July Programme & Special Guests
July 1 – Special Guest Carmel Charlton (8 pm – 9 pm) presents THE GREAT RIDE based on a letter from Carmel’s husband’s great-uncle Trooper Ned Moriarty to his sister Alice in W.A. In 1918 Palestine, the Australian Light Horse commenced a pursuit of the Turks all the way to Damascus. The presentation includes songs, dialogue and images that illuminate the struggle, emotion and humour and life the troops went through during the 12 day ride which was led by the Western Australian 10th Light Horse Regiment. Banjo Paterson was also involved in The Great Ride as a remount officer, looking after the welfare of the horses. Carmel, an accomplished WA singer, songwriter and musician, has presented her show to enthusiastic audiences in that state as well as venues on the east coast including the National Library in Canberra. Comments include: ‘Carmel held us spellbound.’ ‘One of the best (presentations) I have heard. ‘Exceptionally poignant and polished.’ ‘I was enormously impressed (and) could not have enjoyed myself more.’
Don’t miss this rare chance to hear Carmel, on tour from WA where she runs Jackadder’s Music Club.Her voice is strong, compelling and beautiful; her versatility and stories relating to the songs completely engage her audience. www.carmelcharlton.com

Pete backs himself on guitar with his ‘very lazy finger-picking’.
