This week on Tony Hillier’s World of Music we feature bands appearing this weekend at the annual Cairns Festival
The festival has been going, in one form or another, since it was known as Fun in the Sun in the early 60s. There’s plenty of music on offer at the Festival this year, including Tony’s band Kamerunga, the Hot & Wet Swing Set and The Hillbilly Goats.
Mr Rabbit from The Hot and Wet Swing Set’s 2013 EP Speak Easy
Run Mountain from The Hillbilly Goats’ 2013 album Still In The Mountains Show
Queensland Whalers from Kamerunga’s 2012 album Worlds Kaleid
