Tamworth to pay tribute to Slim Dusty

January’s Tamworth Country Music Festival will pay tribute to Australian country music pioneer Slim Dusty to mark the 10th anniversary of his passing.

Events include the unveiling of a bronze statue of Dusty and wife Joy McKean in the town, an exhibition of Dusty’s personal memorabilia, footage and photos at Festival Headquarters and a tribute concert.

“Slim left behind an incredible legacy through his music, his numerous awards and the artists that he mentored and supported,” said Tamworth Region mayor Col Murray. “It is a lasting legacy that continues to grow and this is our way of acknowledging and honouring a pioneer of the country music industry and our great festival.”
