Not Pretty But Definitely Entertaining
Chad Morgan, fondly known as “The Sheik of Scrubby Creek” released his first album in 1952 and is still touring the country with his vaudeville style of comic country and western songs, and goofy stage persona. Chad is the ultimate comic of Australian country music. He is instantly recognizable with his unique trademark teeth and ! Chad might not be a pretty picture to look at but he is definitely entertaining!
Chad Morgan is one of the last pioneers of Australian Country Music, and is still very active, touring Australia bringing his comical songs to fans. He has been prolific in his recorded output and live performances. While touring, Chad make sure he has fun and was dubbed the clown prince of comedy by Slim Dusty.
He has played all over Australia in all of manner of places, from tents to trucks to clubs and pubs, festivals, the Sydney Opera House – even a touring circus!! Chad portrays Aussie culture, warts and all and we love him for it. The dry humour that he uses to send up our beloved institutions and customs have thousands of people laughing at themselves every time they hear him sing.
Audiences are always delighted by Chad’s unique array of comic country and western songs such as The Sheik Of Scrubby Creek, I’m My Own Grandpa, The Shotgun Wedding, Double Decker Blowflies and There’s Life In The Old Dog Yet.
Chad was inducted into the Tamworth Hands of Fame in 1979, the Roll of Renown in 1987, the Kempsey Living Legend Award in 2002 and was the first person to be honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2010 CMAA Awards. A documentary film, I'm Not Dead Yet, was made about his life and he received the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in 2004.
As if an evening with Chad was not enough he also has a great support act in Ian & Glennys Muir who are musicians, singers, songwriters and entertainers. From growing up in the small Victorian country town of Tatura to the bright lights of Nashville, Tennessee, where Ian recorded his third album, their journey has always been an exciting one and they are an excellent complement to Chad’s performances.
