Tony Cini’s 50 Years in Music

Thirroul, New South Wales, Australia, September 2017.
.

Before posting on Tasmania, here is a music event I was invited to last weekend.  This was a celebration of my friend Tony Cini’s 50 years in the music industry with four blues bands playing on the one night.

The drive from Canberra to Thirroul, near Wollongong, should have taken about two hours twenty minutes.  We left early and it was just as well we did because the highway to Sydney was closed due to an unseasonal bushfire. We quickly realised the traffic was going nowhere and it ended backed up seven kilometres for several hours.  However, we were able to do a U-turn, getting there instead along the coast via Goulburn and Nerriga.  This took five hours instead and we arrived just before the music started.  We did better than one Canberra guitarist who was unable to get through.  I found I was a bit tired to start with but all in all a great night.
