TRIBUTE TO GARY SHEARSTON www.garyshearston.com.
A CELEBRATION OF THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF THE AUSTRALIAN FOLKSINGER
"The word 'legend' is used freely in the music world, but few could be more entitled to its use than Gary Shearston." (Ian Dearden, Trad & Now).
"...songs that feed the soul, challenge the mind and do the heart all power of good" (Anna Rose, Northern Daily Leader).
For more than 50 years, GARY SHEARSTON sang songs of peace, social justice and love, with a background of the Australian landscape he loved.
A celebration of the life and music of the iconic Australian folksinger will be held in his home town, Tenterfield, at the Tenterfield School of Arts on Thursday, August 1, at 7pm.
Many of Gary's songs - including his worldwide 1974 hit, I GET A KICK OUT OF YOU - will be performed by LUKE SHEARSTON, BONNIE SHEARSTON, with The RING-INS' ROGER ILOTT, LEE WILLIAMS, JORDY DAVIES-ILOTT, plus TERI WELLES, CLARA BARRS, and DAVID & SARAH HUME.
The musical tribute starts at 7pm. There will be drinks and nibblies served throughout the evening.
