Bush Poetry

One could be forgiven for thinking Carol had been involved in Bush Poetry all her life. Not so. Her world revolved around Competition Show Horses. It wasn't until her first book was published and friends took her to Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2003, that she even saw a Bush Poetry Competition. In the ensuing years, she has made a huge impact on the Australian Poetry Scene, amassing award after award for performing, writing and for recorded works. Awards

She is rapt in the whole scenario and continues to work tirelessly in the pursuit of excellence in all fields. Her poetry started of course with horse poems and in this field, she excels. But her work runs the gamut of hilarious, quirky, contemporary, political, reflective, impacting, historical and moving ballads right through to sheer nonsense!

The consumate performer, she is available to entertain with tremendous appeal to a wide range of audiences. From intimate gatherings to schools to special functions and fundraisers large and small, corporate events, variety concerts, 'niche' entertainment to the biggest Folk festivals and Country music Festivals throughout Australia. She is also a very experienced compere, function organiser and highly qualified judge of horses and poetry.
