Australian Gothic masterwork “Riverina Kid”

The singer-songwriter, now based in the Hunter Valley, is known for his powerful and mesmerising live performances. Respected Australian music journalist Iain Shedden, of The Australian, recently described Crighton’s Tamworth Regional Art Gallery appearance in glowing terms: “Once in a lifetime a gig surpasses all expectations, slapping you in the face with its grace, majestic singing, the quality of the material, and, in this instance, the acoustic ambience of the venue… [it] demonstrated music's power to stir the heart and soul. In my all-time Top 10 that one.”
