Taylor performs with LEE KERNAGHAN in Tamworth

Taylor had the most amazing time in Tamworth, Australia’s Country Music Capital. “I just love Tamworth. It’s my favourite place in Australia. I have been going to the festival for the past four years and I will go every year. I love it!”

 

This year Taylor performed at 15 shows including “Tamworth Shopping World”, “The First Queens of Country” show, “Johanna Hemara’s Yodelling Show”, “A.B.B.A. Yodelling Spectacular”, “Andrew Clermont’s Supper Club Shows”, “Pete Denahy Bluegrass Breakfast”, “City Roots live from Tamworth”, “TSA Songwriters”, “Runaway Dixie Show”, “Rod Williams Independent Showcase”, “Young Stars of Country”, “SA Showcase” and “Toyota Concert for Rural Australia” with LEE KERNAGHAN!!

Taylor interviewed Multi Golden Guitar Winner and 2008 Australian of the Year, Lee Kernaghan, at the ABC Radio New England North West, Tamworth studios on Thursday the 24th of January, thanks to Lisa Herbert. The interview was broadcasted throughout Australia on Saturday Night Country and ABC National. “When I woke up that morning I was quite nervous but as soon as I saw Lee, my nerves went away. He is so nice and easy to talk to. We even have lots of things in common like both of our Grandparents were Drovers. We sang & played “Boys from the Bush” and a famous banjo instrumental by Earl Scruggs “Foggy Mountain Breakdown”. It was so much fun. I thoroughly enjoyed the interview. Then on-air Lee asked me whether I wanted to perform at his concert at Bi-Centennial Park on Friday 25th. I was so excited!!!!! I had the best night of my life, performing on a big stage in front of thousands of people. I still can’t believe this happened! I am so lucky!”

“I was also interviewed by ABC New England North West Reporter Lisa Herbert while I was busking in Peel Street Tamworth. I talked about my passion for banjo, yodelling, country and bluegrass music. It was great fun!”

“I also had a TV interview on ABC1 7pm News and ABC24, and was filmed for Nashville’s TV Show “Music City Roots” live from Tamworth.”  Taylor’s performance from Music City Roots can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RMK8fkL-rM

Another highlight from the Tamworth Country Music Festival was attending the Golden Guitar Awards on Australia Day. “My friend Rex Dallas gave me two tickets to the Golden Guitars. I was so excited!! It was such an honour to sit next to Rex at the Awards. He was nominated for a Golden Guitar. He is a fantastic yodeller and songwriter. Congratulations Rex on your nomination”

Taylor’s passion is country and bluegrass music and she’s already counting down the weeks until the 2014 Tamworth Country Music Festival. “Tamworth is my favourite part of the year. I love performing, busking, going to shows and meeting people from all over Australia who all love Country Music. I can’t wait to 2014!!”
