Ian Blundell returned to the stage

ON STAGE: Local Tumut performer, Ian Blundell returned to the stage to perform over the two days of the Adda-Long Day Music Bash and was a popular artist.

IAN Blundell was one of the performers at the inaugural Adda-Long Day Music Bash held last weekend at the Royal Hotel.

Following a foot tapping, sing along performance during Sunday afternoon’s sessions he was thrilled with both days and the artists that had been on stage.

“This is good to see, it’s been fantastic” were his first comments when asked how it had been.

He said there are few and far between music festivals like this these days, but it is great that Cec (Petersen) and Al (Gaff) has put this on for the whole weekend.

“And this will definitely be an annual event – they will definitely do it again next year,” Ian said.

“I have absolutely enjoyed this weekend.

“I come from Tumut, born and bred in Tumut so am a local, but I live at Grahamstown now.”

Ian has been performing for many years but said he had been out of the music circles for a long while and it has only been the last 12 months that he has got back into performing.

Ian went on to say he has retired but had been working at one of the local timber mills.

“I love music though and both my daughters are singers as well, I am hoping they will get into singing again as well,” Ian said.

Ian played a few old-time favourite covers as well as a couple of his original songs during the Sunday performance.

And it is no doubt that he will be a regular at the pub for the Sunday Music sessions and at next year’s Adda-Long Day Music Bush.
