The next Sydney Bluegrass & Old-Time Music 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 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.

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. Hunter & Suzy Owens are the feature act in November.

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

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

For more information, call Rod Jones on (02) 9456 1090, check out our website or visit us on Facebook.

The assistance of Leichhardt Council is gratefully acknowledged.
