Tour – August 2000

NSW/VIC & SA Tour with Pat Drummond.

Once again I have recently had the chance to do some more touring with Pat. This time it was off to Orange once again, then a gig in Hay and on to the Mildura Country Music Festival once again. Being once again nominated for Awards here it was a great week and it was wonderful to again sing on the Awards night, but the highlight was watching Pat being presented with the “Independent Entertainer of the Year” Award. No independent artist deserved this award more than him, believe me I know! I have seen how hard he works both on and off stage. I was so genuinely glad his talent was finally recognised. With our heads buzzing, we headed across to South Australia, and following school shows in Loxton (and a visit to the Big Orange!! – but we just couldn’t resist) and a wonderful gig for the small but warmly welcoming community of Karoonda we continued the trek down to Encounter Bay where we had a great gig and crowd turn out.

After once again visiting Morpeth Vale and some surprise guest spots from Geoff Drummond and Craig Byrne, it was on down the “Coorong” (the amazingly beautiful strip of land that runs down the coast of South Australia to Victoria) to Mt Gambier for a great gig and chance to meet the famous Highland family (behind Pat’s song “In the Grain”). Then it was once again time to head home, this time however through the spectacular “Grampians” Mountain Ranges, the river town of Echuca and a another nice gig at Whitton (once again catching up with friends) and then on home to the Blue Mountains. Once again a great experience (even though I really missed my wonderful hubby), from the simplest of things such as the golden fields of Canola to the Rich red sand of the Perry Sand Hills with their paddy melons growing on the dunes – this is one hell of a beautiful country! Once again my thanks to Pat, my true friend, and my special understanding man Marty – I am such a truly lucky girl!.
