THE BACKYARD BALLADEER
From his home base in Sawtell on the north coast of NSW, singer/songwriter and teller of tall stories, ERROL GRAY travels Australia with his one man show THE BACKYARD BALLADEER. With his acoustic guitar, stompbox, harmonica and a distinctly Aussie sense of humour, ERROL has his audience cracking up with songs and the occasional bush poem about everyday situations that happen to us all.   With song titles like WORKING FOR CENTRELINK, THEY WONDER WHY YOU DRINK,  JUST LET IT RIP  and TURDULENCE (The Dreaded Bedpan)  I'm sure you get the idea. 

Scroll down the page and have a look at the video which will take you to ERROL'S YouTube page where you can check out some more clips  and if you like what you see and hear, you can even buy a CD or two.  If you have any queries just give ERROL a call on the number below or shoot him off an email.

BACKYARD BLURB SEPTEMBER, 2016

It was great to be back at the Gympie Muster last month with the mad Muster Poets kicking off everyday with a laugh in the Crowbar.  I caught up with a lot of old friends and met a stack of new ones.

Springtime is festival time and I'll be performing at quite a few this year including Bony Mountain, Milmerran Camp Oven Festival, Mary Gilmore Festival at Ariah Park, Slim Dusty Memories Week and the Leeton Roundup.

I've got a couple of special shows in the Hunter area this month. On September 10th I'll be performing all morning at the Walk for Hope to raise money to provide services for people with Hunginton's Disease at Speers Point Park in Newcastle.  Then on sunday 11th, I'll be the guest artist at Sunday Country at the Kurri Kurri Workers Club from 1pm with host Donnie Soper.  Tickets for that show are $10 at the door.  Love to see you there.

I've had enquiries from new car owners without CD players if I have my music available on USB sticks.  I'm pleased to say that I can now provide this service.  I have put all 7 of my albums on to one USB stick for $50 and they are available at my shows or by calling me on 02-66532845.
Catch you along the road !
