The Northern Rivers Community Foundation present their annual music fundraiser this Sunday with Pete Murray as the headline. The event follows on from last year’s amazing gig at Byron Bay Golf Club with international blues maestro Eric Bibb. Murray is joined by support act, sisters in song, Scarlett Affection.

Locally based, Murray is deeply connected to his community and is keen to see a portion of funds raised on the day go to NRCF Tony Narracott sub-fund, which was established to support the needs of local disadvantaged children and teens.

A former athlete, Murray shot to fame back in 2003 with Feeler, and since then he’s been a force to be reckoned with on the national scene.

The event will be held at the Bangalow Bowlo on Sunday from 12 midday. The ticket price of $120 includes a sit-down two-course meal and show. Drinks are available at the bar. There will also be raffles and auctions on the day.
