WELL-KNOWN GUITARIST AND VOCALIST Hugh McDonald is appearing at the Phillip Island Winery this Saturday, July 16th, for an ‘up close and personal’ twilight concert in our cosy, warm cellar door.
A multi-instrumentalist, Hugh is one of the hottest players around (and an engaging performer). He enjoyed a successful career touring Australia and the world with one of the leading bands of the 1980s, Redgum. He has since been a headline act at numerous concerts and festivals around Australia.
Redgum remains one of Australia’s best-known bands, remembered for the number one hit and Vietnam veteran tribute, “I Was Only Nineteen”.
Hugh wrote many of Redgum’s popular songs, most notably “The Diamantina Drover” which has since been recorded by Lee Kernigan, John Williamson, and Christy Moore, one of Ireland’s most popular singer/songwriters.
He is also a skilled record producer, arranger and session musician who has worked and recorded with many of Australia’s leading acts and soloists.
Phillip Island Winery’s resident musician (and winery owner) Tim O’Brien will also perform. Admission is free. A warm fire, five-star wines, delicious light platters and ‘up close and personal’ with Hugh McDonald, this Saturday, July 16th, 5:30pm – 8:30pm.
Where: Phillip Island Winery, Berry’s Beach Road, Phillip Island.
Time: 5:30pm – 8:30pm.
Admission is free, bookings accepted. Call: 5956 8465
