Country loving is a lifelong commitment
A STRONG sense of community is important to Troy Cassar-Daley, who believes small towns know just how to band together and turn a negative into a positive.
And so when he was planning this next tour, he was adamant Mundubbera would be on the schedule.
“I insisted that we have a show in Mundubbera as this area has been hard hit of late and this is a small way we may be able to bring smiles back to their faces,” he told the Central and North Burnett Times yesterday.
“I have very great memories of Mundubbera when I toured there with the Blue Healer band in the early 1990s.
“We travelled around the country towns of Queensland and NSWand I am determined to do a lot more of those tours again.
“My country music came from the bush and I want to give it back to the bush.”
Growing up on the Clarence River in Grafton, Cassar-Daley (pictured) considers himself as a true River Boy.
His mother always played country music in their house and it was the start of the love for all things country.
“I have fond memories of growing up as a boy on the river, fishing and swimming every day.”
The Troy Cassar-Daley Show will be in Mundubbera, September 7, at the Town Hall.
The show will not just be a man on stage performing a mix of country songs, but a journey of stories of years gone by and the music that tells the tails of a life time of writing and playing music.
“It will be hard to be away from home on the weekend of Father’s Day, but my wife and children are always in my heart when I am away,” he said.
“I sing and perform as I do because I love it.”
