BEING due to deliver a baby in a bit less than four weeks doesn’t stop Felicity Urquhart from performing at the 2013 Toyota Country Music Festival, Tamworth.
The former Tamworth singer-songwriter is due to have her second baby on about February 18 and is having a quieter festival than normal, but will still be getting on stage when she can.
This will be the second child for her and husband, Glen Hannah, who is known as a whiz in Australian country music circles as a photographer, graphic designer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, and a sibling for their daughter, Tia.
On Thursday, Felicity will join Jim Lauderdale at the Tamworth Town Hall for radio show Nashville City Roots, which is broadcasting from outside the US for the first time ever.
“On my last trip to the states, I did the radio show at the Loveless Cafe,” she said.
“Jim has also asked me to do a song on Friday with him at the Capitol Theatre and I’ll be performing at the awards with Tamara on Saturday night.”
Felicity said it was a no-brainer that Nashville City Roots should broadcast out of Tamworth because both cities were the country music capitals of their respective countries.
She is a finalist, with Tamara and Sara Storer, for two Golden Guitars and said she hoped it didn’t bring on labour if they won.
“Women In Song was a really nice thing to be part of,” she said.
Sara won’t be at the awards to perform the song with the other two singers as she has just had a baby boy in Darwin, called William or Billy.
