The setting is 2008, Larry Roddy’s Castlebar Blues Festival in County Mayo, Ireland. Upon advice from his colleague Sinclair, Hat Fitz – a regular performer at Byrne’s bar – makes his way to Cara Robinson’s show at the TF hall and is instantly mesmerised. Likewise she also feels a strong connection, although it would be many hours of deep conversation before they realise that destiny has brought them together…

Back in Australia – Hat Fitz and Cara have recently finished recording their new album Wiley Ways, which has had the pleasure of being engineered and produced by the highly regarded Jeff Lang. The process of this has been to date one of the most enjoyable experiences either of them have had in making an album, what with banging bed pans, packing cigarette box pedals into old leather gladbags for that sought-after sound.

It has been a shared passion for their music that has moulded this album lovingly track by track. Now they want to share this personal experience of their scrawls and ramblings, which they have created late into the many early hours from their shed in the bush and long dark nights on the road, with the rest of the world. This dynamic duo is a unique combination that have skillfully combined their music of hill-style country blues with old-time folk, which has seen them become firm favourites on the international festival circuit. Their material is original yet crosses the boundaries as if written from a time once forgotten.

 

See them at the Currumbin SoundLounge, Friday.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Aged Care Fail

Our aged care system is broken. We didn’t need a Royal Commission to tell us that many of our old people have been abused by the system that is supposed to care for them. But now we have hard evidence that we are failing our elders. Some of the data that has been released is shocking. One in five residents have experienced sexual or physical abuse.
