DESPITE big names like Boy and Bear and The Black Sorrows from Sydney and Melbourne playing at Brigalow Beatz in Clermont, some of the more grassroots acts still drew plenty of attention.
Brad Butcher has spent most of his life in Dysart and Mackay and still works as a crane driver in Dysart.
He took the day off work to play at Brigalow Beatz in Clermont, and was stoked to perform for the home audience espiecially after just releasing his debut album.
He took some time out after his set to speak with Rural Weekly reporter Kathleen Calderwood about his weekend at the festival and his number one fan, local catholic school principal Michael Roach.
