Izzy’s birthday brought more flooding rain. Been a lot of it this year. So Friday 18th was spent on the Hill in The Cottage. All 4 offspring of Iz and Chick rang in with Birthday Greetings . Izzy was determined to bake his own cake for Sunday at Ilnam Estate winery and did so. Smelt so Good Hot that Chick and Iz ate it. The rest of the story is yours in pictures.
IZZY FOREAL AND VARIOUS GUESTS – CAFÉ VIBES
Izzy Foreal performs his semi-acoustic ‘21st-Century Skiffle’ music every Saturday night at Jamieson’s Restaurant in West Tweed, ably assisted by assorted guest musicians and cohorts. Izzy has an impressive musical pedigree, but it perhaps most infamous as the bass player and vocalist with Sydney comedy-rock band The Zarsoff Brothers.
On Mothers Day at the Ilnam Estate Winery Izzy will be joined by Dave (‘The Bloke’) Ovenden, mandolinist and frontman for contemporary Australiana exponents Bullamakanka. ‘The Bloke’ and Izzy also play together in semi-acoustic outfit Paspalum as well as The Bob Dylan Song Book Band, which appears the first Sunday of each month at the Bilambil Sports Club. Izzy was also bass player with Bullamakanka in the early 1980s, and he and ‘The Bloke’ played together in the seminal 70s comedy-rock band The 69ers.
On Mothers Day at Ilnam Izzy and ‘The Bloke’ will feature Paspalum’s percussionist Chris ‘The Boss’ Fieldo, with a possible guest appearance by Pete Lawson (also from Paspalum and Bullamakanka).
