We sit down with Mark Lang from Melbourne's Skipping Girl Vinegar backstage at Bluesfest in Byron Bay.
Following up on what was a huge opening night for Byron Bay’s Bluesfest, Day Two’s program offered another fantastic line-up. Jumping between a variety of folk, blues, rock and soul acts whilst trying to avoid the downpours of rain across the night, Thursday was certainly an eventful day for the festival. From quality local acts including the lovely Skipping Girl Vinegar to special international Bluesfest regulars such as Ben Harper, the program presented us with endless opportunities to enjoy a superb array of musicians.

I knew it was going to be a good night for two reasons. One was the two-for-one cocktails I was enjoying on a rooftop bar over looking the City skyline and the other was knowing I’d see Skipping Girl Vinegar play again. It had been almost a year since I last saw them live and since that the group had released their long awaited second album Keep Calm, Carry The Monkey.
