There are significant changes to talent quest activity in Tamworth this January with the Capital Country Music Association joining Tamworth Regional Council to return the majority of National Talent quest activities to the famous Tamworth Town Hall where it started all those years ago!
January 2018 will see the CCMA juvenile and the majority of junior and senior talent quest sections incorporated into the Coca-Cola "Battles" in the Tamworth Town Hall.
This will streamline the organisation of these activities and provide simpler options for entrants.
Juvenile and Junior sections of the talent quest will be incorporated into the BATTLE OF THE YOUNGSTARS.
Junior and Senior group/duo sections will be incorporated into the BATTLE OF THE BANDS.
And Senior vocal entrants (including Golden Oldies) will be catered for in a brand new event... BATTLE OF THE NEWSTARS
The CCMA will continue to run songwriting sections for junior and senior songwriters but this will be a different event at a different location. Full details of this will be announced here on Friday (December 1).
The only sections not being catered for specifically are junior and senior instrumental, sections which have been progressively diminishing in competitive popularity for a number of years. That said, the Town Hall activity will also be continuing to include BATTLE OF THE BLUEGRASS which could provide an outlet for hotshot musicians wanting to enter competitive activity.
For further information about all of the "Battle" activity – including access to enter – click here, or on the image at right. Spaces are likely to be limited so act now!
The Capital Country Music Association will continue to run our traditional Jamboree winners concert during the festival and will also return to the Town Hall. Details of this will be announced shortly.
