It’s a big year this year for Bony Mountain Folk Festival! There is a big Slim Dusty tribute- A Celebration of the life & legacy of Slim Dusty. Slim toured the length and breadth of Queensland with his caravan and his wife Joy McKean, so where better than Bony Mountain! Joy is going to try to attend this year. Norma and Slim shared two Golden Guitar wins -with Paddy William in 2001- and Cattle Dog which was Slim’s very last Golden Guitar- in 2003. Norma will perform these at the festival.
