Sunday saw some of the Bluesfest big guns roll out – Jackson Browne played a massive one and a half hour set as did Melissa Etheridge – neither disappointed the legion of punters pressing against the barriers to see them.

Ash Grunwald was blistering on Jambalaya – Ash filled the stage with a horn and rhythm section and a pearler of a guest spot from Kasey Chambers who lifted the lid on the tent.

As would be expected, The Cat Empire went totally off – it’s too easy to see why this band is a Bluesfest favourite.

Jerome ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton played his third of four shows and you would be absolutely mad not to catch his last show today, this dude is phenomenal!

The Boomerang Dance Ground has plenty on offer, Rosealee Pearson was one of the many artists in the Healing Tent where she wove her magic for those gathered in that space.

There was just so much juicy goodness and today promises more of the same!

Last mayoral candidates Q and A: are you a landlord?

Here at The Echo we have seen and heard the word ‘housing’ come up time and again throughout the local government election campaign period, whether it’s from candidates or other voters.

On the ground work assists evicted women 

We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.

What do the Tweed Council candidates stand for?

The final day of voting for your local Tweed Shire Councill candidates is Saturday 4 December at a venue near you.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
