This weekend Jenny Biddle took out TWO awards in the busking competition at the Ballina Coastal Country Music Festival. After a weekend of busking on River St outside Just Funkin’ CD shop, with kids dancing at her feet, families and elderly gathering on the street to hear her songs, Jenny went on to win both the People’s Choice Award and the Judges Vote in the 2011 Busking Competition, and perform her all-time favourite Chest of Drawers, alongside country legend Troy Cassar-Daley, Golden Globe Nominee 8-ball Aitken, and local artist Jabiru.
Festival Coordinator, Carol Stacey put in a huge effort to get the festival happening, and a terrific turn out for its year, with 5000 festival goers across the weekend. Big thank you to Just Funkin’ CD for supporting Jenny across the weekend. Ballina locals can now purchase Jenny’s album, Chest of Drawers, from Just Funkin’.
