by | 21 Aug, 2010

Nick Payne has been in touch to let us all know that their gig, which was scheduled at well known Sydney blues and roots venue The Vanguard but had to be canceled at the last minute, is back.  A new date has been chosen and tickets are available for sale now.

The new date is Sunday August 29 and tickets are available online from

Dear Orphans feature Lyn Taylor and Nick Payne with the help of Mike Kirkley on Dobro and pedal steel, Richard Galuzzi on clawhammer banjo and Lindsay Mar on double bass. Door open 6.30pm with music starting shortly after 8pm.

The folks from Dear Orphans appreciate the support shown to them from the bluegrass community and encourage readers to come along and to especially consider booking a table for a meal. A strong show of support for Dear Orphans will encourage major venues such as The Vanguard to consider more bluegrass acts in the future Nick Payne.
