Murwillumbah country roots festival finishes up strong

The Festival was headlined by country sweetheart Kasey Chambers, and included The Audreys, Sara Storer, Shane Howard, Archie Roach, Busby Marou, Bill Chambers, Henry Wagons and Richard Clapton.

The festivals organiser was Lou Bradley a veteran of the Australian country music scene.

Bradley has been part of the scene for over 10 years, has released four albums and scored ARIA and Golden Guitar nominations and is fiercely passionate about the local industry.

"Throughout my career as a writer and music lover, I have stood by what I believe is real music - music that has deep roots," she said.

"I've also been very lucky to build strong relationships with many artists along the way to share this love. That's why I chose them to play at my festival."
