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.

BACKYARD BLURB JULY, 2015

I've just come home from my daily walk on the beach and can report that the Great Pacific Whaleway is running on time.  Plenty of whales splashing around on their way north.  Also on their migration are the nomads (grey and not so grey) and I hope to catch up with some of them this weekend at the Lismore 4WD, Caravan and Camping show.  I'll be performing there friday, saturday and sunday along with my mad mate Ray Essery and a host of local Lismore musicians.

July is looking a bit quiet on the gig front, so I might sneak in a few little markets here and there.   Or if the weather stays as magnificent as it has been here on the Coffs Coast, I might just put the tinny in Bonville Creek and go searching for that big flathead.

Catch you along the road !

Keep smiling,

ERROL
