About

I am Peter J Casey.  I recently moved to Wagga Wagga, where I plan to divide my time among family, teaching, radio, and writing.  My background is in cabaret and musical theatre, and my devotion to songwriting is monkish.

This blog owes its existence to Nannygoat Hill, an excellent blog by the excellent Mike Lynch.

  2. Old friend of yours, bored, with nothing to offer you. Don’t call me.

  3. Hey Peter,
    I am working with Emma Dean, a Sydney cabaret artist I think you’d enjoy. Can you drop me an email and I can send you a digital copy of her album?

  4. Hi Peter,

    Was looking for somewhere to leave you a message after being at NFF today and specifically the ANZAC concert. I am really lost for words. It was wonderful..so many people young and old in tears. Thanks for being a great host for this special event. It is really a highlight for me after going to the NFF for so many years.

    • You are most kind, Dianna. It was a lovely, very moving concert.

      I feel like a cheat because now I can say I’ve sung at the National Folk Festival, with Margaret Roadknight and Eric Bogle, when my folk credentials are pretty much non-existent.

      All real credit to John Shortis, who can be showered with compliments (if you’ve not already done so) here:

    Hello Peter – I spoke to you the other Saturday at TAC, asking for a copy of your gay marriage song. How can we go about this? Cheers,

    Kerrie Roberts….

      Hi Kerrie,

      I have since thought about this, and here’s my game plan:

      1. Ask the lovely Canberra Gay and Lesbian choir if they’ve recorded my song, and if they would mind etc

      2. Ask the lovely Moya Simpson if she’s recorded it, and if she would mind etc.

      3. Record it myself if they haven’t.

      Send you whatever results.

      Pete

        Looking forward to whatever the result of the game plan is. I have heard Moya’s version and it is superb, and I’m quite sure you would do it well yourself.

    Hi Pete,
    Long time since we knocked about on the Atari or the streets of Cook … I still can’t play an instrument, much less hum a tune, but my kids aren’t half bad. Hope all is well with you.

    • Hi Michael!
      Yes, I should have kept that Atari – it would have street cred now, if not actual value.
      Glad to hear about your kids being musical. Mine are too, so we must be doing something right.
