Amy Ryan – Butterbox Beats
This is a night for lovers of country music!
It’s been a big year for young country music artist Amy Ryan who released her first EP this year and returned from the Tamworth Country Music Festival with a swag of awards. Now Amy is set to release her second EP with an official launch at Kingston Butter Factory Cultural Precinct on Friday 21 July.
At just 13 years of age, Amy is a rising star who enjoys telling stories through her lyrics and playing guitar. Her talents earned her the 2023 TSA Songwriters John Toomey Commemorative Award (youth) along with the Best Vocal Female Under 18 Brumby Award as well as the CCMA National Jamboree Award, the Youth Songwriter Award and Talent Quest.
Amy has a love for the land and has co-written the song “Our Land” with her father Andrew Ryan, and last year was awarded the Tamworth Songwriters Association Contest, Winner of the Novice – The Garry Koehler Commemorative Award 2022.
From the age of 9 Amy has collaborated with iconic Australian and American Country music artists. For the launch of her latest EP, Amy will share the limelight with the talented Open Season Band. This popular Logan-based band might be far away from country music’s Tennessee, but they certainly don’t sound it!
Marrying traditional folk and modern country in a way akin to genre heavyweights, Old Crow Medicine Show and Zac Brown Band, this unassuming local six-piece band represents the exciting new wave of bluegrass country folk music. Its members’ previous projects have seen them touring extensively both domestically and internationally.
Come and experience Logan’s own rising country music artists and enjoy a great night of toe-tapping ‘country’.
Grab a drink from the bar and bite to eat before heading into the Butterbox Theatre for fabulous free music – local and live!
Food trucks and markets from 4.30pm.
