The next Sydney Bluegrass & Old Timey get-together will be held at:

Annandale Neighbourhood Centre
79 Johnston St, Annandale.

The night begins at 6.30pm with the 'Safety In Numbers' workshop where people of all levels of ability learn a few bluegrass songs together and perform them at the beginning of the concert at 7.45pm. The songs include instrumental backing and breaks, but you don't have to play an instrument to be part of the SINners group.

At 7.45pm, an open mic bluegrass & old timey concert gets underway with totally unplugged all-acoustic music and it continues till late. Of course, being bluegrass music, there is jamming all night - they just never stop playing!

The whole night takes place through the efforts of dedicated volunteers, including the performers. Delicious supper goodies, tea, coffee and soft drinks are on sale throughout the night.

Entry cost is $5 for members of the Bluegrass & Traditional Country Music Society of Australia (BTCMSA), $7 others. All are welcome! Kids under 18 are free.
