I spoke with the wonderful Patricia Cruzado from the Orana Country Music Club this week to source a country music artist for Sounds Live Acoustic. I've liaised with Patricia before when I worked as a music correspondent for AMRAP and produced a radio piece on country music. Well Patricia got on the blower straight away and did the rounds of the Club's members. Result, we have young Margie-May Hockey performing at Sounds Live Acoustic on Sunday. Margie-May was recently named Overall Junior Champion at the Macarthur Country Music Championships in June 2009. She was a finalist in the CCMA talent quest in both Best Young Talent Vocal 13 years and under and Junior Gospel 13 years and under, and was awarded the Barry Thornton Memorial Award for Best Young Talent, at Tamworth, January 2009. And that's not all...in 2007 Margie-May was invited by and performed with Troy Casser-Daley at his show in Dubbo at the Dubbo RSL, after he saw her perform in Tamworth at the festival that year. Catch Margie-May at Sounds Live Acoustic this Sunday.
