About This Series
Although I was commissioned a long time ago for Good Weekend to photograph the leading ladies of country music out of Tamworth, I have never been to the festival during my time in Australia. Spending the last days of the festival with a camera, some portable lights, and a press pass, in 45 degree heat photographing performers, was fun and interesting. I was told some great stories as I wandered the corners of Tamworth, coming across great players in old pubs, clubs, and even the Red Cross Hall. One street performer I photographed was represented in the Traditional Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. These people were great!
