A wonderful afternoon of country entertainment is in store at the Wolumla Hall this Sunday, August 6, when Peter Coad and the Coad Sisters are joined by Jim Hermel.

Peter, Virginia and Lynette Coad and Jim Hermel are all Tamworth Hands Of Fame inductees. This group continually tours throughout Australia performing at festivals, concerts and clubs from the heart of Sydney to the isolated outback.

Peter Coad has been a professional country music and bush ballad entertainer for over 30 years.  He has won many country music awards and was presented with an Order Of Australia (OAM) in June 2017. He has performed from the Sydney Opera House to the Birdsville races and is one of Australia’s most prominent songwriters, his songs being recorded by many Australian country music artists.

Virginia Coad is Australia’s number one female guitarist, but also excels on fiddle, mandolin, keyboard and vocals and is well known for her yodelling.  Lynette plays bass guitar, drums and is Australia’s top blues harmonica player. 

Their vocal harmonies are outstanding, and they have won many awards for their recordings and songwriting.

Hermel has toured the US many times, and has performed on the same show as Jerry Lee Lewis, been backed by Willie Nelson’s band, and recorded with Kris Kristofferson’s band.
