Tamworth, Tamworth, Tamworth!! What can I say? AMAZING! This is my fourth year of attending and do you think any of the novelty has worn off for me? No way! It just seems to get better and better each time I go. This year got myself around to a lot of good gigs and shows when I wasn't performing myself. There is just so much talent getting around, so if you haven't been, get yourself there next year pronto!
Some of my highlights this year was performing at the "Nia Robertson Presents Storytellers Showcase", which gets you up close and personal with the songwriters in a beautiful air conditioned venue (the Ibis Towers). If you're lucky enough, you get to hear some brand new songs which have never been heard before. Another highlight was performing with the band from Kross Kut Records at the Oasis (pictured above) on the Friday night...what an amazing experience! The place was packed to bursting and everyone was so friendly.
If you're looking for an excellent feed, I recommend the SSS Steakhouse. The steak was to die for, and it's only a short stroll from there to the Longyard hotel so you can head over there after dinner for some live music.
I must say the part I love the most is catching up with all the friends I've met there over the last few years and meeting a lot of new faces. I'm already counting down the days till the next festival!
