The 2022 Kelly Country Pick Kelly has been cancelled
Pete Hisco the festival organiser has sent through this missive this week from the Old Priory, the home of the Kelly Country Pick for over 20 years, announcing the need for a change of venue.
It is with regret that we inform you that we can no longer host KCP. Since COVID, we have had to restructure our business.
To comply with the requirements of the Dept of Education and the Positive Start Program, we have to prioritize schools over other events – Angela, The Old Priory, Beechworth.
Sadly this means the end of KCP after 21 years and more recently two cancellations thanks to covid.
The Priory delivered the perfect festival venue with affordable accommodation and plenty of space. Organisers were able to house upwards of 60 performers at a low cost, in fact with the previous owner Pam Bell ( I miss that laugh) for free. it is no longer viable. we will all miss it
Thanks to all who have helped ,performed and attended over the years. If we are holding tickets for you they will be refunded. I will contact those folk – Peter Hisco KCP Organiser.
While the Beechworth option is no longer a viable option, Peter Hisco will be running the Cobargo Country pick first weekend in August at the Cobargo Hotel Motel. Great spot, good food, camping ground out the back showers and toilets. 10 motel rooms and fires in the August.
