Luke O’Shea sings up the Leard

Country music legend and three time Golden Guitar winner Luke O’Shea was welcomed by Camp Wando this week whilst shooting the music video clip for his inspirational new song ‘Sing You Up’.

His visit could not have been more timely, with construction work  increasing day and night and dangerous  blasting becoming more frequent on the Maules Creek mine site.

Standing in front of his grandfather’s birthplace on the Namoi River, the property now owned by Whitehaven Coal is the site of Maules Creek water pump draining the life out the community, Luke reminds us that it has never been more important that the whole country not only sing, but stand up for the our land, our water and our future.

Luke is performing at this weeks Hats off to Country music festival in Tamworth. Keep an eye out for his new film clip featuring Gomeroi traditional owners, Maules Creek community members and the folks at Camp Wando.
