Greetings heartlanders,

Storms have been cracking over head unleashing curtains of rain, You’d think it was the Top end, but this is Djabwurrung country in Western Victoria where unprecedented high temperatures, electrical storms and torrential rain have closed out spring making us wonder what the summer will bring.

Firstly a big thank you to all the faithful who came out and supported Neil over the last few months at his shows in SA, NSW and Vic. There are just three remaining gigs in victoria’s south west ( Dec 8th, 9th and 10th) before Neil hangs up the guitar for a bit.

UPDATE: Tjungukutu project

We are pleased to advise that Sammy Butcher - although incapacitated in his right hand - has been able to make contributions to more tracks in recent times ( Thank you Jeff Mclaughlin in Tennant Creek for facilitating this). We are hopeful of being able to bring this project to completion in 2018.


Since the last newsletter, we can confirm that Neil is performing in Spain on January 17th for the Australian Studies Conference at the Barcelona University.

On his return to Australia Neil (accompanied by Damien Neil and Rachel Taylor) will headline the Newstead Live Music Festival from Jan 25-28th.

Feb 2nd will see him at the Red Velvet Lounge, Cygnet, Tasmania followed by an appearance with a four piece band at the Riverboats festival in Echuca on Saturday Feb 17th.

March is bookended by the Cobargo Folk festival and the Lake Bolac Eel festival. Get your tickets early folks!

Neil has commenced demoing and recording guides for some 15 songs that will contend for selection to form a new album. Recording of beds and rhythm tracks for the songs will take place in Melbourne in the first few months of 2018. We’ll give progressive updates as we go forward.

Reminding everyone, that the 32-track compilation “Hindsight” is available for download through iTunes. The CD version is available at Neil’s shows or through his website.

Keep it all lit folks

John King
