Concert roping in star power for SES
THERE will be nothing short of music legends touching down in the region for the upcoming Whitsunday SESions benefit concert.
Fans of authentic Australian music will flock to see James Blundell, whose infectious enthusiasm is one of the many reasons he is one of the most recognisable and likeable artists in Australia.
His empathy for the “average working man” will resonate strongly with those who suffered a significant blow as a result of Tropical Cyclone Debbie, which struck the Whitsunday coast a little more than a month ago.
On stage, Blundell will have no shortage of material to work with in light of his many years of success following his 1992 song Way out West, which brought his music to mainstream attention.
He has a long list of achievements, including being the first young country Australian act to sign a major record deal in Nashville and also taking home CMAA awards, reaching double-platinum, platinum and gold sales figures, as well as being a five-time ARIA Award nominee with one win to his name.
His latest album Campfire was launched at this year’s Tamworth Country Music Festival and the consensus is that it delivers exactly what the audience wants.
Also riding high will be fellow country music icon Graeme Connors, taking his 60 Summers tour across Australia.
With an outstanding 40-year career to his name,
