Let­ton set to per­form

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Queen’s Birthday honour recipents -

Tam­worth-based coun­try mu­sic artist Brian Let­ton will per­form at Hor­sham RSL this month and will re­turn in 2019 for the 12th Hor­sham Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

Re­gional artist Cyn­thia Lawrance will sup­port Let­ton at a din­ner show at the RSL on June 21 and a morn­ing melodies ses­sion the fol­low­ing day.

Tick­ets for both shows are now on sale at the RSL.

The din­ner and show costs $33 and morn­ing melodies, $14.

Hor­sham Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val co-or­di­na­tor Lyall Wheaton has an­nounced artists for the 12th Hor­sham Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, from March 21 to 24.

The line-up in­cludes: Laura Down­ing and Kiara Ro­drigues from Bris­bane; Jo­hanna He­mara and Brian Let­ton, Tam­worth; Dwayne Elix, Syd­ney; Peter Coad and the Coad Sis­ters from Bun­danoon, NSW; and Justin Stan­d­ley, Don Costa, Sandie Dodd, Col Perkins, Trevor Keilar and Ge­or­gia and Lachie Mc­gen­nisken from Vic­to­ria.

Mr Wheaton last month set an Oc­to­ber-novem­ber dead­line for in­di­vid­u­als or or­gan­i­sa­tions to come for­ward to res­cue the an­nual event.

He made the dec­la­ra­tion af­ter Hor­sham Coun­try Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion chair­man Colin Mor­rell an­nounced that the event’s fu­ture was in doubt beyond 2019.

Mr Mor­rell said the fes­ti­val had be­come in­se­cure with Mr Wheaton’s de­ci­sion to step down as co-or­di­na­tor, an is­sue am­pli­fied by ad­vice that other com­mit­tee mem­bers, many of them in their 70s, also planned to re­tire.

He went as far as say­ing the 2019 Hor­sham Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val would be the last un­less the as­so­ci­a­tion could find a new co-or­di­na­tor.
