    FREE SHOW: Rodney Vincent and Wayne Horsburgh.

Ararat Christmas concert today

Long-time friends Rodney Vincent and Wayne Horsburgh will team up at Ararat Town Hall today to present a special Christmas event.

It will be the town hall’s final free lunchtime concert of the year. 

Vincent and Horsburgh will present a fun-filled show of country music, comedy, story-
telling, yodelling and even 1960s rock ’n’ roll, with a special appearance from Santa.

Ararat Rural City Council chief executive Tim Harrison said the lunchtime concerts were always a hit and invited everyone to head along to the final gig of the year and get in the Christmas spirit.

Horsburgh has won many awards and has been inducted into the Tamworth Country Music Festival’s Roll of Renown.

Vincent was voted Victorian Country Music Entertainer of the Year in 2006 and has toured with household names such as Col Elliott, The Four Kinsmen and The Delltones. 

He has also been special guest on five of American rock and roll legend Gene Pitney’s Australian tours.

Both were inducted into South Australian Country Music Hands of Fame at Barmera Country Music Festival in 2011.
