A Paul Kelly album release is not complete without a tour. His most recent albums have included the Bluegrass inspired Foggy Highway, the extraordinary Chad Blake produced Ways and Means, and the new album Stolen Apples, due for release 7 July 2007.

From very early on in his career, Paul Kelly has been recognised as one of the most significant singer/songwriters in the country. Inspired initially by the likes of Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Lou Reed and Ray Davies, Kelly's narrative song writing is infused with wry observations, bittersweet emotions and enormous appeal.

Jindabyne Soundtrack won Soundtrack of the year at the Aria Awards
October 11th 2006
Best Original Soundtrack/Cast/Show
Album Category for this year's ARIA Awards
Paul Kelly, Dan Luscombe, Katie Brianna & the Stormwater Boys - Jindabyne Soundtrack - (Capitol/EMI) 'Jindabyne Fair' is on radio now! Katie went to the ARIA'S 2006 'Fine Arts awards" before the big ones later in the month. Last year Katie recorded the song Paul Kelly wrote for the movie (he's done the music for it!).
The Australian film, 'Jindabyne' (directed by Ray
Lawrence), opened in cinemas on the 20th July.
The Australian film Jindabyne was shot in Australia's Snowy Mountains and is the film
adaptation of Raymond Carver's novel So Much Water So Close To Home. It
stars Laura Linney, Deborra-Lee Furness, Gabriel Byrne, Leah Purcell and
John Howard (the actor).
The Waifs - Paul Kelly
summary note Courtesy of Bill Aldacushion - http://CountryMusic.Travel
Thursday, August 03, 2006: The Waifs returned to the stage tonight for the first time in over a year since becoming new mums. To do so, they traveled several thousand miles with their 10 month old sons to the legendary Birchmere music hall in hot, steamy Alexandria, Virginia USA. And they did it in style with a solo guitar/harmonica player by the name of Paul Kelly as their opening act….yes, the opening act! What a double treat for all in the nearly sold out venue.
The Birchmere doesn’t allow photos during shows, and the artists did not emerge afterwards. So, here is the only photo record of the evening.
As the lights went down, Paul warmed up his fingers, as he said, with the melancholy “They Thought I Was Asleep” from Foggy Highway. He apologized for not having the rest of The Stormwater Boys with him as he later played two more tracks from their latest CD: “Song of the Old Rake” and “Down to My Soul.” His set also included such standards as “How to Make Gravy” and a new song titled "You're Beautiful, 39, and You're Mine."

After Paul sang the tragic “Everything’s Turning to White,” he announced that the song was based on the Raymond Carver's short story "So Much Water So Close to Home." This story now is the basis for a new movie in production to be called “Jindabyne” for which Paul was asked to write the musical score.

The Waifs seemed a bit nervous being front of a crowd for the first time in a while, but immediately got into the groove of their music and energetic performance style. After the first number when the audience burst into applause, the girls remarked, “Never thought we would miss that sound so much. Thank you. It is so good to be back.”

Halfway into their set, Paul Kelly joined them on banjo as The Waifs delivered a spirited rendition of the song he co-wrote Kev Carmody, “From Small Things, Big Things Grow” …a very special moment in the show.

Donna later told a story about how they felt like they “used to be famous” during their hiatus. While shopping at a convenience store, Vickie paid a clerk who was wearing a Waifs’ t-shirt … “nor a hint, not of glimmer of recognition,” she lamented. One other announcement during their set was that while Donna and Vickie took time off to make babies, Josh spent the time making instruments. He played his beautiful new acoustic guitar, electric guitar and ukulele during the show.

The Birchmere sports a wall of fame with photos of the most famous artists who have appeared there. As the show ended, Donna yelled out, “Having Paul Kelly as an opening act is unbelievable. Now that we have done that, we deserve our picture up on the wall too!” The standing ovation from the crowd seemed to indicate that they agreed.

Tonight was the first stop of a multi-week North American tour, where Paul Kelly and The Waifs will appear together at clubs and festivals in several US states and the Canadian province of Alberta. See their websites for details:
