COUNTRY singer Reg Lindsay's vocal tutor Jill Adam and Reg's widow Roslynd Lindsay are putting on a concert in Lismore to raise money to put a life-size bronze statue on his grave in Cessnock.

In 1979 Reg Lindsay put on a variety concert at Lismore City Hall to raise money for North Coast children's homes.

Now, 34 years later, Ms Adam is calling on Lismore to "do something for Reg".

To this end she will host a variety gala concert like the one Reg held in 1979. The concert will this time be at Lismore Workers Club on Sunday at 2pm.

The concert will have professional country music artists from the Central Coast and Tamworth.

There will also be local children singing, dancing and performing circus arts. The show is designed for families and will have "something for everyone".

"Reg had an international reputation and he helped us out back then and now it's our turn to do something for Reg," Ms Adam said.

Entry costs $15 for adults and $8 for pensioners and children under 12.

All money will go towards the statue.

For more information, phone Jill Adam on 6666 1522.
