Editorial – Byron Council report card

Did you know it’s been six months since councillors were elected? They have another two years to go, and while a usual term is a gruelling four years, this time, it’s shorter, owing to a disrupting bat virus.

Bellingen bluegrass band The Mid North has taken out Album of the Year at the 2012 Dolphin Awards for their LP You Were Right About The Stars. The band also took out Country Song of the Year for their popular single Rosewood.

Other acts to get a guernsey in this year’s awards, held at Lismore’s Star Court Theatre last night, included Andrea Soler (Best Adult Contemporary and Best Female Vocal for Daydreamer), Round Mountain Girls (Best Folk/Protest for Mos Vos), Peter Westheimer (Best Electronic for Peace Dance) and Mr Speaker (Best Funk/R&B/Hip Hop for We Party).

‘It was an amazing night full of zing,’ awards spokesperson Mariska Hartwig told Echonetdaily.

‘The rig they brought in was huge and the show dazzled. But the sweetest thing of all was the looks on the faces of the winners and the spirit in the room. The audience was excited and it showed with raucous clapping and foot rumbling.’

A complete list of award winners follows.
