Shimbo Darktree New Catters in the last 2 months? (137* d) RE: New Catters in the last 2 months? 30 Oct 99


OK, I'll add my bit to the list.

My name is Ian Clarke. My nick was taken from a book
titled "Isle of the Dead" by Roger Zelazny - the sci-fi
buffs will know it (probably).

I am from Tasmania, Australia, and currently live in Brisbane
Queensland (also Australia).
My second job is as an accountant (that's the one that pays)>
My first job is folk singer (with guitar), and that's the
one that does NOT pay. I started singing folk in the mid
60's (hey, stop calculating my age!), stopped doing it
publicly for around 25 years, and have started again.
This happened because I was listening to a singer at a
resort hotel where I'd gone on business, and he noticed I
was watching his chords (settle down! I mean the ones he
was playing, not wearing). He asked me if I would like to
do a couple of numbers, as he believed it was the easiest
way for him to earn his crust. So I did, and realised how
much I missed the old folk clubs. Well, I have since found
an old-style folk club, and we run each Wednesday night.
Any visitors to Brisbane are welcome (no cover charge!)
and more info can be sourced from (and I'm not going to get
fancy here): http://tinpan.fortunecity.com/eltonjohn/168/folk.html
Hope that comes up right!
