On 12 March 2020 when I arrived back in Tas from a tour with the Alaska String Band and ETE Covid-19 forced the cancellation of all the folk festivals and international travel stopped overnight.
The business of touring international performers comes to a sudden halt if there is no work and the bands can't get here.
It is now 2022 and limited festivals are coming back and some international artists are able to travel here.
I am effectively retired.
I may assist a band or two to work in Australia but the heavy concentration of clients is over for me.
In retirement the garden is looking to occupy a lot of time, in between golf games.
Thanks to all the people with whom I have worked and for the wonderful memories that will never fade.
Keep your eyes open for the odd concert or tour that falls my way.
