‘Chainsaw’ to rip into some country

FORMER carpenter Ken 'Chainsaw' Lindsay is this Sunday's special guest performer at the Grafton District Services Club's Monthly Hit of Country.

Ken's love for country music started when he first heard Slim Dusty sing "Pub With No Beer".

This drove him to start playing guitar at age 10 and by 17 he'd written first song.

After years of playing at parties and among friends he entered his first talent quest at age 48.

After success at various events and encouragement from family, friends and mentor Rick Aitchison, Chainsaw recorded with LBS studio and ABC and has won two awards at the Stan Coster Memorial Bush Ballad Awards at Bungendore.

While he likes most styles of country music his real love is the Bush Ballad.

Ken lives on the Mid North Coast and is involved in Community FM Radio.

For the past 16 years he has presented his popular 'Country Trax' program, playing 100% Australian Country Music on Hastings Community Radio 103.9 FM in Wauchope NSW.

He got the nickname 'Chainsaw' as he used to play the Tom McIvor penned song titled Chainsaw, recorded by Reg Poole, so often on his program.
