With Mollie McClymont (The McClymonts)
Hugely popular country music trio The McClymonts have come a long way since their early days as youngsters in Grafton. The three sisters started writing and playing music from their house on Villiers Street, recording and singing into a cassette recorder with songs often revolving around school, boys and family. When they weren’t singing, they were living the classic country-town life of sport, community events, music and family. We caught up with Mollie in between her busy schedule of festivals and touring for a quick interrogation.
Who is your favourite person to hug?
My all-time favourite has to be my son Ned. He’s so cuddly and affectionate. I smother him with hugs all day long.
What makes you angry?
People who litter, who walk across pedestrian crossings slowly, bad customer service ... I could go on!
Where do you consider to be home?
Grafton is our home town, and always will be. It’s a beautiful and humbling place to call home.
When is the best time for a cup of tea?
After dinner. I’m always hungry after dinner so a green tea always fills the gap.
Why do you love dogs so much?
What’s not to love about dogs? They’re great company – happy to do anything as long as it’s with you, such as a walk, beach, lazy Sundays on the couch, or hangs in the backyard. They don’t judge, and are so cute!
How do you define success?
