Bobkatz Country Music Band Australia
The genre has been influenced by Celtic and English folk music, the Australian bush ballad tradition, as well as by popular American country music. Themes include outback life, the lives of stockmen, truckers and outlaws, songs of romance and of political protest and songs about the “beauty and the terror” of the Australian bush Early pioneers included Slim Dusty, Smoky Dawson (MBE), (OAM), Tex Morton and Buddy Williams all members of the Australasian Roll Of Renown.
Slim Dusty, AO MBE (born David Gordon Kirkpatrick; 13 June 1927 – 19 September 2003) was an Australian country music singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer. Slim Dusty “released more than a hundred albums, selling more than seven million records and earning over 70 gold and platinum album certifications”.
He was the first Australian to have a No. 1 international hit song, with a version of Gordon Parsons’ “A Pub with No Beer”. He received an unequalled 45 Golden Guitar and an Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) awards. The distinctive themes and origins of Australia’s bush music can be traced to the songs sung by the convicts who were sent to Australia during the early period of the British colonisation, beginning in 1788.
