Byron Bay – Gerald Reports In


Gerald McNamara reports in from Byron:

“It’s gum boot city at Byron Bay. After a lot of rain over several days, it’s swampy enough to make Tony Joe White feel at home. 
Lucinda rocked the place with her great band last night.  Looking forward to Booker T and the DBT’s.
Highlight so far – Rodney Crowell’s encore last night – Poncho & Lefty. He’s played 2  great sets and really connected with the crowd who gave him an ovation that seemed to  surprise him. People loved him. He has great stories too. Especially those tales  involving his former father-in-law, the man in black.
Better get the gum boots on and get back there. 
Looking forward to more installments of your travel story.
