One of our highlights for 2015 will be joining Black Train in Bennett Miller's Rumspringa installation at Splendour. Rumspringa is a time when young Amish people get to experience a bit of freedom outside the community. Geoff may have to reshape his beard for authenticity and I will need a suitable frock and hat. Many thanks to Kim McLean from Black Train for this exciting invitation.
Watling & Bates live in Unumgar in the Northern Rivers of NSW, where the mists hang low over rugged mountains and livestock graze upon green fields once covered by the Big Scrub. United by a love of Gothic mountain music, they present songs of death and pain, love and hope, marriage and murder. Inspired by the eerie howls of unseen beasts and the softness of horses’ noses, their original tunes draw on old time country traditions, swept by the headlights of passing trucks.
I GOT GOLD - VIDEO RELEASE
'I Got Gold' is the first video release from our Small Town Tales album, filmed in Ashford NSW by Watling & Bates.
THE ROOSTER HAS LANDED
Photos and video from our Small Town Tales album launch at the Eden Creek Hall 4th March 2018. Our exhibition curator Rebecca Tapscott was awarded Best Picture of a Chicken by popular vote, Jean and Graham Warburton (Couple No.1) won Best Waltzing Couple, and Adam and Lindee-Anne Flack (Couple No.2) were the slickest and snappiest dressers. Many thanks to our waltz judges Angela Dickson (Griffith University), Susanna Freymark (Editor, Richmond River Express Examiner), and Councillor Hayden Doolan (Kyogle Council). Grateful thanks to the Committee of the Eden Creek Community Hall for keeping this wonderful old hall full of life!
