He has several albums available, also a DVD and has written songs for many other artists over the years including Slim Dusty and Jeff Brown.
Alisha plays bush ballad lead guitar in a style similar to the late Barry Thornton, she was fortunate to be taught some guitar by Barry before he passed away. She has two full instrumental albums to her credit and some which she shares with Keith and their daughter Caitlyn. Alisha has won several awards, her first was the Barry Thornton Encouragement award at Bungendore in 2005 and in recent years she also won the Instrumental section at Bungendore. She was nominated in the finals for a Golden Guitar in the Instrumental category in 2008.
Caitlyn is 13 years old and has been performing with her parents since the age of 2. She plays several instruments including guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bass guitar, ukelele and is currently learning to play piano as well. She plays a big part in their family shows, singing several songs and some great harmonies with Keith as well. She has also started playing a couple of instrumentals with Alisha. Caitlyn was also awarded the Barry Thornton Encouragement Award at Bungendore at the age of 11, also winning New Talent the same year.
Together they have travelled many miles all over Australia performing at festivals, clubs, pubs, old time country halls, aboriginal communities and many other venues. Their new album “Memories Within” has been well received by their audiences, it was produced by Steve Newton and ENREC Studios in Tamworth, and is a great family album with a good variety of Country songs, Bush Ballads and Instrumentals and showcases what they do in their live shows. Keith Alisha and Caitlyn are looking forward to performing some new songs from “Memories Within” at the Bungendore festival in 2020.
