Dynamic local singer Lynda Beazely scooped the pool at the Orana Country Music Talent Quest.
Performing solo and with singing partner Vicki Picton, Lynda took out no less than seven placings on her way to winning the overall junior title of the highly-contested competition at the weekend.
Contestants travelled from as far afield as Miles in Queensland, Canberra and Newcastle to participate in what is rapidly becoming recognised as one of the best talent quests in the State.
“We had so many people compliment us on the quality of the backing band and the excellent venue, “Orana Country Music Association secretary Narelle Gibbs said.
“Having the luxury of Shane Saffy, Chris Johnson, Ken Yeo and Peter Riley as our backing band gives us a real edge that other talent quests don’t have. Having the use of the old RSL cinema was a real bonus too – it is an excellent facility for this type of event.”
A special guest performance was given by Dubbo’s Michelle Little, a previous winner of the talent quest now studying at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
