Country musicians get right down to pickin’ a tune

The 33rd edition of the annual Gold ’n’ Notes Hoedown event began yesterday at the Cromwell Racecourse.

More than 1000 country music enthusiasts were expected during the three-day festival.

Proceedings began with "blackboard artists" where anyone who could hold a tune was able to perform.

The "country showcase" which will feature some of New Zealand’s top performers is expected to be one of the major entertainment drawcards tonight.
