I rate this bloke as one of Australia's best Balladeers- Traditional Australian Country Music artist Jeff Brown believes that a good bush ballad tells a story that will touch the heart of everyday Aussies. Jeff delivers these stories in song with quality and sincerity. he is the real deal! Winning a couple of Golden Guitar Awards for Bush Ballad of the Year in 2014 and 2005 gives testimony to his talents.
Bony Mountain has certain elements that make it special - and the Warwick Pipe Thistle Band is one. They are an iconic part of the festival. It is traditional they do a march in - pipes piping, drummers drumming, splendid in their tartan kilts, and often all lit up! They bring so much each and every year. We appreciate their effort, their playing and their dedication.
Norma invites you all to join her at her place! Soak up the bush and all it has to offer. The perfect retreat, for a lay back, relaxed week. This year Norma, a much traveled International artist and award winner (now retired), no longer tours- Norma has been described as a national treasure and has won many awards- an Aria finalist- several Golden Guitars, Australian Celtic Artist of the year in 2014 and many more. Norma's story is a long one, but after forty + years her songs are still on the charts. Her recent release ‘Cowboys” is the current flavour of the month both here & in the USA and Canada. And (Drifting Down The Darling) on the charts currently. Norma's web site will be back up & running soon! Norma's brand new single (Kosciusko) dedicated to our Brumbies, will be launched at the Festival! with a very rare (live) performance. Bony Mountain is the only place you'll catch a live performance!

Don’t miss the Sunday performance put on by his many students. Don’t forget to bring your ukelele!
Brian is a one of a kind. He started his musical career late in life, but don't be fooled, he is a creative grass roots singer/songwriter who really draws in a crowd. He is one of the best. His song -Corn, Potatoes & Sheep is a classic. Really got our crowd going last year! plays a cool banjo! Norma & Brian will be doing a Duet this year!
Steve is our sound engineer again for 2023. We are excited to welcome him back! He is also a very capable guitarist and performer. His family originally arriving in Australia on the Scarborough, as part of the First Fleet, Steve’s family has a genetic disposition to making noise. Some with trucks & chainsaws, others branding cattle, milking cows or ploughing fields, but few have achieved what Steve has in the world of music. Call him Country, Bluegrass, Folk, Swing or Country Rock - his music is eclectic. With a growing list of awards, including a coveted Golden Guitar, to his name, Steve proves that persistence and passion pays off! An independent musician with many “strings to his bow” Steve is based in Sydney.
