Foggy Mountain Jam - Jamtastic!

Foggy Mountain Jam was a huge success, packed with kids and great music.

The wines from Hope Estate were great, the food (with proceeds to Laguna Public School) was great and the music was jamtastic!

A highlight for me was Kasey singing a personal favourite and relatively unknown song (here anyway) - Bonnie Raitt and John Pine's "Angel From Montgomery" - I'll bet that isn't in the regular repertoire again, along with some other "farm songs" from the Chambers' family.

Add to that the classic, individual vocal power of Kasey Chambers, dad Bill's incredibly versatile string work on many instruments, Troy Cassar-Daley and Shane Howard's intricate guitar, vocals and melodies, Jim Moginie doing some lovely work (including Beds are Burning) and Shane Nicholson (alone and with with Kasey) is always magic.

The sound mix was perfect both from from the back of the crowd and from the "Oshkosh B'gosh" pit in front of the stage (many many kids)...

Thanks so much to Veronica and Nash Chambers for allowing us onto their place for this event and to everyone else involved.
