THE BACKYARD BALLADEER
From his home base in Sawtell on the north coast of NSW, singer/songwriter and teller of tall stories, ERROL GRAY travels Australia with his one man show THE BACKYARD BALLADEER. With his acoustic guitar, stompbox, harmonica and a distinctly Aussie sense of humour, ERROL has his audience cracking up with songs and the occasional bush poem about everyday situations drawn mainly from his own experiences.   With song titles like WORKING FOR CENTRELINK, THEY WONDER WHY YOU DRINK,  JUST LET IT RIP  and TURDULENCE (The Dreaded Bedpan)  I'm sure you get the idea.  As well as his own cultural gems, ERROL  can knock out some great versions of  Aussie classics from John Williamson to Cold Chisel.

Scroll down the page and have a look at the videos and have a listen to some snippets of ERROL'S songs and if you like what you see and hear, you can even buy a CD or two, and if you want to know more about ERROL just give him a call on the number below or shoot him off an email.

BACKYARD BLURB JANUARY, 2015

Happy New Year to one and all, I hope you got through the silly season in one piece.
I'm just gearing up for the annual pilgrimage to Tamworth and it looks like another busy week coming up.

I will be performing most mornings at the Poets Breakfasts at the Longyard and at Sam Smyth's Poets Breakfasts at The West Tamworth Bowling Club Function Centre (just behind the main club).
Norma O'Hara Murphy has asked me to join her at the Dag Sheep Station out at beautiful Nundle on friday 23rd at 11am.  I've heard a lot of great things about the Dag, so I'm looking forward to playing there.

My main show, and only full 2 hour show for the festival, is my DVD launch at the West Tamworth Bowling Club Function Centre on saturday 24th at 2pm.  You're all invited, tickets are available at the door or from the venue during the week.  You never know who will pop in and join me onstage.

I've got a few other little appearances here and there through the festival, so check out the guide for details.

After Tamworth I'm popping up to Queensland for Australia Day at Caloundra RSL at 1.15pm
Keep smiling and see you in Tamworth !
