"Legendary Australian singer-songwriter Shane Howard has performed for former South African President Nelson Mandela and appeared as a guest artist with international stars including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, James Taylor and Carole King.
Now the former frontman of iconic Australian band Goanna is coming to Coolangatta Estate at Shoalhaven Heads to help raise much-needed funds for a local farm that is dedicated to helping disadvantaged and at-risk young people.
The Shane Howard Trio will be playing at Coolangatta Estate on Friday, 10 May to support A Taste of Paradise – Tim and Andy Francis’ permaculture and organic farm between Berry and Gerringong that has helped hundreds of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Fundraising Shoalhaven is staging the charity night to help A Taste of Paradise continue its great work with children aged five to 18, who are referred to its day programs by government child welfare workers and welfare agencies. The children spend time on the farm with the animals and the environment, being introduced to new skills while they are mentored and assisted to overcome the difficulties they are encountering in their lives."
