Flying Engine String Band, Post Office Hotel, Coburg, May 14th 2010

Craig Woodward's Flying Engine String Band is the latest incarnation of popular old-time string band Headbelly Buzzard who held the Friday night residency at the Railway Hotel for 14 years. Flying Engine comprises: Craig Woodward (banjo/fiddle), Brett Leppik (Banjo-mandolin), Jono Wilson (shoe-string guitar/ and shoes!), Liam Wratten (banjo), and Jeremy Hanley (double bass). The Post Office Hotel has been recently refurbished and is a pub with a Fitzroy feel -- polished wooden floors (great for dancing), rough hewn red-brick walls with crumbling grout, tall tables and a great courtyard. Flying Engine are hoping to play regularly on Friday nights (see local gig guides for details). In the meantime, here's some footage from Friday's gig. I'll be posting an interview with Craig Woodward in the coming weeks.
