Celebrating 40 YEARS of the Bluegrass & Traditional Country Music Society of Australia!
On Friday 6th June 1975, around 30 people gathered at Sydney University to talk about starting an organisation for players and lovers of bluegrass and acoustic old-time traditional country music. On that night, the BTCMSA was born.
We'll be celebrating the anniversary at the Sydney Bluegrass & Old-time Music Get-together on Saturday 6 June 2015 where we will share our love of the music. Location is the Annandale Neighbourhood Centre, 79 Johnston St, Annandale.
The night begins at 6.30pm with 'Safety In Numbers' where people at 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. We invite you join them and create a Super-Sized-SINners group for the night.
At 7.45pm an open mic bluegrass & old-time music concert gets underway with totally unplugged all-acoustic music and it continues till around 11.30pm. Jamming starts early and ends late.
The whole night takes place through the efforts of dedicated volunteers, including the performers. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and delectable goodies available.
On this special night, entry is FREE for subscriber MEMBERS of the Bluegrass & Traditional Country Music Society of Australia (BTCMSA), $6 for concessions, $8 others. Kids under 18 are free. All are welcome!
The continuing assistance given by Leichhardt Council during 2015 is gratefully acknowledged.
