Event or­gan­is­ers are gear­ing up for next week­end’s an­nual Reg Poole Coun­try Mu­sic Con­cert at the Harston Hall to warm the com­mu­nity up af­ter the win­ter time blues.

The con­cert will be hosted by the Golden Gui­tar win­ner who will per­form old-time favourites with a sing-a-long or two.

Harston Me­mo­rial Hall com­mit­tee mem­ber Heather Stu­art said the con­cert would also in­clude guest artists Kim Ritchie, J R Wil­liams and John Mathew­son.

‘‘Kim en­joys en­ter­tain­ing her au­di­ence with a mix­ture of coun­try, gospel and rock, at times in­ter­spersed with a touch of com­edy,’’ Ms Stu­art said.

‘‘She has pro­duced a num­ber of al­bums . . . as a blind per­former, mu­sic is her life.’’

Ms Stu­art said J R Wil­liams had hosted the Vic­to­rian/Na­tional Coun­try Mu­sic Awards, broad­cast all over the coun­try.

‘‘John Mathew­son is a coun­try artist who comes from nearby Kyabram,’’ she said.

‘‘His reper­toire in­cludes old and mod­ern coun­try mu­sic and of course some 1950s and ’60s rock ’n’ roll.’’

Ms Stu­art said each artist would show­case their in­di­vid­ual style with the night promis­ing to suit all coun­try mu­sic fans.

‘‘Pro­ceeds go to­wards im­prov­ing and main­tain­ing our old-time coun­try hall of which the com­mit­tee are­most proud,’’ she said.

‘‘Come along and en­joy the night; we would love to see you there.’’

The con­cert will be held at the Harston Me­mo­rial Hall on Satur­day, Au­gust 19, from 7.30 pm.
