The Greymare Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Githabul People

Greymare Hall was established in 1936 – an authentic country hall set in the heart of a community steeped in history. In the early days of European settlement, a hotel, cheese factory, sale yards, sports ground and rail siding was the lifeblood of the district. And aren’t you desperate to know why it was called Greymare? The town was named after a grey mare which belonged to pastoralist John Deuchar. The horse would escape from any paddock and head for the Greymare Creek. The Graymare railway station was named in 1904. Now that’s a legacy a horse can be proud of. 

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Greymare Wednesday, 13 October, 2021 with Darren Hanlon and Kelly Brouhaha. 

Phil Velacott will open the show!

For Phillip Vellacott, music is a way of life.

He grew up singing and playing alongside Australian country music greats and developed his own music mix of pop, jazz, country, bluegrass and rock that keeps it interesting.

It’s his varied repertoire and versatility across most music styles that ensures Phillip is a great fit for any entertainment occasion… from solo to a band situation. 

There have been plenty of highlights across Phillip’s music journey.

He kicked off his band work in Brisbane in the 80s, playing gigs across South East Queensland. He worked consistently at Tamworth for a number of years and was Musical Director for Gympie Muster’s Talent Search for over 25 years. He also toured Queensland and the Northern Territory with the popular Brian Young Show as Brian’s lead guitarist in the late 80s.

According to Phillip, a musician’s life is a window to dealing with happy and celebratory people.

“Being adaptable and reading the crowd vibe enables me to give a performance that connects with an audience, no matter their age or interests.”
