A NEW performer made her debut on the stage of the Saraton Theatre, and after the experience, you could say she's standing three feet tall.

Tiggy Heart Eckersley wandered onto stage on Sunday night as mum Brooke McClymont sang ballad 'Shotgun', and after a quick cuddle, some harmonies with Aunty Molly and a pick-up by dad Adam Eckersley, she left to warm applause from the Grafton audience.

It was only the sideshow to Grafton's favourite singing sisters The McClymonts filling the Saraton Theatre to launch their days-old fourth album 'Here's To You and I' to an appreciative hometown crowd.

Brooke, Sam and Mollie, with an audience that spanned the generations of Grafton, opened with the first single 'Going Under' and took the audience through the songs of the new album, as well as their well-known back catalogue of hits.

"We wrote the album ourselves, about all the things that have been happening over the last two years, and the life experiences we've had," Molly said.

"There's even a special song on there about growing up as three sisters in Grafton," Sam said.

To add to the family feel, Brooke's husband Adam warmed up the crowd with a friendly banter and tight country sounds from the Adam Eckersley band.

"We're so appreciative of the support we've had from the town over the years," Brooke said.

"It's great to see everyone come out every time we come to town."
