Concert for Corey

Local Musicians Band Together To Raise Much Needed Funds

Sunday 4 June will see some of Newcastle’s finest and most popular local acts band together to raise funds for fellow local musician Peter Gilchrist’s son, Corey Gilchrist.

Corey experienced a horrific accident in 2005, which saw him lose part of his foot. As covered in the local news at the time of the accident, Corey was caught in the crossfire of two trains and had his foot run over. He bravely wrapped a tourniquet around his foot, using his t-shirt, and screamed for help until fortunately he was found. The accident tragically resulted in the need for part of his foot to be amputated.

Corey is a 17 year old, budding musician and one of his all time idols is Rick Price, who will appear and perform as a special guest on Sunday 4 June at Mayfield Ex Services Club to help raise the much needed funds to cover the myriad of expenses his family are now facing.Newcastle Music Week 2006

Corey’s father, Peter, has a long history in Newcastle’s music industry. Peter’s fellow local musicians who will be performing on the evening include; The Retro Rockets, Grayson and Crumpet.
