Ma Ma Creek Festival - a grass roots event!
Norma O'Hara Murphy is the Co ordinator of Ma Ma Creek Festival- and it follows on the weekend that has been traditionally (The Tenthill Turnout). Which has been to pay tribute to Stan Coster & remember his music. How could we ever forget all those wonderful Coster songs! But this little Festival will take on its own personality I guess we will wait & see what we think you want the people who are gonna come & spend a night with us at Ma Ma Creek. I love my Bony Mountain Festival & I am excited about injecting some life back into this wonderful little place! But cannot do it alone-we need you all to come & join us and help make this brand new Festival a success- and a great weekend for all concerned! On this our first night we will be asking you -what you see for this Festival- what artists- what bands-what kind of music! I myself am determined to celebrate everything Australian- the best of the best I reckon! maybe some special Ma Ma Creek touches? make sure you come & enjoy! bookings -0490 415 699 -tickets at the door - only $20.
some of Norma's history-
Who better to put all this together than this Lady-Singer/Songwriter/Horsewoman/Camp Drafter/Gold Guitar winner & someone who has been there & done it all. This is the cover of Norma's first Country album- and the two first releases from Norma are a catalogue of her life and the people she knew & the horses she loved so well. Then came The Vanishing Horsemen- and it was this album that won Norma the coveted Heritage Award- How the Firequeen Crossed the swamp. and her very first Gold Guitar Award in 1986. A lifetime ago-but with 15 albums now under her belt-and more on the way-this timeless artist certainly continues to give her all. Ma Ma Creek will be a total Aussie experience- we can gaurantee you that! with Norma at the helm it will be something special- be sure to put it in your diary!
It will be an annual event - held on this weekend every year- May 26. at the wonderful Community Centre at Ma Ma Creek! 0490 415 699
Solid Gold -is an award winning album- Norma's latest country album & following in the tradition of those very first albums. A musical journey into the world of Rodeo- the Cutting arena- the world of Camp draft- our Pioneers & our Legends. It is a must for anyone who has ever loved a horse! It has been described as a masterpiece- by some of Norma's radio mates! go to Norma's personal web site to order from catalogue!
