2018 Blue Water country music weekend: James Blundell at Shoal Bay Country Club

Shoal Bay Country Club was a hive of activity on Saturday night.

Hundreds turned out to the hotel to watch Australian music legend James Blundell perform as part of the Blue Water country music weekend in Port Stephens.

Heading into Saturday’s gig, Blundell said it was a “real pleasure performing these days” as he has a healthy back catalogue of music to choose form – 30 years worth, in fact.

“I’m also being continually encouraged by Briar, my oldest son who tours with me now, to go back through the tracks and dig out some of the more recognised songs that weren’t singles,” Blundell said.

Saturday’s set list ranged from his 1989 album Kimberley Moon, through to tracks from Come On In and Campfire, both released in the last 18 months.
