ANOTHER BIG MILESTONE IN NORMA'S CAREER

Launching her classic Rodeo Collection (volume one) -delayed til September this year- featuring some great new songs! very much a (Rodeo collection)  going back where it all began for this iconic Australian-the Horsewoman-the Songwriter-the Storyteller- some of the absolute classic songs that have won Norma so many devoted fans over the last fourty plus years! & Australias top Awards.  Norma still has a passion for horses-for Rodeo-and competed in Campdrafts for quite a few years-so the stories are all here from those early years. Plus some brand new songs-that are as good as it gets. Even the cover is a classic- not every day you see a pretty Lady sitting calmly on a Big Brahman Bull! June Underwood captured the moment in 2000 in Peel Street at the Peel Street Concerts-with Colorado- the Top UK band- the performances filled Peel st-  The album will be available first at during the Festival-in 2021- so get your autographed copy-due for release world wide late September. . through WJO/Checked Label and will be available online  on Norma's web site-in September- www.normaoharamurphy.net  You can get your special Autographed copy- you can pre order at Bony Mountain Trading Post-here online.  ALL EARLY BIRDS WILL RECIEVE FREE COPY! 

 

MY ORIGINAL FACEBOOK PAGE-IS LOST

Maybe some of you have been thru this too! very frustrating- very stressful!  I am unable to access my original page- it is still there-some of my mates can see it!  but I cannot! and I cannot access it?  but working on it- so is a problem with my Computer I suspect!  Never fear-it will be sorted out- but in the meantime please stay tuned to this Web Site! all latest news-updates etc will be on here. Currently as of now April/May we are applying for funding- trying to get support-because I am simply not game to try to run the Festival without it!  After seeing (Bluesfest) and so many other things cancelled- all this Covid stuff- really creating havoc. But I want you all to know we are trying our best- don't want to let you all down!  and this Festival has really become a much loved-anticipated event-so we will fight for it- and hopefully we can all get together again in September for another fabulous week! You can leave a message on here- or call us- 07-46674 604- Phil- 0492 863 964 - or text Phil- we have a fabulous Festival all lined up- and some great plans! The Festival site is green- lawn everywhere now instead of dust! the gardens look amazing- can't wait to show them off to you!  Luv Norma xxxx
