McClymont sisters to grace Jacaranda Festival

The Grafton Jacaranda Festival is thrilled to announce that Sam McClymont, talented singer songwriter and TV presenter formally of Grafton will return be the guest of honour and be the co master of ceremonies at the Jacaranda Queen crowning on Saturday October 26.

They will be joined by the 2019 Toyota Star Maker winner, Blake O’Connor as the support act on the night.
