Country music star Allan Webster will return to Victor Harbor this month for an afternoon of tunes and friendly banter.

Victorian performer Ian "Bidge" Boyd was also set to hit the stage for his first performance on the Fleurieu Peninsula, but has had to cancel due to COVID-19 restrictions, leaving Webster to perform an anticipated solo show.

In April, he visited Victor Harbor for the first time, playing to an exuberant, sell-out crowd. His latest show is also anticipated to sell out quickly.

Born in the UK, Webster developed his musical skills in Liverpool in the 1960s, playing the same venues as bands like The Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers and The Searchers.

Upon emigrating to Australia in 1964, Webster formed The Road Runners, which played with a typical 'Mersey Sound' and soon became very popular, performing across the country and supporting big international acts including John Farnham, Marcia Hines and Freddy and the Dreamers.

In the 1990s, Webster delved into country music as a solo performer and over the last 22 years has recorded five country albums and toured Australia, New Zealand and further abroad.

Webster will hit the stage next weekend at the Lutheran Church Hall, Victor Harbor on Saturday, August 28, from 2-5pm.

Tickets are $20 per person and bookings are essential by phoning Lesley: 04 0882 7080 or Maureen: 04 1889 8248.

COVID-19 restrictions will apply. BYO drinks and nibbles (no alcohol).
