In a Tamworth Country Music Festival first – The Sheilas are taking over a club.
The North Tamworth Bowling Club will play host to a talented bunch of hard working female singer songwriters in a celebration of “left of centre” independent country music.
Featuring two alumni from the Academy of Country Music, Kate Oliver and Jess Holland, this concert will offer punters the rare opportunity to hear intimate performances from an all -female line up.
“It’s going to be an absolute joy to be on stage with some festival favourites and brilliant singer-songwriting women, particularly in a venue which allows audiences to really listen to the songs,” Oliver said.
Sheilas, The Renegade Women of Country Music is the brainchild of Gleny Rae, who audiences will know from many Tamworth appearances.
“It’s an intimate afternoon with some of Australia's finest female country music singer/songwriters on the first weekend of the Tamworth Country Music Festival. I picked these women because they are defying conventions, running their own race and producing incredible music from the heart” Rae said.
“I am constantly amazed by the talent, commitment and resilience of women in the music industry, who continue to forge their art despite the hurdles of the industry.”
Sheilas – The Renegade Women of Country Music will be held at the North Tamworth Bowling Club on Saturday, January 21 at 2pm until 4.30pm.
Tickets are $15, Concession $10 and kids free.
