My latest album There Goes The Shiner is available at the last surviving record stores and online for downloads and streaming.

The album is a collection of original songs and instrumentals inspired by the John A. Lee stories about the colonial rouseabout Ned Slattery known as “The Shiner” who swagged his way around Canterbury and Otago in the South Island of New Zealand.

For more information about The Shiner listen to this reading by Tom Frewen (Chris Prowse provides the guitar) from John A. Lee’s book Shiner Slattery.
