The Rise and Rise of Josh

Who: Josh Canning
Where: Maitland Ex-Services Club
When: Wednesday August 7, 2002

ONE young Hunter music star looks set to become one of Australia's biggest musical talents.

Newcastle country musician JOSH CANNING recently returned from a stint at the inaugural TAMWORTH CAMERATA. The Camerata gives budding country performers under the age of 17 the chance to polish their skills.

Canning was selected from applicants from all around Australia and New Zealand and was the only artist from the Hunter to be invited to join 30 others.

During his time at the school, the 17-year-old took part in five days of extensive workshops with big names from the Australian country music industry.

Canning had the chance to learn from LYN BOWTELL, BECCY COLE, STUART FRENCH, JOAN DOUGLAS, GREG WILLIAMS, CLARE O'MEARA and THE FERAL SWING CATS. Plans are already under way for Canning to record his first album.

Catch Canning in action at the HORSESHOE BEND ROUNDUP at the MAITLAND EX-SERVICES BOWLING CLUB on Wednesday nights.
