Thanks to all those who supported the recent CD launch and fundraiser.
The event raised over 2100 dollars and the money was directed to the Gaza Strip through Union Aid Abroad Apheda.
Thanks to all those who cooked, cleaned and made the night happen.
I will shortly join US songwriter David Rovics for a series of solidarity concerts in Adelaide, Canberra, Newcastle, Wollongong, Brisbane and Lismore. For venues times and booking information http://www.philmonsour.com/philmonsour_shows.html

For the Brisbane show only, Jon will join me on the djembe and Graham on the acoustic guitar for a new acoustic trio experiment. I am currently negotiating with the backing singers in the hope they may join me on the night.
Other upcoming shows include one in Cairns at Crate59 on the 19th of September. More details soon.
