Dear Orphans at Tamworth Country Music Festival 2012!
26 Nov 2011

If you are heading to the Tamworth Country Music Festival in the new year, be sure to head along to see Dear Orphans!

There really is no excuse, because they will be playing two separate dates and they are both FREE! 

The band comprises singer-songwriters Nick Payne and Lyn Taylor, along with Mike Kirkley on pedal steel, "a big influence on our sound" according to Nick. Dear Orphans are also sometimes accompanied by clawhammer banjoist, Richard Galluzzi. 

“Our music persists in a way that other music doesn't. It has the ability to stick with you for a long time. We are influenced by traditional bluegrass,” says Nick. He adds: "What I love about bluegrass is that it's music written by people battling with real life. And sometimes the reasons they are writing and playing that music are to rise above that and set their sights on something higher."
