Friday 11 December - Paul Wookey and Tony J. KingPaul Wookey is a distinctive singer and songwriter who has toured extensively throughout Australia with occasional international forays. His music sits somewhere between folk, blues and country music with Irish, American and Australian flavours.
In 1981 Paul won the prestigious Best New Artist Award at the Tamworth Country Music Festival and has been recognized for the quality of his songs. His "One Way Ticket" album received extensive airplay on Radio National. Glenn A. Baker said the album contained a collection of "powerful and important Australian songs". His latest album "I Wish It Would Rain" was released in 2004.
Tony J. King. Having grown up in the ‘Northern Badlands’ of South Australia (and now a local), Tony J King creates ramshackle music that has roots in the blues, jazz and folk sounds of the forties and fifties. He is also the ‘King’ in Lily & The King.
With a few stories, an old guitar, half a drum kit (or old suitcase), Tony J King has had decades of experience in order to perfect, change and shift his unique style of blues ‘n’ roots.
