McClymonts set for Grafton gig
FRESH from packing out Yamba Bowling Club on Saturday night, Grafton’s favourite daughters have announced they are coming home.
The McClymonts – Brooke, Samantha and Mollie – will be performing at the Grafton District Services Club on Sunday, April 11 in what will be their final home-town concert before embarking on a major tour of the United States.
In what promises to be one of the biggest concerts ever held at the club, about 600 tickets will be available.
Club general manager Arthur Lysaught described the prospect of hosting the trio as ‘very exciting’.
“It will be the girls’ last chance to come home before they head to the US and the last chance for Grafton people to see them perform for some time,” he said yesterday.
“I had the pleasure of seeing them at Yamba Bowling Club last night and they were something to behold. They could well be the next Dixie Chicks if they are handled well in America.
“They are quite spectacular on stage – the concert is as good as I’ve seen in 35 years in the industry.”
The McClymonts’ album Wrapped Up Good reached number two on the mainstream chart and was last week bumped from the top of the Country chart by teen phenomenon Taylor Swift.
Their tour to the United States is aimed at cracking the huge American market.
Yamba Bowling Club supervisor Barry Wiseman said Saturday’s concert was ‘brilliant’.
“It was a great night,” he said. “The girls signed autographs for an hour after the show.”
