He’s the ‘‘gentle giant of Australian country music’’, but to people of the Harston area, Reg Poole OAM is one of their own.
The multiple Gold Guitar winner will return ‘home’ for a country music concert at the Harston Hall on Saturday, September 21.
Reg, along with guest artists Peter Denahay, Olive Bice and ‘Steve and Hillary’, are set to get feet tapping when they hit the stage at 7.30 pm.
Committee spokesperson Heather Stuart said Reg had assured the committee there would be a great variety of music and some good old-fashioned country humour.
She said representatives of the Harston Hall Committee recently attended an informative and helpful evening hosted by Greater Shepparton City Council.
‘‘The occasion was the launch of the new Committee of Management and Administration Handbook, designed to assist committees within the municipality in management and running of their facilities,’’ Mrs Stuart said.
‘‘It was a great opportunity for local members to meet with, and to hear what other committees around the area are involved in.
‘‘With this in mind, and to assist with the running of the hall, the committee is excited to once again present a night of country-style music.
‘‘The concert has proved so popular that it has now become an annual community event,’’ she said.
Tickets are $20 a person, which includes a ‘‘country-style supper’’, courtesy of the Harston Hall Ladies Committee.
And if past events are anything to go by, this is one concert not to be missed, even if means just getting your taste buds around the bountiful supper.
Tickets are available at Tatura Community Opportunity Shop, 177 Hogan St, or phone Iola on 5854 8265 or Heather on 5854 8377.
