Singer/songwriter Peter Combe is a national treasure. In his 30 year career he has put out twenty albums, won numerous awards and brought joy to many, many Australian children.
In his concert at the Old Museum in Brisbane Mr Combe wowed the audience, young and old alike, with songs from his new album Quirky Beserky the Turkey from Turkey (the title track of which was stuck in my head for the rest of the day) as well as a few old favourites. It was wonderful to see my kids enjoying classics such as Toffee Apple and Wash Your Face in Orange Juice just as much as I did as a child.
Many audience members came prepared with toffee apples to eat and newspaper hats to wear and children joined in copying the actions of the backup dancers and sang along.
