We’re really excited to have Pete back in Alex for the 2023 Alexandra Truck, Ute & Rod Show.
Hailing from the Northern Victorian town of Yackandandah, Pete Denahy is a comedian and a bluegrass musician, he’s a songwriter and singer whose also runs his own travel company specializing in music tours around the globe.
He blends fiddle tunes, bluegrass style original songs and madcap
comedy to provide the audience with an escape from reality most of them feel is
worth their while.
Pete cut his teeth with the Ploughboys in Melbourne in the mid
90’s and went on to tour as fiddle player and comic with Slim Dusty, Sara
Storer and Troy Cassar Daley in the early 2000’s before focusing on his solo
career. And a successful solo career it has been to date with five Golden
Guitars, Australian Country Music’s highest award and being in constant demand
for appearances the length and breadth of the country.
Bobby Gone Country
It’s safe to say that Craig Lloyd has led a colourful life. He began his adult career as a Police Officer, working the streets of London before advancing to Scotland Yard. Seeking new experiences, he relocated to Australia, worked for the police force, ambulance services, then the Melbourne Metro Fire Brigade.
He met his now wife, had a family, towed a caravan exploring Australia, before settling in rural Victoria in a small country town called Alexandra. This is where he discovered his ‘other side’ and after a ‘Taste of Tamworth’ concert in the local town hall spoke with Lyn Bowtell who encouraged him to apply to the Academy of Country Music. He was accepted and headed off to start his newest adventure – country music.
The rest is history and we’re looking forward to Craig coming home to Alexandra for the 2023 Truck Show!
