Lindsay Butler at Bororen
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.
