Contribution to folk music recognised with award
Ken Grose's contribution to folk and acoustic music has been recognised with the presentation of a NSW Seniors Local Achievement Award for 2019.
It was presented by Member for Gosford Ms Leisl Tesch at a concert and ceremony at St Luke's Hall, Woy Woy, on Saturday, July 27.
She said his award was truly deserved and long-overdue recognition.
Ken is a member of Woy Woy's Troubadour Folk and Acoustic Music Club.
"He has made a long-standing and lasting impact on the quality of the sound provided at our monthly concerts since he retired to Woy Woy from Balmain seven years ago," said club president Mr Michael Fine.
"He works in a voluntary capacity to set up the sound for our concerts, microphones, amplifiers and concert equipment.
"He records concerts and then makes the sound and audio recordings available to our local audience members on the Central Coast, and to interested viewers and listeners elsewhere in NSW, Australia and internationally.
"Ken's work literally takes the Troubadour's program on the Central Coast to the world through YouTube and Facebook."
Mr Fine said this had significantly increased the reach and impact of the club's concerts far beyond the local members and guests to those not able to attend the concerts.
Ken said it was an honour to receive the award and a complete surprise.
