WAY OUT WEST! DURING NOVEMBER!

November -in Cuttabri- near Wee Waa a long run but totally worth it! A great night was had by all-even George came- met some old mates- made lots of new ones! Some great people out West-salt of the earth! Saw the old Cuttabri Wine Shanty- a National treasure if ever I saw one! next time we go out-we'll spend more time! Hope they get some rain though- pretty bad out there- But off to Tamworth today-into Studio tomorrow- to record some more songs for the Celtic album! Hoping we can get it done next year in time for a 2019 release! but my year has been tough- due for my knee surgery soon (hopefully) -sick of being an old crock?  Luv Norma xxx

The Celtic Connection and our family history.

It surely is a strong one! my Mothers family were The Hungerfords, a very influencial family in British History. Much to my surprise ! our illustrious ancestors built a Castle known as (Farleigh  Hungerford Castle) back in 1370 .Sir Thomas Hungerford built this medieval Castle & its a long story but they lived there for over 600 years off and on. ! Some of them fought with the Kings at the battle of Argincourt, some of them followed Cromwell & met their demise! Sir Thomas was the very first speaker of the house of commons in the British Parliment! It is a very colourful & well documented history. It is described as the most significant Medieval Castle in England as it is at Somerset ,the actual family crypt contains the marble effigys of the two Original Hungerfords! And I do intend to research it well & put a lot of it into songs & poetry. Another big project! but one I will relish!

George & I on Emu Beach on Kangaroo Island! during our South Oz tour- -April 2nd- looking back on this photo now George has grown a lot! he was sooo tiny here he looks so small!
