Hi friends, its been a while since our last post. Time has a habit of steaming away from us at no less than light speed so please excuse the tardiness of our updates of the goings on in the world of Lady Valiant. We have a couple of pretty cool announcements that we are excited about. First of all we have been accepted in the 2018 lineup of the 21st Yackandandah Folk Festival. Awesome firstly because its not the easiest Festival to be granted entry into and secondly because its Marty's home town so we're heading back to play on home turf after quite a few years worth of applications and years interstate. Pretty sure it will be quite huge considering its the 21st anniversary, the lineup is already outstanding. Secondly we have been included in the lineup for the Australian Commonwealth Games Festival. Cairns will be hosting the basketball segment of the games and will be setting up plenty of other events over the games. We have a 7:00pm slot on the 7th April, main stage on the Esplanade, well worth a look!
Aside form this, we realize we have been raving on about the release of our debut original album for at least a year and with the recent news we have decided to nail down a deadline and finish our stagnant songs to align our album release with the Yack Festival. The pressure is now resting squarely on our foreheads and was perhaps the perfect incentive to kick our arses back into gear. We hope if not to see you at the Yack Folk Fest to be able to expose you to our new music inspired by our epic travels into the Deep South of the U.S.A, the birth place of the blues and the inspiration behind so many of our songs. As you know we usually play as a duo...the album however will be a far bigger and more sinister monster. Stay tuned... we look forward to sharing it with you all!
