Bello boy back in town

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

BELLIN­GEN-bred and na­tion­ally renowned singer-song­writer Jack Carty has been named the first of­fi­cial pa­tron of the Bello Win­ter Mu­sic fes­ti­val.

“Hav­ing grown up in a small town be­fore mov­ing to the city and div­ing head­long into a world of in­de­pen­dent artists, the two con­stants in my life so far have been mu­sic and com­mu­nity,” Jack said.

“I can’t think of a bet­ter ex­pres­sion of that than Bello Win­ter Mu­sic – a col­lab­o­ra­tion with, and cel­e­bra­tion of, the com­mu­nity I still call home even af­ter years of trav­el­ling.

“I am hon­oured to be pa­tron for 2017 and look for­ward to the friend­ships, col­lab­o­ra­tions and dis­cov­er­ies it’s bound to bring.”

Mu­sic di­rec­tor Glenn Wright said the pa­tron is some­one who rep­re­sents the cor­ner­stones of the fes­ti­val: com­mu­nity, col­lab­o­ra­tion, dis­cov­ery and great mu­sic.

“We in­vited Jack Carty to be the first pa­tron of Bello Win­ter Mu­sic be­cause of his strong con­nec­tion to Bellin­gen, his mu­si­cal in­flu­ence in the com­mu­nity and na­tion­ally.

“He’s a truly in­spir­ing lo­cal mu­si­cian who con­tin­ues to de­velop as an artist in an al­ready im­pres­sive ca­reer.”

Jack will per­form daily at the fes­ti­val and par­tic­i­pate in the men­tor pro­gram.
