Aussie sisters set to rock
Renowned country sisters prepare to put on a show in Proserpine
SAMANTHA McClymont of The McClymonts has taken her hat off to the people who have ensured their gig in Prosperine goes ahead this week despite serious damage to the Proserpine Entertainment Centre.
Due to the devastation caused in March by Cyclone Debbie and the subsequent closure of the Proserpine Entertainment Centre, The McClymonts have confirmed they will still visit Proserpine on their Endless national tour this week.
The show by the Grafton sister act will go ahead at the Proserpine RSL.
Proserpine had been doing it tough and the celebrated singers/songwriters are more eager than ever to get to Proserpine and give back to the decimated community to instil hope and support the region that is still very much in the midst of rebuilding.
Sam said her nan lived in Townsville and the sisters were not strangers to North Queensland but they had never before visited the Whitsundays as a band.
“We’re are so happy that they still want us and the show is going on,” she said.
Sam said she was disappointed to hear of the devastation caused by Cyclone Debbie and was prepared to do everything possible to aid the Whitsundays in the recovery effort.
“We are not the ones that have been through it, we can’t complain,” she said.
“We are just really looking forward to getting up there and looking forward to an awesome Sunday arvo.”
For real fans of the country music starlets Sam asked people to bring souvenirs that the band would be more than happy to sign at the end of the show.
The McClymonts are widely recognised as Australia’s best country group and throughout their 10-year career they have released four studio albums which have achieved two gold sales accreditations, 10
Golden Guitar Awards, two ARIA Awards and a Country Music Association US Award for Global Artist of the Year.
