My brother Les and I at Highfields Pioneer Village Easter Fest today... 🐣 Thanks to all who came out to watch me play! In the video Les is driving what Mum informs me is a 'Farmall H' tractor just like her father had when she was a child. #Siblings #LesTheTractorDriver #VintageEaster ... See MoreSee Less
That would have to be the oldest tractor I've ever seen Lyn.
Are you performing again tomorrow Lyn & if so, what time please?
Didn't he do a great job for 5 mins of instruction, Lyn? Once a farm boy, always a farm boy i guess😉
Just got back today from easter holidays so missed you Lyn. Ran into Alex at Coles tho xo
so wish we could have made it across to see you but with hubby in hospital we just couldnt be there :(
Happy Easter beautiful 🐣🐣🐣
Well folks, this is where my recording career began...this was my VERY FIRST recording studio ! Mum dug this out of a cupboard for me (just in time for me to start working on my next album!😉) So many memories singing into my Strawberry microphone along with Dolly Parton 🍓🎤 ... See MoreSee Less
That's how mine started too, my Tape recorder was much less cool though!
How awesome that your Mum still has it, bet it brought the sweetest memories for you😊
How sweet that she kept it all this time . But the question is does it still work
Love it! I had a bugs bunny record player with a carrot mic - but it wasn't high-tech enough to actually record ...
Yes! I remember this. I'm sure we had one at some stage.
New album THE ANALOGUE SESSIONS maybe lyn?? if it works would be worth a bit now
Well something pretty good came from that humble beginning!
That is brilliant. Did it tape.
Album cover right there.
That's so cute. 🍓
Oh wow I love it !!❤️
That's beautiful how precious x
Carry on champion you've made it.😎
Mum's are wonderful for keeping stuff like that. ♥
Awwww love it 😉💜
Aren't mums great 💕 Yours is one of the best. 💝
That's awesome. Good on mum for keeping it. 😀🎶🎤
From little things big things grow You sure did girl cheers
Thats great..Lyn. keep up the good work..
Please can we hear an early recording x

Dusty Brown Shoes...A short story by Lyn Bowtell.
In year 7 I started at a very expensive, Presbyterian all girls school. It was a big change from the small co-ed public school I came from.
I remember the first day well, walking down our red dirt road to the bus stop, the dogs following me until the highway when I shoo’d them back to the property...
lynbowtell.com/dusty-brown-shoes/ ... See MoreSee Less
Lyn, we went to the same high school, you were a couple of years ahead of me, the two things I remember the most are your amazing voice and beautiful smile. You always brought tears to my eyes in chapel when you sang, while Mr Pyke played his guitar and your beautiful smile lit up the room. Hard to believe the girl from high school who I admired so much is the same little girl in this story! 💖
Reminds me of my first day in high school. The headmaster came into the classroom and declared "Paul Rothapfel... obviously a Jewish name...watch this boy everybody, he killed our Jesus!" A statement followed by the teachers making me sit outside like a diseased leper during class mass, being the butt of jokes and 4 years of victimisation from some of the teachers and students alike. Just one statement from a ghostly scary freak in a black dress that all my fellow classmates took as solemn truth. I opted to learn music off campus instead of sport as it was hopeless being in any team that alienated me. A decision that had one teacher single me out in front of the class stating that 'music is gay and choosing to partake in music instead of rugby is even gayer than that' and to sit in the corner by myself every lesson 'the corner he called 'Gay purgatory' and be the subject of his class stories and insults. A decision that gave sanction to the rest of the class gang bashing me on a regular basis with no intervention from the superiors at the school. 2 years ago the headmaster was singled out as a ringmaster in the catholic pedophile investigation and died before his trial. The teacher responsible for the continuous bullying is now awaiting trial for raping boys in my class. By the way.... I'm not Jewish, but I am a professional musician! After typing this I forgot to add the point to it all. I think brilliance such as you Lyn stems from tragedies that we've endured in our younger lives. You found your way to climb to the top and put all this behind you. For that alone, we are all very grateful 😀
Lyn you won't remember me. But I felt that exact cold isolated feeling Competing at some country music festivals. I wasn't good, but I wanted to be. I didn't have the right clothes or shoes or family. When I sang you smiled at me even though I was terrible. I wanted to sing just like u. Thank you for being kind to me, with a simple warm smile, in a world of feeling alone :)
Wow!! I can remember catching the school bus with you Lynette and when you sang on the bus, you were amazing. You touched my heart and many others on that bus. I can still remember saying to you "gee I wish I could sing". Your exact response was "everybody can sing". Yes they can but whether they sound amazing is another thing 😂😂 Me?? No!! Lol. After leaving school, I worked for your Mum and Dad. Can't believe the girl who's parents had 3000 acres had the audacity to think she was better than anyone else. Your Dad was a very hard worker and instilled awesome work ethics that I still stand by today. Even if I was a little shit back then. Can still hear Boss' voice echoing in my head 😁 As for the teacher who couldn't give the time of day, I'm hoping that they are eating a hat full of badges and are choking slowly. You are amazing and an inspiration to all walks of life. Glad that your dreams weren't crushed because of ignorant people 😘
Not because of the same experience, but because of being different, I can very well relate. Your story makes a lot of sense to me Lyn. Rejection by the elitist snobs can shape your attitude to life forever, or at least until you find people who can relate to everybody without judgement. You experienced that rejection very blatantly. My rejection was more subtle. No comments made. Just decisions, in the form of lack of association with me. Yep, I totally get it.
I remember this. I was absolutely horrified when I saw Lyn's hair and whisked her up to the hairdressers where they tried to even up the mess. I took weeks and several visits to get it looking okay again. It wasn't until years later I was told out why Lyn cut her hair.
Oh Lyn,that must have been heartbreaking!! How dare they treat a child like that! All I can say is that teacher is a B----!!!' Shame you didn't tell Mum,would have done them good to get a severe dressing down!!! Hope they know that you are one of the most loved ,gorgeous musicians ,songwriter ,singer,and genuine people on this planet xxx
A sad story which resonates with me. I went to a one teacher school, my dairy farmer parents worked hard to provide for us. I had two pairs of shoes, one for school and one for church and good. Through (perceived?) peer pressure one day I wore my good shoes to school (without permission) and they broke. So for the rest of the year I had to wear my school shoes everywhere 😢 I'm sure there is a song in your story 🎧🎧🎧
You're the nicest alien I know! I became a teacher because I hated school and wanted to make the experience better for others.... it can be a horrible place for some.
I am so pleased that you didn't stop singing. A young lady from Tamworth told me about you and how beautiful you are and Lyn has an amazing voice. Her name was Aleyce Simmonds ❤
Time to write your book Lyn... your story had us all enthralled and how lucky are we to know that good, beautiful and talented triumphed! Always your champion xx
Oh my goodness Lyn. My heart is breaking for you. But I know how awesome you are, so stuff them all. But I also know how devastating it can be hear something in your youth that haunts you forever. I hope that mean Mrs Leopard hears your beautiful voice soon and realises the huge mistake she made. Xxxxx
Hey Lyn Bowtell. You sure would have showed Mrs bloody nasty Leopard. How awful for you.😠. You have the voice of an angel and a fab personality . Unlike nasty Leopard. Who ever heard a pair of shoes sing?👏😳🤔😤.. Well done you on achieving so much. Xx👌👍😘💋
Lynn you have prove that teachers and her so call students I bet they wish they had the voice that you have who cares if they have to have helicopter to check there so call fences they aren't you and you are beautiful inside and out and your voice is to die for xo cu in January 18
as the youngest of 8 I remember well packing my shoes with cardboard because of the holes in the sole, then walking to school in the snow.
Well you showed them didn't you. I wonder how many of them are as talented as you. They certainly would not have your wonderful personality
I wanted to keep reading.... Proof, good always wins over evil. So glad no one ever prevented your true colours shining through 💝
Made me sad:(. Gawd I luv ya Lynny B. All those horrible people missed out on having a living angel in thier lives. Idiots! Xxxxxxx
And out of all that grew a heart of gold. Wouldn't you like to find that choir teacher and show her the voice she missed out on that day.
good for you LYN keep kicking up that dust girl ! Sadly still those kinds of people are still in this world ! luv to you my FRIENDXXX
We all get our time to shine and I'm super excited to be around to witness yours........shine bright you beautiful soul....shine bright!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Wow , You are amazing Lyn & Mrs Leopard judgement was so wrong & it was their loss not yours , never judge a book by its cover <3 <3 <3
Wow thanks for sharing beautiful Lyn. I'm so glad I get to hear your incredible voice.
That was so bloody beautiful. I love you so much, thank you for making my heart shine every day. ❤
Reminds me of my first days at school too. I hope teachers today have more tact and finesse. I am finally teaching myself to play the piano at age 60 because I was told my hands were too little.......... I wonder what they said to Billy Joel or Elton John?

I love Heart of Sorrow Lyn. Can listen to it for hours. Will listen to the other one though. Also love Happy 👍🏻😀
i am old fashioned i like those silver round things and to get them directly from the musicians directly where possible
LOVE your music cuz...but then.....I may be a bit biased 😂😂😂
Spotify is the way to go.
Wonderwall has never sounded better

I finally got a record player for all the old records I've been collecting lately ! It's beautiful. Good morning Patsy. ❤🎶 ... See MoreSee Less
I've noticed you don't have any instruments or furniture with male names.
My mother would put Patsy Kline records on for me when I was little. :)
If you had dsid you were after one could have gave you one honest i have a few ive saved Got over 1.000 lps . All in mint condition. And 800 45s .
That is just beautiful Lyn - I so.......want one like that to play mine on 🎼🎶💞
I love playing my old records . Have my dads 78s to play one day . Enjoy reminiscing
Have you got a record youve been chasing for years All ways wanted made in Japan by buck owens after about 50 years i got it at the tip.twice in a week one was buck owens live at the ophera house. .and a 20 country music one
