Hats Off salute
Tamworth, Tuesday 10 July 2007: Now that the annual Hats Off to Country Festival has come to a close, organisers have heralded the four days, a fantastic success with all reports showing the Festival is continuing to grow in popularity.

Incorporating more the 80 artists over the four-day Festival, events were held at over 15 venues across town highlighting the renewed business and community support for Hats Off. In addition to those shows scheduled on the official program, there were some eight-12 other events that were held as well as a number of buskers entertaining the people in Peel Street.

“There were more than 6,900 people through the Visitor Information Centre during the week of the Festival, which shows the influx of people to town and we estimate there were around 10,000 people including locals and visitors that took part in Festival activities this year,” said Mr David Woodward, Marketing Manager, Tourism Tamworth.

The pinnacle event of this year’s Hats Off to Country Festival was the ‘Golden Guitars salute to John Williamson’ held on Saturday 7th July. Tickets to this special tribute sold out, the gathered crowd fell in love with the various artists interpretations of John’s music.

The emotion charged, fun-filled evening was a hit with fans young and old, especially when John himself took the stage to sing seven songs, finishing off with a rousing rendition of ‘True Blue’ where he was joined on stage by all the country music artists that took part in the concert.

With more than 150 hours of entertainment on the program, Festival-goers had plenty to choose from including established artists such as Chad Morgan, Bill Chambers, the Young Balladeers and Luke O’Shea and the Medicine Wheel, through to emerging artists featured in showcases such as the Camerata Graduation Concert and the CCMA Winter Junior Talent Quest plus favourites from the January Festival such as Lonnie Lee and The Pigs.

The 2007 Hats Off to Country Festival received a boost this year with the successful application for a grant from the Tourism NSW Regional Flagship Events program resulting in an additional $10,000 being made available for the marketing and promotion of the Festival.

“We have also worked tirelessly to bring on board additional sponsors and business supporters to assist in generating increased exposure and interest in the Festival which, without the funding from Tourism NSW next year, guarantees the Festival will continue moving forward in a positive direction both in 2008 and beyond,” added Mr Woodward.

Discussions are about to take place for the planning for the 2008 Hats Off to Country Festival to develop new ways and events to continue to grow the mid-year Festival and further cement its place in the country music industry as a “must-see” event.

Lynette Guest on The Wall of Honour
Tamworth’s own Lynette Guest was the mid-year inductee onto the Wall of Honour during The Hats Off Festival.
The Wall is dedicated to Australian Country Music Artists making an important contribution of our Professional Recording Industry and Lyn’s involvement has been significant for several decades.

Eric Scott spoke about her many harmony sessions in the 70’s & 80’s at Hadley Records. Hadley, at that time, was the main country recording studio and label operating out of Tamworth.

As always, Eric’s commanding speech immediately set the mood.
 
Lindsay Butler then added his tribute to a lady whom he admires greatly for her attitude and aptitude in the recording studio. Lyn has been involved with many LBS releases since its inception 18 years ago. Lindsay also toured with Lyn on the Buddy Williams Show and reminisced about those days.

Two of her close friends, Patti Morgan and Lorraine Pfitzner added the personal touch to the presentation and a recorded message from her Brother Kelvin was also played over the PA, moving Lyn and everyone else inside Butlers.

Ross Murphy of Opal records proudly sponsored Lyn onto the wall and gladly made the presentation, paying respects to her as a groomed professional whenever she entered the studio to record.

The crowd was obviously moved by the personal presentation to a lady whose contribution to the Recording Industry has been huge and in Lyn’s own humble manner she quietly said ‘I thought there was something up’ when Shaz interrupted her performance and her guitar was removed.

Lyn now joins the likes of Lindsay Butler, John Williamson, Col Elliott & Graeme Connors on the Wall Of Honour.

Since its inception in 2000, the Hats Off to Country Festival has continued to grow in popularity and is now seen as a platform for emerging artists to find their feet thanks in part to the Tamworth Camerata College and the CCMA Winter Junior Talent Quest.

“As the cooler weather sets in, the Hats Off to Country Festival has become the perfect antidote to the winter months as visitors are able to rug up next to an earth-warm fire and hear some of the best new music in the industry,” added Ms Thomson.

The feature event will be the ‘Golden Guitars salute the songs of John Williamson’ featuring feature John Williamson, Gina Jeffreys, Beccy Cole, Sara Storer, Brendon Walmsley, Lindsay Butler, Tracy Coster and Jeff Brown, and will be MC’d by Jim Haynes. Scheduled to be held on Saturday 7 July in ‘Blazes Auditorium’ at West Tamworth League Club, this unique tribute concert showcases the influence of John Williamson on the Australian country music industry and allows industry colleagues to pay homage to the ‘true-blue’ Aussie.

There are still a limited number of tickets available for this concert which can be purchased through Tourism Tamworth by phoning 02 6767 5300, via the website www.visittamworth.com  or over-the-counter at the Visitor Information Centre (corner Peel and Murray Streets).

“We encourage anyone interested in attending the show to hurry up and get their tickets before they miss out – the concert has been very popular and we are confident that it will sell out,” said Ms Thomson.

Festival-goers will be treated to a wide array of entertainment and if they are unable to make it to the pinnacle concert, visitors and residents alike are urged to get amongst the events on offer such as the Country Art 4 Cancer Black & White Ball also on Saturday evening or any of the other 60+ shows occurring over the four-day country music celebration.

Willo’s songs to be presented to a packed house
John Williamson is looking forward to “one of the most relaxing gigs” of his life this Saturday night in Tamworth. The Golden Guitars Salute the Songs of John Williamson will afford the prolific song scribe the chance to sit back and analyse his words, coming out of other singers’ mouths.
 
“I often worry if I’ve only written songs for myself, and that nobody else can sing them,” John said. “I used to sing some of Slim’s songs, Stan Coster’s, Eric Bogle’s, and we all did that in a kind of supportive way – we were helping each other out, rather than doing American covers.”
 
John is rapt that he’s the subject of this special event, and believes it’s a “great sign of the times” that Australian artists would pay homage to a fellow Aussie. “I suppose it’s a testament to my songs, and I haven’t had that before. It’s going to be good to be relaxed and sit back and have a good time at the show,” he said.

“I’m very flattered by it, so I’ll be wearing another cap on the night. I’m looking forward to hearing other people’s interpretations of my work and to hear a quality band playing those songs too.”

Artists who will perform on the night are Gina Jeffreys, Beccy Cole, Sara Storer, Brendon Walmsley, Tracy Coster, Jeff Brown, Lindsay Butler, Jim Haynes and the man himself will close the show.

Less than a week out from the event tickets are very close to selling out, so anyone thinking they might grab a ticket on the night could be in for a disappointment. Tourism Tamworth staff said there had been strong interest in the event since tickets were released two months ago.

This unique event, a joint presentation of Tourism Tamworth and the CMAA, will be staged in Blazes showroom at West Tamworth League Club on Saturday, July 7. Tickets are available from Tourism Tamworth, phone 6767 5300, or via the website: www.visittamworth.com

Bush babies’ gather to pay tribute to Willo
The Hats Off to Country Festival is now only weeks away and tickets are selling fast for the main event – the Golden Guitars Salute the Songs of John Williamson. This star-studded concert features the talents of Gina Jeffreys, Beccy Cole, Sara Storer, Jim Haynes, Jeff Brown, Tracy Coster and Lindsay Butler – and the man himself – John Williamson. For bush balladeer Jeff Brown, performing on the tribute concert is “an absolute privilege”.Jeff acknowledged that John Williamson has long been an Australian icon, but it wasn’t until he was around 17 years of age that Jeff really got into John’s music.

“I had just broken my ankle and as I was unable to work outside, my mother brought home a couple of John’s ‘live in concert’ videos for me to watch,” Jeff said. “Having time on my hands, I watched them over and over, and the more I watched them the more I appreciated what a talented and a great muso he is.”
Jeff said one of the highlights of his career to date was at the 2005 Tamworth Country Music Festival when John’s manager, Phil Matthews, called and invited him to perform on John’s show in Bicentennial Park.

“It was a great feeling then and it’s a real honour now to be a part of this tribute to John. I believe he’s well and truly earned his place as an Australian icon and a legend in the Australian country music scene. May he keep on making great music for many years to come.”

Since launching his new CD, Harvest Time Again, in January at Pittsworth, and marrying wife Lyn on January 13, 2007 has shaped up to be a pretty busy year for Jeff. He has toured constantly, performing at festivals all over the country, and will be appearing in Tamworth during Hats Off with The Young Balladeers – Dan and Matt Manning, Nathan Charlton and Amos Morris.

Another “bush baby” appearing on the show, who is also a major John Williamson fan, is Golden Guitar winner Tracy Coster.

“I was thrilled to be asked to be a one of the artists chosen to pay tribute to Willo at Hats Off this year,” Tracy said. “I have admired and respected John's work for ever. I first got into his music in the 80s and remember being totally blown away by his writing. His truly Australian take on music spoke to me.
“I remember playing his CDs True Blue and Fair Dinkum over and over in the old purple as we travelled from town to town on the road. The toughest thing of course will be choosing the songs, there are so many classics! “John is an icon and on top of that a bloody good bloke and I for one will be proud to pay tribute to him.”

For Tracy, 2007 has been a year of relentless touring and business as usual – making music, as only a Coster can.

Following a hectic schedule at the Tamworth Country Music Festival where she was a finalist in the Golden Guitar Awards, Tracy headed straight off to Tasmania to make her first appearance at the Launceston Country Music Festival. Tracy was very warmly received by the folks in Tassie and plans to return again next year.

A follow-up tour of 21 shows in 28 days kept Tracy, and new players Scott Donaldson and Mitchell King, on the move.

A significant event in the early part of this year for Tracy was performing at the annual Tent Hill Turn Out.

This was the 10th anniversary of her late father, Stan Coster’s passing, and was one of the biggest and best events yet. Artists on the bill such as Anne Kirkpatrick, Brian Young, Rick and Lyn Carey, Glenn Jones, Ian Quinn and many others made it a memorable turnout indeed.
This concert will be staged in Blazes Showroom at Wests on Saturday, July 7, and is a joint presentation of the Country Music Association of Australia and Tourism Tamworth.

Gina and Jim take their ‘Hats Off’ to the Mallee Boy’s songs
 
Hearing a variety of artists sing their own versions of the songs of acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter John Williamson will ensure the main event of the Hats Off to Country Festival in Tamworth is a truly unique experience for concert goers.

Multiple Golden Guitar winner Gina Jeffreys is one artist who would rarely sing a John Williamson song – but Gina is delighted to have been chosen for this special event.

“I’ve always had a great respect for John, as he’s written some truly beautiful songs, with the most magical melodies,” Gina said. “I am really looking forward to interpreting some of John’s tunes in my own way.”

Gina is currently touring Australia as part of The Songbirds – a trio of stars featuring fellow Golden Guitar winners Beccy Cole and Sara Storer. The Songbirds have played to sellout crowds at several venues and audience members at the Hats Off concert will get a small sampling of Songbirds magic – John Williamson style. Since the January release of Gina’s new album, Walks of Life, she’s been heard on radio across Australia, and has just released a second single, Stepped Right In It.

Gina will be joined by a host of Golden Guitar winners on the star-studded lineup for The Golden Guitars Salute the Songs of John Williamson – Beccy Cole, Sara Storer, Brendon Walmsley, Jim Haynes, Jeff Brown, Tracy Coster and Lindsay Butler, together with the event’s namesake, John Williamson.

Compering the concert is host with the most, Jim Haynes, who’s had a long and very fruitful association with John Williamson and John’s manager, Phil Matthews. “John and Phil were so good to me at the start of my solo career, after I left Bandy Bill & Co,” Jim said. “I actually sang backing vocals on a couple of John’s albums – Waratah Street and Boomerang Café, so I was more than happy to be part of this special event. I don’t do that many covers of other people’s songs, but John is the exception there.

“I remember reciting Galleries of Pink Galahs on Radio 2UE in Sydney and John came into the studio and sang the other half of it. We got some wonderful calls from listeners who enjoyed the presentation. I will feature another of John’s songs I do in my school shows, so it will be a lot of fun presenting those on the night as well as introducing all the other great acts.”

This concert will be held in Blazes Showroom of Wests on Saturday, July 7, 2007. It is a joint presentation of the Country Music Association of Australia and Tourism Tamworth. Ticketing inquiries can be directed to Tourism Tamworth on (02) 6767 5300 or visit www.visittamworth.com

Unique event salutes a true blue Australian son
Australian country music is truly coming of age when it can pay tribute to the songs of one of its own.
 
These are the heartfelt sentiments of multiple Golden Guitar winner John Williamson, whose songs are the subject of the main event of the 2007 Hats Off to Country Festival – The Golden Guitars Salute the Songs of John Williamson.
 
A multi-artist event featuring some of the biggest names in the business, the concert is shaping up to be one of the most unique and exciting events of 2007 – and is the centrepiece of Tamworth’s winter country music festival.

“I am very flattered that my peers are putting together a show of my songs,” John said. “As I haven’t heard much of my material performed by others, it will be quite a thrill for me to hear it. It will be good to put on my songwriting hat and see how my songs stand up when interpreted by others. Also – it’s great that Aussies nowadays cover Aussie material, instead of American. This is a fairly recent thing. It’s a sign that we’re coming of age.”

Artists who will present their own versions of John’s songs include Gina Jeffreys, Beccy Cole, Sara Storer, Jim Haynes, Brendon Walmsley, Jeff Brown, Tracy Coster and Lindsay Butler.

For Compass Bros artist Brendon Walmsley, it’s the ultimate honour, as it was “the Mallee boy” who inspired the young Queenslander to first pick up a guitar and sing. “John Williamson is the reason I got into country music,” Brendon said yesterday. “I was about 15 when he came to Roma, and I came away from that show knowing that’s what I want to do when I grow up. Most of the songs I first learnt on guitar were John Williamson songs. I used to listen to the albums, write down the words and then learn them off by heart. It’s such an honour to be part of the show.”

Brendon is looking forward to returning to Tamworth for Hats Off, as he will be in the throes of preparing for a tour of Victoria and Southern NSW, in the company of Carter & Carter and Dianna Corcoran. He’s currently writing material for his next album, which he admits is “long overdue”.

This special will be held in Blazes auditorium of Wests on Saturday, July 7, 2007. It is a joint presentation of the Country Music Association of Australia and Tourism Tamworth. Ticketing inquiries can be directed to Tourism Tamworth on (02) 6767 5300 or by visiting the website, www.visittamworth.com
