Friday’s 4 the locals

She’s our own Lil’ Fi

WP-LiFi4Lil’ Fi is one of the original roots music performers on the festival circuit today. Part blues, rockabilly, punk and jazz, all original, all Lil’ Fi – and now, our Lil’ Fi.

‘I live in the blessed hills of Uki,’ she says. ‘I moved here four years ago after the big fires in Victoria where I was living.

I looked at the waterfall map of Queensland, as this was where I wanted to return to, originally hailing from the great southeast of Bundaberg and Brisbane.’

Lil’ Fi says she looked at the highest waterfall and her choices were Uki or the Atherton Tablelands. ‘We had lots of friends from the northern rivers and decided that was where we would go. The very best decision I’ve ever made. I found a great community and the arts in this region are so inspiring. The people are kind and I have found my calling in playing music in many forms with a wide variety of fine musicians. Can’t love it any more.


Lil’ Fi is always playing around he traps but this weekend you can see her at Blues on Broadbeach.

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.”
