Country Singer Returns

Who: Wayne Horsburgh
Where: Newcastle Panthers
When: Friday December 15, 2000

UNITED States-based Australian country music performer WAYNE HORSBURGH fell in love with country music the first time he heard yodeller SLIM WHITMAN as a boy growing up in Benalla, Victoria.

Horsburgh, playing a free Friday concert this week at Club Nova Newcastle, formed his own dance band at the age of 11 and has never looked back.

The guitar-playing Aussie has toured the US, New Zealand, Britain and Australia, but Horsburgh received his biggest break in 1989 with a gig on the HODAG COUNTRY FESTIVAL in Wisconsin.

There he performed on the same stage as EMMYLOU HARRIS, THE OAKRIDGE BOYS and FREDDY FENDER and others. TE
