GOLDEN Guitar winner Maurice Hardy is touring the Clarence Valley.

Performing songs from his expansive repertoire, which includes self-penned tracks, traditional covers and ballads, the talented singer/songwriter will be on stage at Grafton Shoppingworld today between 9.30am and 1.30pm.

With his acoustic guitar close by and the companionship of loving wife Vandra Green, Maurice says he is enjoying his time in our local area. He said the best thing about travelling with his music is meeting people while touring.

"We definitely meet a lot of people while we're on the road," added Vandra, who accompanies her partner and manages his merchandise stall.

"There has been a lot of interest in Maurice's CDs and DVDs from locals."

Each time he performs, Maurice sings a variety of country, rock'n'roll and a few pop numbers mixed with his own songs. He said he loves the audience's reaction when he sings a new song.

Maurice is also encouraging aspiring musicians to never give up and believe in themselves and in what they do best.

"Don't ever give up," he said.

Tomorrow Maurice will perform at the Yamba Bowling Club at 2pm.
