Russell Morris at AmericanaFest in Nashville September 2016
Australian music icon Russell Morris is releasing his award-winning album Sharkmouth in the U.S.
If you are at the Americana Festival and Conference and you attend any of the Australian events such as the Aussie BBQ you can get some free Melbourne Music – sponsored by the Melbourne City Council.
Just grab one of our Melbourne Music dropcards, visit the website, enter the access code and voilà (or as we say, Bob’s your uncle!). I have a few with me, so if you see me loitering around Nashville, just ask me for a card. Australian readers don’t fret, Addicted To Noise will have some for you when we get home.
