T + S 2009 pt5 - Castlemaine Theatre Royal

Next stop for the Taro and Sangeet show after Wangaratta, we were lucky enough to be hosted by the Theatre Royal in Castlemaine, another historic gold-mining town in country Victoria. The backstage bed and breakfast was particularly note-worthy!

What a classic old place!

"To conclude with the extraordinary Terpsichorean Achievement
Mrs Gill will preside at the Pianoforte."

We were joined for the final piece for a jam with Philip Cheek. Philip and I played a lot together in the early days of EthnoSuperLounge - you can hear him on this page (tracks 3 and 4).

The Harry Potter room under the stairs. Taro ended up in here, something to do with feeling at home in a Tokyo-sized apartment...

Next stop on the Taro and Sangeet express, Melbourne...
