Friday’s for the locals

Ash Bell has lived in the northern rivers for most of his life and in the Byron shire for about 20 years. Matt Bone also moved to the area about 20 years ago and never the twain did meet until 2009 when an argument over the tuning of strings led the lads down the Starboard Cannons garden path.

They had managed to avoid each other until fate had different plans and since then they have recorded an album, won awards and established themselves as a firm favourite in the Byron live music scene.

To see more of the Cannons visit their Facebook facebook.com/starboardcannons or www.starboardcannons.com.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
