Third place winners of the 2014 X Factor season, Brothers 3, will be at the Forbes SES Fundraiser Concert on Sunday. The concert is hosted by the Forbes Country Music Club and held at the Forbes Services Memorial Club at 1.00pm. After the recent flooding in and around Forbes, the hard work of the Forbes SES and volunteers did not go unnoticed. The Forbes Country Music Club decided to organise this concert to raise much needed funds for the local SES branch.
The concert features a range of artists for all ages with Brothers 3 the main act. They are in the middle of producing their new album and recently completed a national tour of 13,000km. Michelle Little, originally from Dubbo and
based in Sydney, has a beautiful voice combined with a Patsy Cline style of music and songs. James Norton loves Aussie folk songs and old time country standards on his banjo and harmonica. He was the first person to win two awards in the same year at Tamworth’s Golden Harmonica Championships.
Helen Begley, a Melbourne singer-songwriter, has travelled Australia playing to audiences in country towns and capital cities, in venues as diverse as concert halls at folk festivals, rickety stages in Tasmanian forests and iconic gig rooms in inner city Melbourne Local entertainers will also be in action on Sunday with Charmaine Pout, Rustic
Charm & Co and Rosie Yapp. Charmaine is a radio announcer on 2LVR Community Radio and has performed at many Country festivals and concerts.
Local band Rustic Charm & Co have performed at many charity events and other establishments with their own style of Country Rock and Rockabilly music. Rosie Yapp has won at many talent quests in Forbes and Parkes. Many raffle prizes to be won on the day, kindly donated by local businesses. Admission is $10.
