By Corowa Free Press

Matthew Fagan, internationally acclaimed Aussie guitarist is making himself available to perform at Yarrawonga Community Hall on Sunday 19 January from 2:30 to 4:30pm for a reduced fee to raise money for bush fire relief.

The profit raised will go to help families and communities impacted by the devastating bush fires. The funds will be donated to the Red Cross Relief Fund where all money is sent immediately to support the people who have lost their homes and possessions and are in urgent need of accommodation, food, clothing and essentials. There have been so many heartbreaking stories over the past months and this event is a chance for people to join together to help.

Matthew Fagan has a repertoire which extends from Bach to Beatles, Flamenco to Blues to Led Zeppelin. Matthew can play it all. He has toured around the world with entertainers including Billy Connolly, Natalie Cole, The Buena Vista Social Club, Shirley Bassey and Michael Crawford. Recently Matthew has performed at Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Federation Square and Adelaide Fringe Festival. He uses a number of instruments, including a unique 10 string guitar to present a varied program of Spanish, Rock, Jazz and Classical guitar.
