Our talented BUMS performing members, Donna and Derek Farrell, of the duo Totally Insane, featured this week at Neill Florence‘s launch of his new novel “Out of the Shadow”.
This book is the sequel to Neill’s first novel, “The Pursuit of Happiness”.
In period costume, Donna and Derek performed a themed set at the launch of Neill’s first novel.
The couple so delighted the audience, that Neill invited them to help launch the second book in his trilogy about a German family’s migration to, and life within, Australia in the late nineteenth century.
The author, and former high school principal and English teacher, is also a ukulele player. Neill performs with Donna and Derek’s group CHUMS that is based at Compton Gardens, Aspley.
