Alisha, Caitlyn and I did our first show with our mate Reg Poole OAM at Coonabarabran in a church hall which was arranged by Sharron Jamieson. (We think maybe we are related, still looking). We had a great little crowd there but Alisha and I were both crook so thanks to Reg and Caitlyn for carrying the show. Thanks also to Sharron and Peter for their hospitality while we were there and Brian from the local radio.
We then headed over the hill to Goulburn to meet up with Dianne and Peter who were great people to tour with. Thanks to Brian Annetts. We played sixteen shows in eighteen days (14 with Pete and Di). After Goulburn we performed at Wolumla hall near Bega to a great crowd. Thanks to Karen and all her team. Sorry I was a bit crook but we will be back.

''FAIR DINKUM COUNTRY '' ON TOUR...UPDATE October
What a great trip we are having around Australia again. This is our third lap and still enjoying it more and more, we have a beautiful country.
Reg Poole and his lovely wife Dot are travelling with us and loving it. This is their first tour up in the Territory and the Kimberley and will be their first time across Nullabor.
We have had some great shows since starting at Casino which we started on a sad note with the passing of Shorty Ranger. Alisha, Caitlyn and I attended Shorty’s Funeral at Kempsey.
Our Shows have taken in Clubs, Caravan Parks, Aboriginal Communities and Hotels with great distances between some shows and we have met a lot of nice people.

We have only been knocked back from playing at one Caravan Park which was the Fitzroy River Lodge Caravan Park at Fitzroy Crossing, due to some noise freak the night before we got there or so they say. Our new CD "Our Bush Ballad Family" is going well as is Reg Poole’s CD's.
<< Keith and Alisha
Reg was surprised at the amount of Aboriginal People that know and love his music from The Desert Shows to Broome. You meet a lot of different people from all walks of life while you are travelling and you break in more new people to Bush Ballad Music. ( Reg Poole >>>>)
I released my new song Barn Hill Station at Barn Hill to a great response.
Reg has been doing well with his new tribute song to Slim Dusty written by Barney O'Donnell from WA and the Bull song written by Trevor Day and Chainsaw by Tom McIvor.
<<< Bush Clothes Line _ Reg Poole)
Alisha has been playing a lot of her new Instrumentals from "Our Bush Ballad Family".
Soon we will be heading into to SA, to Narrawong and Warrnambool Vic., across to Tassy to do seven shows and on our way back up through the Gippsland from Yallourn bowls to Bairnsdale RSL. Then Goulburn Railway Bowls and Eagles Nest Christian Centre at Yass then up to Hexham Bowls, Wauchope RSL, Powerhouse Motel Kempsey, Redcliffe Country Music Club other venues in October to be confirmed and finishing our tour on 28th October at Widgee Balladeers Muster.
(>> Alisha and Ringer Sam)

We have had Graham and Debbie Snow with us on the tour who have been a great help and we would all like to thank them. They had their huge motor home and four wheel drive in tow and got to have a look at a piece of Australia they hadn't seen before.

On behalf of all of us, a big thankyou to everyone around Australia who helped with the tour, all the venues, radio presenters and to everyone for their wonderful hospitality.

Hope to catch up with you all around the ridges somewhere,

Pt. 2. Around Australia Tour 2005
We had a great tour. We were on the road for about 7 months of the year, first with Jeff Brown and Sharon Smith and then later in the year we went around Australia again with Rick & Cathy.  We spoke about some of our tour earlier on the site,  at the time we were about halfway through the tour and in WA.  After we left there we headed out across the Nullabor to perform several shows in SA at Lock, Pt Pirie, Wilmington, Nuriootpa, Moonta and Hindmarsh Valley.  We had some great support from the SA people and really enjoyed performing over there.  We then called in at the Mildura festival for a few days and caught up with some of our mates who were performing at the festival.  We did a guest spot on Warren Mahoney's show at Apex Park which is a great venue for bush ballads.

From there we performed at Robinvale where Wave Jackson was a special guest artist on his way home from Mildura.  We then did a show at Narrawong in Victoria and left our caravans with Alby and Joan Martin at Koroit before heading over to Tassie on the Spirit of Tasmania for two weeks.  We had a great time in Tassie once again with some great hospitality from Pam & Brian Lewis and Gaylene and Maurie Faulkner.  We had 7 good shows in Tassie with great support from the people at Lindisfarne, Huonville, Bruny Island, Tam O'Shanter, Launceston, Ulverstone and Deloraine.

After Tassie we headed back to Koroit via the Great Ocean Road to pick up the vans and perform at Warrnambool, which was organised for us by our friends Ron & Jan Morgan.  We then showed at Traralgon, then onto Bairnsdale Country Music Club where we had a great crowd and our special guest artists were Lindsay & Gail Hammond and Les Willams.  Then we were on the home run, as we started to make our way north, performing at Wagga Wagga, Yass, Canberra and Goulburn.  We had a few days off so we called in and stayed a couple of nights with Ted & Merelyn Olive at Maitland while Rick & Cathy spent some time on the coast at Woy Woy. 

Then we headed up the coast to perform at Wauchope with Ken "Chainsaw" Lindsay as our guest artist.  We were very privileged to have the legendary Shorty Ranger and his fiddle player Darrell Turnbull and young balladeer Amos Morris on our show at the Powerhouse Motel at Kempsey which was organised by Bob Campaign & Jillian.  It's a great little venue if any other balladeers are looking to perform in Kempsey. We had a great show once again in Kyogle the following night, thanks to Lyn Manning.  Matt Manning and Jeff Gibson performed on the show as well as "Tappin' Teddy Thompson".  We got to catch up with Jim Laffin & Marion Dargusch, also Frank & Kath Early who travelled down to Kyogle for the show.  We then travelled up to Wynnum in Brisbane where Julie Perandes was our guest artist for the afternoon, it's great to see Julie still performing bush ballads and thanks to Jean for organising the show.

Our last show for the tour was at Pittsworth near Toowoomba where we had a huge supportive crowd of about 250 people.  Jeff Brown, Sharon Smith & Ted Thompson all performed and the show was compered by a legend of radio and rodeo Mr Ted Hintz.  Thanks to Marion once again for looking after the door for us.  It was a great feeling to be finished the tour and on our way home again after four and a half months straight on the road and 28000 km's.  Thanks to everyone who supported the shows and helped organise the shows, a few people we haven't mentioned are Alan & Natalie Cunningham, Laurel & Niffy Robinson, Natalie & Barney Pearce, Merv Schapell, Glyn & Rosemary Squires, Lois Holland, Bill McIntyre, Molly Leary, David Shaw, Ray Bean, Nancy & Allan Evans, Peter & Meroli Wicks, John Goode, Wayne Brennan, Brian Annetts, Joy & Max Lewis, and big thankyou to Ros Scotney, Stan & Carol.  Also Chris Jensen, Dennis O'hara, Wayne Shearman, all the crew at 4DDB and many other community radio presenters and ABC early morning presenters around Australia.  Thanks to all involved with the ABBA for their support over the past year.


PT. 1. Around Australia Tour 2005.  We started our tour on the 24th June at Chinchilla QLD and continued on to Warwick, then Tent Hill Hotel where we had a great show and launched Keith's new album, "Songs From a Bush Ballad Pen" and his autobiography "Life's Highway".  "Songs From a Bush Ballad Pen" is an album of Joe Daly's poems which Keith put tunes to and features the last recorded lead guitar of the late Paul Lester.   We also launched Rick & Cathy's brilliant new album "Through Our Eyes", which was recorded at Regency Sound by Marc Lea.

From there we headed up the QLD coast playing at Maryborough, Bundaberg, Rockhampton and Mackay to some very appreciative audiences.  Then it was out west to Capella and Blackall, where we caught up with Bill Coleman, then Isisford where we stayed with Kevie and Dolly Woodlands, Winton, Mt Isa, then onto the Barkly Homestead where we played for a couple of nights.  We did a couple of shows in Katherine at the Katherine Country Club and Crossways Hotel and spent a bit of time with some of the committee of the Katherine Country Music Muster.  In Katherine we met up with John and Margaret Staunton from Millmerran who are travelling around Australia for 12 months.  John does a lot of the cooking for the Camp Oven Festival at Millmerran.  They travelled with us right across the Kimberley and down to Eighty Mile Beach.  We really appreciated their help at the shows where they did the door and looked after our CD's, they are great people and we'll miss them (and John's good cooking)  for the rest of our trip. Pic above: L-R: Margaret Staunton, Keith, Alisha, Rick & Cathy and John Staunton at Barn Hill Station WA

We then went across to Timber Creek where we had a great show and then to Wyndham where we played with Bruce Johnson and his boys at the hotel.  Bruce is a great lead guitarist who plays in the style of Barry Thornton.  From there we played at Warmun Community, then stopped for a night at the Mary Pool rest area between Halls Creek and Fitzroy Crossing where we decided to do a show using 2 generators to power the equipment. It was a beautiful setting right on the banks of the river under some beautiful big old gum trees.  We met some lovely people there who we kept running into right down to Eighty Mile Beach. We stayed a few nights at Fitzroy Crossing where we played at the Fitzroy River Lodge and also the caravan park.   We also performed at a few aboriginal communities around Fitzroy - Bayulu, Wantkatjunka, Noonkanbah and Yakanarra with the help of  Martin Smiler and family, also Ronnie and Andrew.  Andrew took us on a tour of Mimbi Caves (between Halls Creek and Fitzroy Crossing) which are absolutely beautiful. Pic Above Right: Rick, Cathy,Alisha, & Keith at Mary Pool Rest Area WA

We spent a week at Derby playing for the tourists at the Kimberley Entrance Caravan Park where Ian and Julie looked after us, then went onto the Broome Caravan Park and played there for four nights, thanks to Graham and Donna.  We caught up with our great mates Ginger and Marie Cox in Broome who were great friends of Barry Thornton.  Ginger is a great lead guitarist as well and plays in the same style as Barry.  He took us up to play at the Beagle Bay Community, north of Broome where we met some lovely people and got to see a beautiful old church which was built in 1917 and has all pearl shells inlaid into the walls and floor.

 From Broome we travelled about 130kms south to Barn Hill station, which has a caravan park which overlooks the ocean with beautiful cliff faces.  It's a beautiful spot and a lot of tourists from down south go up there for  a few months of the year to escape the cold weather.  We played there for 2 nights and had a great time, Keith loved it so much that he is writing a song about the place.  We spent a couple of nights playing at Eighty Mile Beach and then had to say goodbye to the Stauntons as we headed south through Port Hedland, playing at Carnarvon and Geraldton then down to Perth, where we played at Balga with the help of Ken Lindley.  We had a great show at the South Coast Country Music Club at Albany, which was organised by Dulcie & Trevor and all the crew. 
We also had the pleasure of catching up with Rick Carey at our Albany show where Keith sang a song he had just finished writing about him and his days as "Cousin Ratsack".  After that we performed at Narrogin, York and Northam with the help of some great people - Sandra O'Neill and Ken and Pauline Tillbrook.  We are now still in York for a few days and spending a bit of time with Ken & Pauline.
Pic Left: L-R: Keith Jamieson, Rick Carey,and Alisha Smith.

We will start heading east across the Nullabor and into SA where we will be performing at several venues for a couple of weeks including Lock, Wilmington, Pt Pirie, Nuriootpa and Victor Harbour, then to the Mildura Festival and down to the bottom of Victoria to Narrawong.  Then it's over to Tassie on the boat for two weeks where we will do six shows.  We are looking forward to that as we enjoyed our trip over there in February and Rick & Cathy haven't been there before. After Tassie we will perform at Warrnambool, Traralgon and Bairnsdale, then start heading north up through Wagga Wagga, Yass, Canberra and Goulburn then over to the coast where we will work our way up through Wauchope, Kempsey, Kyogle and Wynnum.  The tour will culminate in a big concert at Pittsworth Town Hall with special guests Jeff Brown and Sharon Smith, which will be compered by Ted Hintz, radio announcer from the early Hoedown days on 2TM.  This show is being organised by our good mate Ros Scotney and will be on Sunday afternoon 6th November.

 We would like to thank everyone who helped us organise our tour and supported the shows right around Australia, there are too many people to mention you all but we do appreciate all of your help.  We look forward to catching up with you all at the Frog and Toad in Tamworth 2006.

Yours With an Aussie Song,

BIO


KEITH JAMIESON
Background
Born in Goondiwindi, Keith Jamieson has spent most of his life in the bush, which is where he gets most of his inspiration for songwriting. Keith leans towards the bush ballad style of writing and recording, following in the footsteps of our pioneers such as Stan Coster, Slim Dusty, Tony Brooks, Tom Oliver and Joe Daly.
Songwriter
Keith has written some classic songs over the years, some of which have been recorded by Slim Dusty, Jeff Brown, Sharon Heaslip, Nathan Charlton, Charmaine Pout, Dave Reynolds, Noel Smith and Bev Branson. One of his most successful songwriting efforts being The Ghost of Three Rivers, which was a huge hit for Jeff Brown and has won awards such as TSA Bush Ballad of the Year 2003 and the Tasmania and New Zealand Songwriting Award Recorded Section 2002. It also made the finals of Mildura 2002, Bungendore 2003 and the 2003 Golden Guitar Awards.
Recording Artist
Keith's album Troy's Memory, was produced by Lindsay Butler at LBS Studios and has received widespread airplay. The first single One Tree Plain, which was written by Tony McKenna raced up the Australian Country Charts to number six and earned him a finalist spot in the 2003 TIARA Awards. The latest recording by Keith is a tribute to Barry Thornton and his sidekick Mulga Dan, which he wrote before Bazza passed away and had intended to record with Barry but sadly that wasn't to be. "The Ballad of Mulga Dan" has recently won the Open Section of the Tasmania & New Zealand Songwriting Awards 2003 and is receiving a lot of airplay right around Australia. Keith also came third in the Recorded section of these awards with "Tex, Buddy & Slim".
Albums
Keith has three albums available: The Year 2000 Australian Bushman, Troy's Memory, Bush Ballads Forever also the EP The Ballad Of Mulga Dan. He also has a single available called The Roma Oil Rig Man.
Future Plans
Keith hopes to continue writing and recording bush ballads for many years to come and also encourages people young or old to carry on the bush ballad tradition.
