Gallery 1, Tuesday 18 January, 2.30pm

Bridget Guthrie, along with Dr Roslyn Russell curated this wonderful exhibition.

This is a great opportunity to hear the behind the scenes stories from  Take Me Home to Tamworth. This exhibition was 2 years in the making, and interprets the complex narrative that is Australian Country Music; from it's early beginnings to contemporary artists' work, and Tamworth’s place at the heart of Australian country music.

Hear from the curator who chose treasures to feature from the Gallery’s own collection, the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame, the National Portrait Gallery and private collections, along with specially selected images from photographers who have attended the festival over the decades.

Discover the singers, their songs, instruments and costumes, and the fans who have made Tamworth Australia’s ‘Country Music Capital’
