As The Hollies so wryly pointed out:

The Road is Long
With Many a Winding Turn…

We’ve been on the road for a while and now here we are by the pool in Byron Bay. Tomorrow Bluesfest 2013 begins. Over ninety artists, plus interviews, a quiz show and radio broadcasts, almost sixty hours of music over six stages and five days.
