Allan Caswell, the six time Golden Guitar winner at the Tamworth Country Music Festival is planning on taking to the country by Eyre when he launches his next tour in his very own Winnebago Eyre.
“it was the stylish good looks of the Eyre together with the huge amount of storage space at the rear of the motorhome that decided it” said Allan, “There was loads of room for my guitars and amps in the storage area, leaving the inside uncluttered and making for a far more pleasant trip. I just had to have it, and the Winnebago name was certainly the clincher”.
Allan is happy to adopt the mantle of Winnebago RV Club Ambassador as he feels that the motorhome fraternity is a bit like he is, happy to wander the countryside looking for peace and tranquillity, sights and sounds and great experiences. “The Winnebago RV Club is something I want to get involved with. It seems like a great way to meet people and enjoy life on the road”.
Allan is well known to Country music aficionados for his contribution to the Country music scene for many decades. From his song writing debut back in 1973 and his first Golden Guitar in 1980 for best new talent, Allan has not looked back.
Almost 40 years on, a platinum and four gold albums later and accolades for writing the theme to the hit TV series Prisoner, Allan has over 900 songs published and around 500 of his songs recorded worldwide, released by artists of the calibre of Cilla Black, The Irish Rovers, Patti Page, Slim Dusty, James Blundell and The Living End.
Allan’s career as an entertainer has taken him to almost every town in NSW, every state in Australia, to New York, LA, Nashville, New Zealand, East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked live with Garth Brooks, Don McLean, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Herman’s Hermits, Pam Ayers and The Little River Band and in the studio with Tommy Emmanuel, Vince Gill, Kathy Mattea and Highway 101.
At the height of The America’s Cup hysteria when Australia 2 was in trouble, Caswell wrote and released “The Australia’s Cup”. The record, recorded for $38 and released independently, went to No.1 in Sydney and top 5 nationally. In 2005 Caswell had his first book “Writing Great Song Lyrics” published. His second book, “Split Personalities”, a book of poetry written in collaboration with his best-selling author brother, Brian is nearing completion. He also works as a freelance journalist.
Allan these days prefers a more laid back approach to life and loves the more personal venues where he can showcase his considerable talents to smaller audiences right around Australia and has presently embarked on his latest tour he cheekily entitles “Caswell Takes it To Australia By Eyre” a pointed reference to his new Winnebago Eyre motorhome.
Allan will be appearing at the upcoming WRVC Christmas Party at the fantastic Darlington Holiday Park near Coffs Harbour in NSW on December 3 and will be playing his new song entitled “Happy Hour” a song written especially for the Winnebago RV Club.
His tour commences at Katoomba on the 20th November and his concerts through to the end of January are sure to be well patronised. Visit www.allancaswell.com to find out future concert dates.
