The Bush Music Club is to hold a weekend of Australian Bush Music in songs and tunes between Friday 27 and Sunday 29 May 2016 in the Morisset Showground, Ourimbah St Morisset, 5-10 minutes from centre of town.
If you like to sing, play an instrument and/or recite, this is the place for you!
The event is designed to encourage people of all ages to participate in a fun weekend of bush tunes, songs (old and new) plus Australian folklore generally.
There will be lots of opportunities for young people to get involved with the weekend's activities. As well as being encouraged to take part in the general music and song sessions, there will also be special scheduled workshops specifically for the younger musicians - all part of the Bush Music Club's Saplings initiative which encourages young musicians to make use of the rich resource of Australian music and song collected from the old bush players.
As the Morisset Showground has several buildings, there is room to have performances of songs separate from tune players, poets and Saplings events. The idea is that people can move from one area to another to enjoy and, if so desired, perform in the various forms of entertainment. There will be a blackboard session for those willing to reveal their talents to the audience and these performances are always enjoyable.
Food will be available on site and there are local shops close by in town. It will be BYO drinks.
