Karuah Bluegrass Festival 14th – 16th May 2010
Here’s news of another Bluegrass Festival sent in this week from Karuah which is situated by the Karuah River, a two hour drive north of Sydney via the Pacific Highway. Originally occupied by the Worimi Aborigines, the area’s indigenous place-name Karuah is thought to mean native plum tree.
Since the Pacific Highway bypass in 2004, Karuah has reinvented itself as a peaceful village for travelers north and south.
The Karuah Buegrass Festival is planned for the weekend of 14th to 16th May and people are encouraged to be involved in a community festival where residents, musicians and music lovers can gather to listen or play. In addition to scheduled concerts there will be workshops for banjo, mandolin & fiddle along with blackboard gigs and picking for those who wish to bring their instruments
Featured acts are:
- Hardrive Bluegrass Band
- The Lawnmowers
- Gleny Rae Virus and Her Tamworth Playboys
- Daniel Watkins & Friends
- The Slicksville Pickers
- Steve Wood & The Johnson Creek Drifters
- Fat Wombat
Weekend tickets are $35, with pre sales available from www.bigtix.com.au , Karuah Mobil and during the weekend of the festival.
Karuah offers various accommodation options include motels and camping all within walking distance of venues.
