Possum Gully

from the Showpony Express album.

The exciting duo, SHOWPONY EXPRESS, consists of husband & wife RAY PRATLEY & SAMANTHA BELLAMY and their new album, SHOWPONY EXPRESS, deals up plenty of aces in both musical and vocal artistry.

Ray, who took up guitar at the age of 10, has played with many legendary figures in both country and jazz music. In 2014 he won the NSW Musician of the year Gold Medallion and he recorded an album with LINDSAY WADDINGTON which was recently released.

Samantha, who completed a Bachelor of Music in 2009, with studies in contemporary, country, rock and jazz, featured on the Roll Of Renown Show in Tamworth last year and has won awards in numerous categories including female vocal, gospel, yodelling and song writing.

POSSUM GULLY, the first of their 2 tracks on this volume of CRS, tells the story of the many who came to Possum Gully in Nundle, NSW, in search of their fortunes during the Gold Rush years. Looking at history and after many trips to Nundle and also Central Otago in New Zealand, where they visited some actual Chinese miners huts, Ray and Samantha wanted to put into song the history and struggle these people must have faced.
