- Meg from Ginjaroe hits a
fine note at the Mildura Country Music Festival!
Well, after a huge weekend of plucking guitar, tootin some tunes
from the harp and singing to her hearts content, Meg Doherty from
trio 'Ginjaroe' has had huge success from the Top of the state 2006
talent Quest. Meg performed all of her own original songs taking out
a place for almost all category's she competed in.
Results for 2006 were as follows;
Senior Vocal - 1st Place
Open instrumental/ Vocal - 2nd Place
Senior open duet - Ginjaroe came 2nd place in a stiff contest!
Senior Australian Country vocal - 1st Place
Senior Overall winner of the top of the state talent quest - 1st
Grand Overall winner of the top of the state talent quest - 1st
Victorian Champion of Champions - Senior Female - 1st Place
For her second year competing in the competition, Meg says she was
absolutely shocked, delighted, excited and overwhelmed with the
success from the weekend. Brianna Lee (last years top of the state
competition winner) delighted the crowd singing a few songs amongst
a few other young and upcoming country music stars of Australia.
The girls are confident that success is just around the corner for
the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Ginjaroe will be making their
way up to the festival in January next year!

this ever changing music industry! Us girls have just started

- My name is Megan Therese
Doherty. I am a singer songwriter from Melbourne and perform my
original songs as a female duo, my buddy's name is Pam.
My music is classified as the folk,
blues genre, but also falls in to alternative country.
I was lucky enough to win the
Cranbourne heat to be able to experience the Telstra road to
Tamworth national competition.
It was a great competition, and I
was also lucky enough to meet and chat with some of the grand
finalists. I am not a competitive person so the actual competition
was although fantastic, not really for me.
I busked most days on Peel street
and met a good crowd of people, some bought cd's, some were happy to
spectate and keep walking, but all in all, I was just happy, as a
musician to see the show case of talent in the competition and also
through out Tamworth.
I caught up with 17 year old
Tasmanian contestant Tom Coulson, we had a jam and were able to
perform a song at the Family Hotel on the last Wednesday night of
Jake Nikolai was my favourite to
hear and watch at West Leagues! Boy he plays a mean solo! Jonah's
Road, another amazing band to watch and listen to.
I will definitely be back next
year, applying for the college and hoping to meet another bunch of
I had my guitar signed by Lee
Kernaghan! It looks cool as. He gave some good advice. That was
definitely a high light.
I want to say a special thank you
to the Telstra crew who hung about around the Telstra stage and at
the marquee in Peel street! They were amazing! So supportive,
helpful and took the edge off the nerves! Ask any other
contestant (A special thanks to Sue - not sure of her last name, but
she reminded me of my aunty and was so lovely and she bought a cd!
