James Pegler

Profile:
James Pegler was well-known in the 70s and 80s as a singer of ballads and love songs. Born in Castle Hill, Sydney NSW Australia, he worked as a jackeroo in Queensland and had seven successful working tours in England.

After eight years of intensive training at the Sydney Conservatorium, his career started in 1972 with success in the ABC’s “Showcase”. In England, he toured with Harry Secombe and Petula Clarke, and also appeared with Des O’Connor and Gladys Knight. ABC-TV produced a Special and then a series of six programs called “The James Pegler Show”.

Jim’s most personal triumph was when he performed at the United Nations UNICEF Concert in the General Assembly Hall in New York. The charity concert directed by Sir Robert Helpmann, was the first in the Assembly Hall for just one country and included other great Australian performers: Joan Sutherland, June Bronhill and Barry Crocker.

He passed away on 15 June 2004 due to heart failure.
