This January, in boots, a flanny and cowboy hat, Jenny Biddle hit the Tamworth Country Music Festival for the first time.
Jenny joined the other 500 buskers that built up a storm on Peel St for the 9 days of the festival. In 35°C heat, Jenny set up her busking rig outside Jeans West on Peel St each day, and introduced her tunes to the hundreds and thousands that attended this year’s country music festival.
Out of 500 buskers from across the country, Jenny was selected in the top 10 to battle out the Busking Championships. Performing her award winning Chest of Drawers and a bluesy version of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean, Jenny won Runners Up in the Tamworth Country Music Festival Busking Championships (non-country category). Queensland group The Twine won first place in the non-country category, and Shahnae Pakoti won the country category.
Jenny looks forward to performing at Tamworth in 2012.
