Cow­boy hats as far as the eye can see

ABOUT 500 pun­ters and 140 car­a­van­ers made their way to the Lai­d­ley Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val last week.

Event or­gan­iser Ken Maguire said it was one of the best crowds they’d had yet.

“The whole week has been re­ally good and ev­ery­one re­ally en­joyed the per­for­mances,” Mr Maguire said.

High­light­ing the fes­ti­val were na­tional artists Laura Down­ing, Jeff Brown, Pete Smith, Trevor Tolton and Ken Mel­low and the Innes kids, who all played on the main stage.

An­other high­light of the fes­ti­val was the walk-up con­cert with Greg Dil­lon.

“Any­one who wanted to sing got up and had a go and there were plenty of tal­ented lo­cal singers,” Mr Maguire said.

“It was a good op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal singers that per­haps haven’t been dis­cov­ered yet.

“We had around 35 to 40 walk-up artists over the week.

“We’d also like to say a huge thank you to all the lo­cal busi­nesses that made gen­er­ous do­na­tions for our daily raf­fle.”
