COUNTRY legend Troy Cassar-Daley will perform in Cooma next month as part of a tour to raise funds for the Rural Fire Service (RFS) in the wake of the recent bushfires.
He will be accompanied on Thursday March 21 by special guest - and Cooma local - Cameron Cusack.
It will be Troy's first performance in Cooma since 2009 and will be at the Cooma Ex-Services Club.
Troy is always one of the first to offer his support for the major fundraising events performing at Queensland's Flood Relief Telethon concert, Sound Relief Melbourne, Toowoomba's Spirit of Australia concert and just in the last few weeks at the Country Relief show in Tamworth.
He is also well-known to personally get out and assist the flood and fire affected folks in both his own community and further beyond, travelling to bring his own brand of comfort to Victoria, NSW and other disaster effected areas.
"After what has been a challenging summer for so many people, I'm looking forward to getting out and meeting some of these people in person," he said.
"If my music can bring some joy to those people who have been struck by disaster, that's the very least I can do.'
"I'm thrilled to be bringing my band and the show to Cooma, Merimbula and Bateman's Bay. These three towns have all recently had bushfires come through.
"We'll invite the local RFS in each town to bring some tins for gold coin donations on the door.
"We'll be donating some money from ticket sales to help with fundraising. We are also organising a guitar that I'll sign and we'll raffle off at the end of the run.
"This will be on display at our merchandise stand with raffle tickets on sale for $5. It's all about raising money for the RFS folks out in the community."
