Larry Emdur adds his voice to Lismore concert after ‘stern’ words with music legend

0

Following the devastating floods across large parts of the Northern Rivers region of NSW, locals have enjoyed the chance to take some time out at free concert billed One From The Heart.

Held at the Lismore Showgrounds in ankle-deep mud following a recent downpour, the lineup featured such notable acts as Daryl Braithwaite, Paul Kelly, Jon Stevens, Sheppard and Grinspoon, who originated from the local area before gaining nationwide acclaim.

Local residents were granted free admission to enjoy the show, and The Morning Show host Larry Emdur attended the spirit-raising event to meet some of the concert-goers as well as the performers who played to a crowd who were happy to dance on the mud-soaked field well into the evening.

Backstage, renowned performer Daryl Braithwaite explained to Larry why he had given his time to perform at the concert for a crowd that had endured much heartache in recent months.

“I think we all get affected by music, musicians and such to help out in the way that we can,” Braithwaite said, before joking that he may not play his crowd favourite, Horses, which prompted Larry to warn he’d be calling for the riot police if it didn’t happen.

After reassuring Larry that he would indeed perform the popular singalong that has proven popular across generations, Braithwaite offered a message to those still recovering from the devastating floods from earlier this year.

“Look out towards you and think, ‘My God, you’ve done a good job and hopefully you get stronger and you push through it and we’ll be here for you’,” said Braithwaite.

Larry also caught up with former Noiseworks frontman Jon Stevens before he performed.

“We’re here to help out, whatever way we can, obviously (using) the power of music. It’s pretty confronting being here in Lismore and seeing the devastation, it’s crazy,” Stevens said.

As the mud on the ground lapped over the ankles of most attendees, Stevens spoke of how he hoped the concert would go some way in providing some temporary relief to locals still trying to get back on their feet.

“The music industry always comes together in time of need and this is no different. We’re here to continue shedding light on what’s happened here in Lismore and the Northern Rivers area,” said Stevens.

When Daryl Braithwaite hit the stage he performed Horses to an ecstatic crowd who sang along with every word, along with Larry and Lismore Lord Mayor Steve Krieg who sang some enthusiastic backup vocals after being convinced by The Morning Show host to join him onstage.
