ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

PASSIONATELY INDEPENDENT

When Australian country music fans talk of the festival “biggies”, the Mildura Country Music Festival rates a mention alongside the Tamworth Country Music Festival and the Gympie Muster as one of the big three.

The major difference between the other two and the annual Mildura Country Music Festival is that Mildura has Australia’s biggest showcase of Independent entertainers.

What that means is a seemingly unending cast of highly talented professional country music artists who aren’t signed to major record label deals.

The Independent factor gives Mildura a very different complexion, and it’s a successful formula that has worked admirably over the past thirty years. In 2017, more than 70 individual artists and groups will entertain over the 10-day period to celebrate the festival’s 31st year, and the roster comprises many award winners. But then, when you consider that the Independent artists make up probably 95 percent of performers in the country music industry, and the calibre and achievements of the artists is well documented, it strikes home that there is a huge well of talent out there.

 

Shows Done & Dusted .....

I’m looking forward to being a part of the 2017 Hat’s Off To Country Music Festival, Tamworth. Thursday 6th – Sunday 9th July

I’ll be performing at The DAG Sheep Station, Nundle on Sunday 9th, 4pm – 8pm as part of Songwriters Showcase

Visit http://www.thedag.com.au/events/hats-off-to-country-christmas-in-july/ 

You can check the full Festival line up & program here http://www.destinationtamworth.com.au/Country-Music-/hatsoff/program

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Hats Off to Country festival was launched in Tamworth, Australia’s Country Music Capital, by the Country Music Association of Australia (CMAA) in 2000.

The main event for the first year was a tribute to Australia’s King of Country Music, Slim Dusty, where some five thousand people packed into the Tamworth Regional Entertainment & Conference to be a part of the major tribute.

Pubs and clubs across the city, and some within the Tamworth region, joined in by organising events and activities that all contributed to a wonderful country music festive atmosphere.

In the following years, Hats Off continued to be a major focus with, first, the CMAA organising annual tribute concerts and more and more local venues joining in to increase the quantity and range of entertainment.

Saturday 29th April 2017 - Percey's Bar & Kitchen, Orange NSW

I’m looking forward to hitting the road with Brendan Nawrocki on his Open Road Tour. http://brendannawrocki.squarespace.com/

We’ll be heading to Percy’s Bar & Kitchen, Orange NSW and playing some tunes from 7pm.

CHECK OUT PERCY’S BAR & KITCHEN AND ALL IT HAS TO OFFER.

 http://percysorange.com.au/

PERCY’S STORY

Sydney circa 1822 – Captain Percy Simpson was convinced by Governor Brisbane to head west with a bunch of ‘educated’ convicts and start producing food for NSW. Percy’s skill in motivating convicts was put to good use, and he commenced his work creating what is now an abundant regional food belt.

Fast-forward 193 years and Captain Percy’s legacy lives on in Orange’s newest small bar – Percy’s Bar & Kitchen. Established by two Sydney-siders, Chris and Fraser, who like our Captain Percy made the trip west of the mountains to continue the growing movement in the NSW food and wine scene.

 

Percy’s Bar & Kitchen aims to showcase the best of what the Orange region has to offer, brought together with the talent of local chefs,- an exciting yet approachable menu and a venue with enough quirky twists to keep you coming back for more.

Percy’s industrial feel is the work of award winning designers Luchetti Krelle, of Momofuku Seiobo, Chimmichurri, Ananas and SoCal fame.

Orange’s newest small bar welcomes locals and visitors alike, and we are certain Percy’s Bar & Kitchen will find a big place right in the heart of Orange.
