Our talented resident, Margaret Wright, won the open age popular song category at the Coffs Harbour Eisteddfod held
2nd June at the Jetty Theatre.
“There were 16 contestants, and only 3 oldies” said Margaret, who was one of 3 competitors from Mei Wei’s Swingphonia choir. It was Mei Wei who encouraged Margaret to enter the competition.
Margaret won 1st Prize singing the song “Bye Bye Blackbird”.
The judges comments said “Wow.
Great sense of showmanship.
You had the audience in the palm of your hand. A great feel for the song today.
