Karingal Appeal Launch Concert

The wonderful Eddi Reader is the guest of honour at this month’s Karingal Appeal Launch Concert. Born in Glasgow, Reader found fame with acoustic pop outfit Fairground Attraction. Although a short-lived band, they had a monster hit with ‘Perfect’. She released her tenth album, Vagabond, in February. All funds raised will assist in the building of The Eastern Geelong Community Centre, a new inclusive space that will provide recreational, social, cultural, economic, community and health benefits for people in the Eastern Geelong region. Reader: “I am honoured to be an Ambassador for the Karingal Appeal. Community and education are close to my heart, and I believe totally in inclusive practice, ensuring arts, education and community programs are available to all people with and without a disability. I have researched with great interest the work Karingal has done over the past 62 years, and it is a real privilege to be associated with an organisation dedicated to enriching people’s lives through support, advocacy, partnership and choice. I hope you join me and support the Karingal Appeal to raise funds to build the Eastern Geelong Community Centre, and be a part of my final concert on my 2014 Australian tour.” Tim McCallum will also perform, while ABC’s Hilary Harper will host. Deakin’s Costa Hall @ GPAC – June 25.
