The Lady Born To Sing
Dianne Lindsay was born and bred in country music and being part of the family who helped carve our Australian country music industry, means country music has always been a part of her life. Her early years were spent travelling along the roads and tracks of Australia where her parents took their music to the people in the towns and country areas of Australia. They travelled in cars and caravans, made countless tours performing in halls and theatres around the country and also followed the showground circuit for a time. Her parents are, of course, Reg. Lindsay and Heather McKean (of the McKean Sisters). Dianne has inherited their love of country music, is an entertainer herself and has become a well-known figure on the Australian country music scene.
While Dianne enjoys all styles of country music, she is performing traditional country music with her own personal touch and this, along with her successful songwriting and natural stage presence, has made her a much sought-after artist. Dianne travels extensively throughout Australia with her lead guitarist and bass player appearing at many country music festivals and musters and also runs her own shows. Dianne is a multi-award winning artist and was a 2012 and 2013 Golden Guitar finalist for Bush Ballad of the Year. Well known throughout Australia, she was invited to the USA to perform at a festival where she was honoured to be inducted into the ‘Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame’.
Dianne has worked hard to achieve a high profile in Australia’s traditional country music and bush ballad scene and is well recognised for her efforts in promoting traditional country music including presenting a regular weekly radio program which she co-hosts with her husband presenting only Australian bush ballads.
Underlying everything is a simple desire to enjoy and share her music as well as a strong desire to promote traditional Australian country music.
