Getting your bluegrass and old time fill
For those who can’t wait until November for some sweet bluegrass and old time goodness, there are two great festivals coming up. If you’re in need of that good High Country feeling, the legendary Kelly Country Pick is on 18-20 August. You can get the complete line-up, tickets, and program at their website: http://kellycountrypick.org/wordpress/. Rachel Eddy from West Virginia, USA will be claw-hammering away, along with plenty of local favourites and talented musicians from further afield.
Then clear your head down on the South Australia coast over the weekend of September 1-3 for the always excellent Wirrina Bluegrass and Acoustic Roots festival. They’ve got a great line-up this year, with Melbourne’s own 9 Mile Creek featuring as their headline act.
More announcements coming soon!
