Dave Steel and Tiffany Eckhardt

Dave Steel and Tiffany Eckhardt are perhaps the most dynamic
couple in the world of Australian Folk Blues that you will ever
come across.
Both with exceptional talent and extraordinary careers, these
guys deserve to be better known. I've complied a few songs
and a podcast so you can do just that. Theres 4 songs each
and a dig radio podcast which you can read about here
In case you're wondering what these guys sound like I'll
give you a brief rundown and their myspace bios.
Dave Steel has had an impressive career starting out as
the guitarist for Weddings, Parties, anything before his
solo career. He has also worked with many others and
I've seen him play both solo and with Archie Roche many
times. The two photos of Dave are mine from Woodford.
He is simply one of the best blues performers this country
has produced.
Tiffany Eckhardt his partner is an fantastic folk, blues,
country type performer, but simply just fantastic
acoustic guitar based music.

Hi Tricky, you have to get an account first, then you'll need a torrent program. If you already know all about torrents then you'll know how it works. I'm not sure how easy it is to get an account and I'll warn you their a fussy bunch, everything is lossless, so they are big downloads.
The Neil torrent was a small one, only 389 mb, the dvds can be 4 gig.
