BIG SLIM DUSTY THEME!

Celebrating the (Life & Legacy) of our greatest master Balladeer Slim Dusty. We welcome Slims family Members- with two big Slim Dusty Family Shows- with Anne Kirkpatrick- Dianne Lindsay & maybe a special guest. Saturday night & Sunday morning from 11am- featuring two original members of Slims (Travelling Country Band)  Mike Kerin & Rod Coe-Slims Producer. There is a Slim Dusty Exhibition- a Slim Dusty Gallery and this will be your chance to come along & honour Slim-this bloke who from humble beginnings put real Aussie music on the map! We are honouring him with a big Sandstone Memorial unveiling that on Saturday- and I think we need to show Slim's family how much he was loved & indeed still is in not only Queensland, but all over Australia. It is true I think we often don't realize how precious our Pioneers are ! and what a legacy Slim has left us- his music-his passion for Australia -all so obvious in every song- in every story- I myself personally have only really come to appreciate Slims enormous contribution in recent years ! and just love his songs-so many I've never heard! with our very own Bony Mountain Radio Station imminent I am planning on having a complete Slim Dusty show- once a week- devoted to Slims music-or related songs & stories!  I am excited about sharing our big weekend with you all ! our eighth Bony Mountain Festival-   so do book in- or just rock up at the gate!  Luv Norma xx   

Supporting our dedicated Life Flight team in Queensland.

Since Bony Mountain began in 2011-we have supported various local groups- Southern Cross Care- Young Care-and Care Flight. We have raised approx $6000 with just raffles- and it is amazing how well we have done really-because we struggle every year to make ends meet! But this year we are now a registered (Not For Profit) incorporated body & I am determined we will surpass all we have ever achieved toward our fundraising efforts! Our dedicated raffle team (Aub & Robyn) will be at Rose City again for 2018 from July -so please support us !  Or just google Life Flight & make a donation direct online ! We never know when any of us may need their life saving helicopter/plane or dedicated team they are often the first on the scene at road accidents and disasters ,we would be lost without them.

The Celtic Connection and our family history.

It surely is a strong one! my Mothers family were The Hungerfords, a very influencial family in British History. Much to my surprise ! our illustrious ancestors built a Castle known as (Farleigh  Hungerford Castle) back in 1370 .Sir Thomas Hungerford built this medieval Castle & its a long story but they lived there for over 600 years off and on. ! Some of them fought with the Kings at the battle of Argincourt, some of them followed Cromwell & met their demise! Sir Thomas was the very first speaker of the house of commons in the British Parliment! It is a very colourful & well documented history. It is described as the most significant Medieval Castle in England as it is at Somerset ,the actual family crypt contains the marble effigys of the two Original Hungerfords! And I do intend to research it well & put a lot of it into songs & poetry. Another big project! but one I will relish!
