Part two of tag-along 2017 – From the Murray to the Outback

Part two covers from Melrose to Silverton.

 

 

 

 

 

 

After three fun-packed days in Nuriootpa we headed through some beautiful country to the little town of Melrose situated at the base of Mt Remarkable.

It was certainly picturesque.

John O’Dea

 

 

 

 

 

 

As was Graham's practice throughout the tour, all artists gathered together on stage for a fifteen-minute finale.  This practice proved very popular with the audience and always resulted in a very vocal request for an encore.

This was our one and only more formal night for the tour.  Jeans and joggers were replaced with collar and tie and we could not have chosen more beautiful surrounds for our formal dinner.

 

Tables set for dinner

 

All spruced up for the special night

 

The smiles say it all

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A good time is being had by all

 

 

The job of a recording artist is never ending

No matter what was happening, a bit of tom-foolery was never far off

Concert number six, a very special night for Trevor as he launched his
first EP

Spin producing some of the entertainment with a verse of bush poetry

 

A very special guest artist for this concert was “Roberta”.  Her sweet voice and unbelievable beauty set Graham in a spin as he fell madly in love with this angel

Jimmy’s Welsh heritage came to the fore as he added to the mix

 

Alfie

 

A little bit of Graham's Scottish heritage comes to the forefront

 

 

 

Concert number seven was held in the beer-garden at the Silverton Hotel.  It was one of those days when the sun shone, the sky was blue and you were just very happy to be where you were.

 

Silverton is definitely a real icon of the Australian outback and it was a day everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

As the smiles indicate, a good time was being had by all.
