The folks at Wirrina have let us know that the dates for this year’s festival have been moved. The September weather has played a major part in their decision and thus the festival has been moved to November.
The 7th Bluegrass and Acoustic Roots Festival is now planned for the weekend of November 16th-18th, 2018. This is a week after the Mountaingrass weekend in Beechworth.
If you’ve already booked accommodation or time-off for September, we apologise for the inconvenience. If you are camping or bringing a caravan though, we make absolutely no apology whatsoever, as the probability of decent weather for camping and travelling is much higher at that time of year. We’ll return to the same venue for all activities – the Wirrina Cove Holiday Park. Ben and Holly have been great supporters of our festival so we are looking forward to being there with them again – the Festival Team.
Organisers say it’s early days, but it looks like being a very good weekend this year. So do plan to come and check it out. They’ll have the usual offering of concerts, workshops and jam sessions and looking to see what else might be possible, a little further down the track. Suggestions and contributions are welcome, as always.
Interested in performing? Let them know if you want to be considered for the program. Bluegrass, Old timey, Americana/String Band styles, traditional acoustic music are all welcome.
