FIRESIDE FESTIVAL: William Crighton to host MASSIVE Campfire live stream

Hunter-based songwriter William Crighton certainly hasn’t been resting on his laurels during the pandemic.

The hirsute tunesmith has been scratching that performance itch by live streaming intimate performances around a campfire in his backyard and this week’s iteration promises to be an absolute doozy.

William has enlisted a bevy of musical mates including Kasey Chambers, Missy Higgins, Kim Churchill and Melody Pool for a very special Crighton Campfire on Tuesday 9 June.

The live streamed concert which will kick off from 8pm will raise funds for Jungala – a respected Aboriginal elder and traditional dancer who recently suffered the loss of a leg.

“Jungala is an elder and traditional dancer, a real inspirational fella,” William wrote on the event’s Facebook page.

“You may have seen him dancing on stage at one of your favourite music festivals. His spirit reaches far and wide and he’s had a positive impact on many. Unfortunately, he has suffered the loss of his leg recently and we are throwing this campfire to help raise funds for his prosthetics and rehab.”
