Everyone,

The big news is all about some trips away with jim and other artists, firstly to NORFOLK ISLAND and later this year to FIJI !

FIRST things FIRST .... The Norfolk Island trip is a special experience.

Norfolk Island

I have done it twice before and this time Craig at Norfolk Island Getaways and Relaxaway has put together a FANTASTIC package which includes:

• a GOLD PASS to the Norfolk Island Country Music Festival featuring Catherine Britt along with myself, Amos Morris and many top NZ artists.

• a special tour to discover the fascinating history of Norfolk Island - the convict times, the Bounty descendants history and the very special culture and language of this unique place.

• a night of bush verse with myself and famous Norfolk poet ARCHIE BIGGE ... whose verse appears in my Big verse book.

• A special Jim Haynes Brekky with myself and others.


Everyone who visits Norfolk Island says it is a magical place !

The dates are MAY 16th to 23rd and if you book early we will send you a copy of BOTH the 'ABC Book of Australian Country Music' AND 'The Australian Book of popular Rhymed Verse' so you are well prepared for the CM festival and the Bush Verse evening!!!

You can check out details here or on Relaxaway Tours or 1800 272 122

Well Tamworth is behind us and what a great festival it was!

The Big Bush Brekky show had a new format and everyone loved it! Ashleigh Dallas and Melanie Dyer joined Rustling Russell to form a great trio and we had a lot more musical fun with some new songs and some old songs revived.

Darren carr and Dr Hans J Odderbitz were hilarious and I enjoyed doing some of the old favourite stand-up routines as well as the songs.

Now onward and upward with 2010 !!

PORT FAIRY MUSIC FESTIVAL  is coming up very soon -
 - and I will be there doing some Morning shows with Paddy Ryan and Peter Mace as well as some themed concerts and workshops with Paddy, Peter and old mate Dennis O'Keefe.

We are going to do a themed concert on AUSSIE RURAL HUMOUR  called 'The Real Dad and Dave' and evidently Dennis and I will BE Dad and Dave for the afternoon!!!!  We are also launching my new HUGE verse collection for kids and doing a workshop on the history of children's poetry.

• I am really looking forward to the MOUNT BEAUTY FOLK FESTVAL in the Snowies - 23, 24, 25 APRIL

and this year sees the revival of the QUEENSLAND COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS at the Charters Towers Festival 30th April - 2nd May....VERY EXCITING news that the QUEENSLANDERS will be back on the Country Music agenda with a  beaut new trophy in the form of those lovely old QUEENSLANDER houses!

• FIJI TRIP - How about joining myself, John Williamson, Jonah's Road and that lovable scallywag Ashleigh Dallas in FIJI in the first week of AUGUST?

It's a unique opportunity to see Fiji and have a GREAT HOLIDAY and also enjoy some great Aussie Country Music.
