Tegan Guthrie - Kalgoorlie Miner
Local 16-year-old guitarist Ethan Kavanagh received the chance of a lifetime to play as the support act for power vocalist Toni Childs.
Ethan was just finishing work one day when he got a phone call saying his name had been put forward as Childs’ fill-in as her support act was sick.
“I was bloody well rapt, it’s been difficult to get around, it’s only recently I’ve got my name out there,” Ethan said.
Ethan played a half-hour set and his songs were well received by the audience.
“The best one was actually my original, ‘Quit Your Bitchin’,” Ethan said.
“That was its debut so it was the first time anyone actually heard it.”
