NEW! (16/1/2018)
Peter Coad (OAM) - 'Tommy Mac' (written & recorded by Peter Coad)
A digital radio single has been released via CRS

( Digital sales of the single were available through this site, but the track is NOW AVAILABLE VIA THE BALLADEERS VOL 20 released May 2018)


TOMMY MAC

This track is the first single from a forthcoming album scheduled for release late 2018 and is a story of a real life character that lived in Yorketown on the Yorke Peninsular of South Australia.

The idea of the song came to Peter after a conversation with Lorraine Pfitzner (O.A.M.) who knew 'Tommy Mac' when she a child in the area.

Ably backed with music and harmonies by his two sisters Virginia and Lynette, Peter tells the story of Tommy Mac, ‘a veteran of the Great War' (WW1).

Interviews/and/or media queries very welcome.

Virginia and Lynette were very excited and honoured to pick up the 'Group/Duo' award at Bungendore Country Music Muster Stan Coster Memorial Awards on Saturday 6th of February for their interpretation of a classic Bill Chambers composition recorded by the late Slim Dusty "Things Are Not The Same On The Land".

The album is multi-artist and available from BUY ALBUM on the ABBA site or you may obtain a copy from PETER COAD & THE COAD SISTERS at a show or by mail order.

Operating their own studio since that time, Coad Sisters provide all the backing for their album releases.

This is their second Bungendore 'Group/Duo' award.

Their RUNAWAY DIXIE band grabbed a GOLDEN GUITAR FINALIST spot in the 2016 awards, with a track recorded by the girls. The track was 'Lonesome and Blue' written by Virginia Coad and released on the RUNAWAY DIXIE album 'Bayou Queen'. (All RUNAWAY DIXIE albums available via their website or through all good online digital stores.)

The COAD SISTERS sincerely thank everyone for their support over the years and 28 years later they are still on the road, bringing their music to clubs, halls, festivals and events around Australia.
