Cammie Lindon and Barry Ferrier - Lindon Ferrier

Barry Ferrier met outstanding vocalist and musician Cammie Lindon in the ealy 70s at a concert at which they both appeared in concert held in Hyde Park Sydney. Cammie later supported Leo Kottke at Sydney Town Hall and performed some of Barry's songs in this show.

In the  late 70s Barry and his late wife Cammie Lindon developed a successful music career together, first as a duo Lindon Ferrier and later performing around Sydney and Melbourne with their theatrical funk rock band Skeleton Crew with Peter Leighton on drums and Chris Doyle on bass who Barry met in  Jeff St John and Sacha. This band featured in a revival season of Steve J. Spears' politically charged  but highly melodic piece "Africa the Savage Musical" at the VCA Theatre in Melbourne.

Lindon Ferrier  recorded singles at United Sound Studios with producer Spencer Lee and who secured a recording contract for the duo with international label RCA. They appeared on the ABC's legendary "Countdown", appeared live to air for a Triple JJJ  performance  and supported Ry Cooder at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne, going on to support Norman Gunston Christmas Show and make further regional telvision appearances together. 

Here is the IMDb entry for Cammie:

Caron Mayda Lindon, affectionately known to family and friends as Cammie, was born 13th November 1955 in Sydney, Australia. She was the second child of five siblings, born to Richard and Jean Lindon, both professional vocalists.  In 1982, she was pipped at the post for the lead role in the Australian hit musical comedy movie, Starstruck and was given the role as "the backup singer".

Caron died on June 21st 1999 in Sydney at the age of 42, after a four-year long battle with cancer.
