Silver Beat at The Gawler Fringe

 The Silver Beat Rock Choir and Band were a huge hit at the Gawler Fringe on Saturday. When Bob Dylan composed "Blowin' in The Wind", I doubt he ever imagined a choir of seniors singing it .They did him proud!  The choir meets at the Grenville Community Connections Hub, Playford Bvd. Elizabeth each week. The only condition for joining is that you must be over 65 years of age. They have a youtube channel.
