It’s March and it’s still all about Tamworth for us. We loved everything about Tamworth and quickly discovered that  there weren’t enough hours in the day. We’d pour over the 30 page program each night, trying to decide who to see from the  hundreds of performers listed at  70 odd venues, as well as performing ourselves.  Spent a lot of time walking Peel Street to check out the Buskers and collapsing outside of coffee and cake shops. We were "discovered?”  We had no great expectation other than to perform as part of the SACCM Showcase contingency.  After 9 days all I can say is we had a lot of fun ... “we discovered Tamworth”.

Opening the SACCM Showcase with a 20 minute set; “By a Living Thing” Semi Finalist in the Contemporary Country Music Section; Watching the greats Beccy Cole; Kasey Chambers; Sarah Storey, John Williamson, Troy Casser Daley, Adam Brandt; Meeting Anne Kirkpatrick (Slim Dusty’s daughter); Interview with Frank McHugh live to air on Festival FM 101.5; Tamworth Council for the $1200 litter fine pardon (wot the??? ); Busking with Chooka Williams; Performing at Craig Giles & Friends Show; Andrew Clermont’s Ladies Supper Show, talent quests at The Pub; Coca-Cola Open Mike and Battle of the Bands; Feedback  “What’s taken you so long to get here…’d better come back again  (Coca Cola Battle of the Band Talent Quest judge) and “We’re looking forward to hearing your music”….(TSA Showcase); Getting Listed in the  artists 2010 Official Guide; Watching Extreme Sports events National Rodeo  & the Line Dancing; Catching up with Chris Callaghan & Scott Dawson (The Goodies); $6 membership at the West’s Leagues Club; Great new music from “Lonesome Train” and “The Basics” (thanks Macca); The Agent who requested the Texettes Press Kit;  The Weather;  the hundreds of Peel Street  Buskers; the Tamworth Olympic Size Pool but not Mary’s 6am alarm; Terry & Teresa’s Tabouli ; Team Ellis’ Bacon & Eggs; Texettes live at Amaroo - our last night and Tamworth itself ...we’ll be back!

Thanks to Friends of the Texettes for the great send off; the Texettes Trailers who came along for the ride, Team Ellis, Mary, Teresa, Dom, Anthony and Daniell for outstandign support.   

Congratulations Terry! The song, “By a Living Thing” made the semi finals of TSA's 2010 Professional Contemporary Section of the National Country Songwriting Contest.  It's the first track on our new album "Sure Fire Cure", to be release in April 2010. The album has received heads up  from Mike Parkes (88.7 Coast FM’s Kicking Country  ) who feels that there are  possibly “two potential hits” …. “It’s the most Texettes album yet”.                            

One last word, have a Tamworth experience yourself!  See for Tamworth photos.  Videos will be up on Youtube real soon!              

Cheers, Helen, Terry and Dale
