MORNING MELODIES - JAMES BLUNDELL

ICONIC Australian Country singer songwriter, James Blundell, is this year celebrating 30 years in music. In 1986, Blundell decided at the eleventh hour to submit an entry into the prestigious Star Maker talent quest at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. The judges saw past his hand written biography and witnessed a super star in the making. He was green, he was nervous, but once he opened his mouth and sang - the judges knew there could be only one winner - the charming young cattle hand from South East Queensland with that voice. At 11am Thursday, April 26 at Brolga Theatre, 5 Walker Street Maryborough. Cost: $13 - $15. Phone: 41226060, email: brolga@frasercoast. qld.gov.au or go to: ourfrasercoast. com.au.
