Damien Leith to sing at dads' festival
HE might have been Australia's Idol, but singer Damien Leith is idolised most by his two sons, Jarvis Dion and Jagger Ramone.
Leith will perform at the fifth annual Fatherhood Festival, supported by Mr Percival, Mick McHugh, Leigh Carriage, Kurtis, Ross Nobel and sons on Saturday September 6.
Leith, whose sterling tenor voice brings tears to the most cynical eyes, will perform in the major benefit concert at the festival.
Leith has had a remarkable and multi-faceted career since he wowed Australian Idol fans and won the top prize in 2006.
His first album Where the Land reached the top of the charts, and was followed in 2007 by the beautiful The Winners Journey.
These days Leith is touting his exquisitely nostalgic new CD Catch the Wind: Songs of a Generation, as well as promoting his first novel, One More Time. Is there anything this young father of two can't do?
He's very excited to be participating in the Fatherhood Festival, and has agreed to also be a judge in the finals of the Family Idol competition, to be held during the Family Fun Day on Sunday September 7, at Bangalow Showground.
The Saturday night show is a family concert, with doors opening at 6pm. Catering by Open Table will provide dinner and drinks. Tickets are $25, $20 concession and $12 for under 16s.
Tickets can be purchased from Barebones Artspace, Mullumbimby Bookshop, Southern Cross Credit Union offices and online.
