Event organisers are gearing up for this weekend’s annual Reg Poole Country Music Concert at the Harston Memorial Hall.
The concert will be hosted by the Golden Guitar winner, who will perform old-time favourites with a sing-a-long.
Harston Memorial Hall committee member Heather Stuart said the concert would also include guest artists Kim Ritchie, J R Williams and John Mathewson.
‘‘Kim enjoys entertaining her audience with a mixture of country, gospel and rock, at times interspersed with a touch of comedy,’’ Ms Stuart said.
‘‘She has produced a number of albums ... as a blind performer, music is her life.’’
Ms Stuart said J R Williams had hosted the Victorian/National Country Music Awards, broadcast all over the country.
‘‘Proceeds go towards improving and maintaining our old-time country hall of which the committee are most proud,’’ she said.
■The concert will be held at Harston Memorial Hall on Saturday, August 19, from 7.30pm. Tickets cost $20 and are available from Generations Op-Shop, 119 Hogan St, Tatura, or by phoning Sally on 0447581660 or Heather on 5854 8377.
