Cartoon of the week – June 19, 2024

The Echo loves your letters and is proud to provide a community forum on the issues that matter most to our readers and the people of the NSW north coast. So don’t be a passive reader, send us your epistles.

Residing among the lush greens of the Nimbin Valley, local band Gently Red brings you an exciting combination of folk and rock.

Beautiful home-grown lyrics from the heart infused with groovin’ guitar rifts, smooth, sensual and sexy, Gently Red’s songs are stories of the heart, of life journeys and moments of truth. Through music they want to express the riches and discoveries of life as a humble human on planet Earth.

genlty-red-LisaTheir intent is to keep music alive – living, breathing and reinventing itself in each moment, bringing back a little bit of soul to our digitalised world.

See them this Sunday October 27 from 1pm, Sphinx Rock Cafe, Mt Burrell.
