Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Meet Paul Fergus Performing At KC’s This Sunday

With his mother’s side of the family having 14 members and all being musical, Paul Fergus was involved in lots of family sing-a-longs and it sparked his passion for music.

At the age of 10, Paul received great feedback from friends and teachers for his work in school productions.

“It’s better than them throwing tomatoes at you,” joked Paul.

Then during early teenage years, Paul started to enjoy acting, he enjoyed being the class clown and thought pursuing acting would be a good way to turn it into something useful.

Studying Performing Arts at university, Paul jumped into the acting world, and has performed for The Australian Shakespeare Company for 10 years.

It wasn’t until this time last year, however, that Paul knuckled down on his solo music career, and discovered a new passion.

“I like that it’s up to you, it leaves nothing to chance and the clap at the end is all yours,” said Paul.

After performing in venues on Hamilton Island in February and Hayman Island, Paul arrived in Airlie in early April and has loved performing here since.

At KC’s Paul will be performing foot stomping covers of songs that we all know and love.
