A continuing series of monthly Country Music shows that go under the banner of 'Canterbury Country'. On the second Thursday of each month at 8pm.
Enjoy the photos below from the first year of 'Canterbury Country'.
It was duet time in March when Wayne Horsburgh and Judy Anne Barnes yodelled in harmony, while Mary Heard and Keith Glass were 'Making Sweet Music Together' (their duet from Mary Heard & the Midwest Obsession's new album 'Happy Ever After'). Terry Murray played his guitar so fast that it sounded like a duet!
Sixties singing legend, Frank Ifield, in association with Galston Country Music Festival executives Tony and Vikki Page, presented The Frank Ifield Awards, including a Millenium Acheivement award to a surprised and delighted Wayne Horsburgh. Michael G. Carr and Karen O'Shea were the recipients of the Best New Male and Female Performer 2001 awards.
