Dianne LINDSAY (2014)

Dianne Lindsay

1955 -  Born  on December 14th in Sydney.

Her early years were spent travelling along the roads and tracks of Australia where her parents (Reg Lindsay and Heather McKean) 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. 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 song writing 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 is a three time Golden Guitar finalist for Bush Ballad of the Year and also a Female Vocalist Peoples’ Choice winner 2013,2014 and 2015.

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 nationwide weekly radio program which she co-hosts with her husband presenting only Australian Bush Ballad songs and music.

The Australian Bush Ballad Show presented by Dianne Lindsay and Peter Simpson will soon be heard on UK radio. Presenter Paul Hazell, who has been hosting a country program in Sussex for approximately 20 years, will play the 100th Australian Bush Ballad Show as a special feature.

Dianne has accepted a nomination as Co-Patron of the Belrose Country Music Club.

2014 - Dianne was inducted into the Hands of Fame in Tamworth.
