Graham Connors - Pioneer Village Petrie

Another Sunday afternoon concert, this time Graeme Connors
who hails from North Queensland.
His songs often refer to North Queensland and his themes
are very Australian, often funny and very clever his songs
reminded me of Redgum often, through with a very Queensland
take on things that reminded me of Grant Mclennans North
Queensland imagery.
Dubbed a country and coastal artist, Graeme's songs move effortlessly
across genres ranging from folk, pop and contemporary to country.
The Band was great and Graeme's one of those songwriters that
loves to tell the stories behind the songs, something that I appreciate.
He was at the last Woodford Folk Festival, not on the day I was
there, but I would have liked to have seen that.
You can check out his stuff at his website Here
