Factoid: 2011 Tamworth Country Music Festival. Whilst attempting to pass a barrier with a ute loaded with our gear, en route to a show, a policeman challenged us saying, “where do you think you’re goin?” When we said we’re loading our gear in for a show ….. he said “ Shit … I thought you were goin to the tip”
