3 Veterans of Country, Folk & Rock in 1 Big Night
Allan Caswell + Dave Skinner + Pat Drummond
KATOOMBA RSL CLUB
86 Lurline St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia
Allan Caswell, Pat Drummond and Dave Skinner have all enjoyed big on-going careers in music, are old friends and now all live in the Mountains.
Skinner and Caswell work regularly together and their special guest Pat Drummond has a history of touring with Caswell and even runs Shoestring Records who release all Caswell’s albums. Their concert together on Saturday April 5th at Katoomba RSL should be very special.
Allan is one of Australia’s most recorded songwriters with over 900 songs published and over 500 songs released worldwide. His biggest song “On The Inside “ from “Prisoner” reached Number 1 in Australia and New Zealand, Number 3 in the UK and made the US country charts. He is the winner of 6 Golden Guitars at Tamworth. He has played every state of Australia, New Zealand, New York, LA, Nashville, East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan.
2013 proved to be Caswell’s biggest year ever with at least one of his songs making the Country Music charts in all but 3 weeks of the year. At the recent
Australian Independent Country Music Awards (Southern Star Awards), Caswell won Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year.
Dave had a very successful career in England working in the studio and playing live with artists of the calibre of Chris Rea and Brian Ferry, culminating in touring the world as a member of UK superstar band Roxy Music in the late seventies. When he came to Australia on a Roxy tour he decided to come back permanently.
Since his arrival Skinner has been in demand as a record producer, musician and successful composer of television and film themes. Caswell and Skinner have been friends for over 30 years and have done hundreds of shows together and worked on each other’s recording projects.
Pat Drummond is an iconic, eccentric and much loved singer/songwriter who has made a huge impact on fans of country and folk music, all over Australia.
His loyal band of supporters have followed him from his hugely successful shows at the Rest Hotel in Milson’s Point in the seventies on a journey that has taken him to large and small towns all over the country. He is equally at home in folk music and country.
Drummond’s songs … witty, ironic, hilarious, thought provoking, angry and passionate are always beautifully crafted and are the fuel that drives his main career as a great entertainer.
These guys have spent their lives on the road and have played the biggest … and smallest venues imaginable and play music the way it was meant to be played … for the love of it … this is a show not to be missed.
Music from 8:30pm-late
