Clelia gets her hands dirty

Country singer/songwriter Clelia Adams has her fingers in everything. Her latest recording, Wildflowers, has sat comfortably at the top of the European country charts since its release and the album has earned her many country music awards here in Australia.

This Italian-born Mullumbimby resident can turn her hand to anything country – and this Saturday those hands will get wet when she places her hands in wet concrete at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Clelia is one the seven people chosen to have their handprints in Tamworth’s most central landmark, the Hands of Fame. Located in CWA Park, there are hundreds of illustrious names and handprints that are an integral part of Australia’s country music story.

Clelia’s name and handprints will go alongside luminaries such as Tex Morton, Buddy Williams, Slim Dusty and Smoky Dawson.

The ceremony takes place this Saturday, January 23, immediately following the Country Music Cavalcade – a huge procession through the streets of Tamworth celebrating the annual country music gathering.

Congratulations Clelia.
