Jodie Crosby, right, introduced some terrific writers to the Services Club
stage on Saturday, including Golden Guitar winner Deniese Morrison, left,
who showcased some brand new songs
 
The multi-talented Luke O'Shea backed up for the songwriters' gig on
Saturday, after a HUGE night  on Friday with his band at the same venue

Phil Doublet showed he's not only a great guitarist, but can write an
awesome song or two - he shared The Keeper with the appreciative audience on
Saturday afternoon
Phil Doublet had a handy (and cute) back-up singer and guitarist in Luke
O'Shea
Rod Dowsett had a busy dancecard on Saturday, but managed to slip in the
songwriters' gig between Sam Smyth's early morning show at the bowlo and his
own band gig that night at The Tudor. 

 
Those Gals - from left, Kerry Walsh, Wendy Wood and Carolyne Morris - shared
three songs with the Services club audience, before zipping off to their gig
at the Tudor Saturday afternoon.

Brenda Lee Heathcote claimed to be 'rusty' in the singing department, but
her songs were still as awesome as ever. It was great to see and hear Brenda
back in Tamworth, where she is much missed by her musical family

Tamworth's Tad Kiemski said he hadn't sung in ages, but that voice certainly
came through loud and clear - and his songs went down well with the crowd at
the Services
 
Tamworth singer-songwriter Matt O'Leary sang a few of his classy original
tunes before playing guitar for the lovely Deniese Morrison during her set
 

It was catch-up time for these three musical friends at the Blue Dog TIARA
Songwriters' gig at the Services club - Rob Breese, Ollie Agostino and
Brenda Lee Heathcote
 
The Hunter Valley Musical Appreciation Society was out in force, enjoying gigs all over town -

the Services club for the songwriter show

Maria Gruer, Jenny Tilbrook and Tracey Bell were caught enjoying themselves
immensely at the Blue Dog TIARA Songwriters' show at Tamworth Services Club
Jason Kemp and Wanita were two of the super songwriters on deck at this great gig. Wanita, who said she
doesn't consider herself a songwriter, blew everyone away with two fabulous originals,
 Since They've Changed the Rules and an absolute classic - If There's A Honky
Tonk In Hell, Someone Kill Me!
