2010 Fiddler’s Convention – Date Change

by | 7 Oct, 2009 | 4 comments

Yarra Junction 30 April to 3rd of May 2010.

Word just in from the Yarra Junction Fiddler’s Convention is that there is to be a change of date for the 2010 Convention. The dates are now Friday 30th April through to Monday 3rd May 2010. The change has become necessary to move the event away from the dangers posed by another scorching Victorian summer and the likely threat of further serious bushfires.

Yarra Junction Fiddlers’ Convention is a Bluegrass and Ol’ Timey camp retreat providing musicians and festival goers an opportunity to catch up with friends, play music and enjoys dances and performances. The convention is held at historic Camp Eureka which is now over 60 years old. It is the last surviving campsite in Australia used by the Eureka Communist League. The Campsite in the Yarra Ranges was originally a farmhouse of which only the barn remains. The land was given to the Eureka Communist League in 1945.

    To all those people who’ve contacted me about Elva’s post thank you all.She was merely making a courtesy call to let me know she’s getting married. This has been dragging on for some time , to say the least, and is of tremendous relief to me.
    Incidentally, I’m not sure if all readers are aware that there is a series of clips on You Tube from the 1970s? of Jim and Jesse. Here’s an example :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8WefF6C01c .I never had much time for this song before but this is awesome.

    Up and coming concert dates for Tony O’Rourke, yes I do have a date to take to a concert soon and yes she is an “up and comer”. However we are just good friends, absolutely platonic.
