Gary was a unique Australian singer and songwriter.
I was privileged to see his unforgettable performances at the Troubadour and later at the folk festivals after his return from the UK. Most recently we saw him at the Harp, still as good as ever.
He was able to hold an audience spellbound with his stories and songs of peace and love.
Gary captured the true spirit of the bush in his songs reflected by his upbringing in Tenterfield.
Farewell to a legend, we sure will miss him.
