OUR FABULOUS UKULELE GROUP LAST YEAR-WITH MICK!

MY NEW CLYDESDALE BABY- MELODY- 6 MONTHS!

My latest news- so sorry to cancel the Festival- but too much stupidity out there!  My new knee is all done-just gotta lay low now & let it heal.  My first replacement is fantastic- for a My exciting news-is I have brought a Clydesdale filly-on my bucket list- she is only a baby yet- (Melody- love Autumn -so many jobs in the garden-repotting- planting- mulching- need a full time gardner here -(still looking for a Caretaker)  but Bony Mountain looks amazing now- all green & a total contrast to last year- after the long dry. We got another 35 ml this month- June- so my horses are very fat! no sign of frosts yet! PLEASE NOTE- MELODY IS THE BIG ONE IN FRONT! 

OUR FESTIVAL- JOBS-AND OUR GARDENS

We did have two construction projects this year- our Ukulele Shack- Mick has grown out of sitting on the log? he had over 20 students last year!  And we are hoping for a Fairy Castle/Cubby House for the Kids play area. Sadly our Volunteers group & Builder were coming from Victoria- so they could not come!  we are evolving every year- gathering more momentum as we go but this year has set us back a bit. Our Festival (Fairy Forest) looks amazing !  big thank you to Sue- what a champion- hundreds of gorgeous plants- Broliliads!  Have started gardens at the Festival site-quite a few Grevilias- natives- some tall river grasses- and lawns are well established now- -all is green now-so onward & upward! Some gorgeous purple Iris- I was given-are flowering! This is a gorgeous pink Azalea -they were in pots-flowering for our first Festival-looked amazing! but then they died? bit sad-thought they were hardy- maybe I'll try again ! but have stuck to natives so far-

MY RODEO COLLECTION -COMING SOON

My big release for 2021- now  is going back to Country in a big way- revisiting a lot of my classic old Rodeo Songs & ballads- written back when I was in the heart of it all- trying my hand at Campdrafting- mixing with some of the finest-Horsemen & women. Lucky enough to meet them-hear their stories-and share this with you! I wrote about RM Williams-after meeting RM and reading his book-  with a simple song (RM) I met the legend/the man- Stumpy- Stumpy Timmins-  won my first TSA Award with Stumpy.  -watched the Legendary Graeme Bagero- (Rodeo Clown). and marvelled at his skills as a clown. And of course I include some Campdraft songs -because the drafting goes hand in hand with the Rodeo events. Those years chasing the Campdrafting were amazing times-when I look back I feel very privaliged to have met some of our greatest Heroes & Legends.   Launching (volume one) next year sometime-  COVER shown

SOME OF OUR ARTISTS-

Norma -onstage ten years ago- for the very first Bony Mountain Festival back in 2011. It was a dream come true-for the Singer/Songwriter and fullfilled a lifetime ambition to create an all Aussie Festival in the bush-and invite everyone to come and share the experience- soak up the wonderful sense of being right in the heart of the bush & soak up all this wonderful music of Australia. Guess it is much more than that really-with Bluegrass-Folk-some American country-Celtic music-Celtic Dancing-Pipes-Drums- Ukulele Band- And Celebrating some great Aussie Songwriters! But this tenth Festival certainly is a reason to celebrate as we come out of all the horrors of the last year or so- Drought-Bushfires & Corona virus!  must be over with soon- VERY SAD TO HAVE NO FESTIVAL THIS YEAR!
