Lind­say But­ler at Bororen

The Observer - - NEWS -

THIS week­end Bororen Hall will ring with mu­sic as the Lind­say But­ler Show rolls into town.

Among them will be Than­g­ool mu­si­cian Ash­ley Cook (pic­tured) who met Lind­say in 2003 in Tam­worth.

“Lind­say But­ler no­ticed me and asked if I wanted to help him record a trib­ute al­bum to Slim Dusty,” he said.

“Lind­say was Slim’s lead gui­tarist for 17 years and he did a lot of work on his al­bums.”

With over 40 years on the pro­fes­sional mu­sic cir­cuit, Lind­say has been ti­tled the ‘The Mas­ter of Coun­try Gui­tar’.

“Lind­say and his wife Shaza Leigh have been mak­ing records for 25 years on the LBS la­bel,” Ash­ley said.

“I think he’s up to 170 al­bums he pro­duced.”

Join­ing Lind­say, Ash­ley and Shaza Leigh on stage will be Peggy Gilchrist the Queen of the Coun­try Pi­ano, the first fe­male to record a full solo al­bum of coun­try pi­ano in­stru­men­tals..

“Lind­say was awarded the Or­der of Aus­tralia for his work in coun­try mu­sic,” Ash­ley said.

“For us to be on-stage with him is great, he teaches a craft and that’s some­thing I can pass on.

“His show is very pro­fes­sional, but when we get a good crowd it al­ways gives us a buzz.

“If you didn’t like the mu­sic, you wouldn’t do it.”

The Lind­say But­ler Show will be ap­pear­ing at the Bororen Hall to­mor­row at 2pm.

Tick­ets are $25, chil­dren un­der 10 free and sup­per is avail­able for $5.
