Yowie Musicians

Guaranteed fun for all.
See you there!!!!

   Our Resident Musician

John and his Mandolin

John Howley has been entertaining the East Coast of a Australia for over 30 years in bands as diverse as the reggae fusion band of ‘Show of Hands’, country bands such as ‘Ridgy Didge’, Aussie bush band ‘The Boomerang Bush Band’, jazz and swing as ‘Platypus Kazoo’ and popular Oz Trad and Rock band ‘Oz Deli’.

Now semi-retired from the road, and living in Kyogle, John brings his unique talents to the ‘Woodenbong Yowie Country Market’ events.

John Plays Guitar, Mandolin, Didgeridoo, and Harmonica as well as singing. He is just as comfortable belting out a Van Morrison song or playing ‘Morrison’s Jig’ on the Mandolin. ‘Eagle Rock’ will get those toes tapping while Paul Kelly’s ‘Dumb Things’ and ‘To Her Door’ will swing you. John is an accomplished songwriter as well and has many memorable original songs to entertain you while you browse the many and varied stalls at the Market.
