ONE of the Tamworth Country Music Festival’s much-loved acts has delivered an intimate performance to some excitable fans.
Festival veterans the Wolverines took time out of their busy schedule on Tuesday to delight the Challenge Community Services crew.
The trio had the audience, consisting of people with an intellectual disability and Challenge staff, up on their feet as they belted out a few of their hits at the organisation’s Connexions site on Johnston St.
The boys then spent time signing autographs and mingling with the appreciative crowd.
Justin Price, who was lucky enough to get his hat signed by the band, said he loved watching the Wolverines erform as they were one of his favourite country music acts.
After 21 years playing at the Country Music Capital, this year’s festival marks the end of an era for the band after keyboard player and vocalist Chris Doyle signalled his decision to move on.
Mr Doyle thanked his loyal Wolverine fans and wished them all the best.
Drummer and vocalist John Clinton said Mr Doyle and lead vocalist and guitarist Darcy LeYear always welcomed the chance to give back to the Tamworth community.
