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 APRIL, 2015


Easter is upon us and I'll be hanging around the north coast for the weekend, hopefully the rain stays away (but then again it is Easter on the north coast).   I'll be  entertaining the good folk at the Kombi Bus Stop on Good Friday just around the corner at the Sawtell Caravan Park.  I'm looking forward to checking out some of the 90 plus kombi's descending on Sawtell for their yearly get together.

On Saturday 11th April, I will be doing the official local launch of my DVD/CD  "Live" At The Squatters Rest at the Sawtell RSL Club at 8pm.  I'll be performing all the tracks on the DVD plus a whole lot more, so for a good night of laughs, if you're in the Coffs Coast area, I'd love to see you.  It's a free show downstairs in the Norm Rowland Lounge, so come on down and pick up your copy of the new DVD.

I hope the Easter bunny is nice to you, catch you along the road.

Keep smiling,

ERROL
