After graduating from the 2002 CMAA college,  Brooke performed along with the other graduates at a concert to show off their achievements to a large crowd at West Tamworth Leagues Club.  There certainly was a lot of talent on that stage.  Thinking that she could relax and enjoy the rest of the festival, Brooke was delighted to be invited, as a guest, to sing her composition "My Home" at the Superstars of Bluegrass.   It was superb.   Rod McCormack's acoustic guitar accompaniment was, of course, just perfect.   And another thrill for Brooke, was to sing duet with Gina Jeffreys, the old standard, "Old Paint".   A quick trip back home for a gig at the Beach Hotel Merewether, then grab a change of clothes or two then, back to Tamworth.   Brooke was selected from the college to perform

on the 'red carpet' in front of the Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre.   Who knows what the future holds for this talented young lady, maybe a gig inside T.R.E.C. next year???

   Perhaps the biggest thrill in Brooke's rather hectic week came as a result of her great performance in the college concert, Brooke was asked by Allied Artist's Rob Potts if she would like to open the Monday night international songwriters showcase at 'The Basement' in Sydney's Circular Quay.   She grabbed the chance and played in a room steeped in Aussie music legends (just have a glance at the posters on the walls!) and to play before a couple of her song writing heroes, Audrey Auld and Fred Eaglesmith, was probably the highlight of Brooke's music career.    Brooke performed seven of her songs and was again accompanied by the beautiful guitar of Rod McCormack.   Brooke's singing and her own compositions were very warmly received by The Basement audience.  A terrific night and a stellar performance by a truly talented singer/songwriter.
