Festival producers Wendy Jackson and Peter Hisco have announced some of the details for 2009’s Kelly Country Pick later this year in Beechworth, Victoria.
In addition to an expanded artist schedule they have added another two venues to the Beechworth festival. This will see two concerts in every time slot on Friday night, Saturday afternoon and evening, as well as Sunday.
The festival is developing into a significant community event that attracts a tourist audience while, due to venue sizes, retains its intimacy.
The talent confirmed for 2009 includes:
- Gerry Hale’s Uncle Bill
- Blue Mountain Rain
- Bridgland Bros. (aka Southland)
- High and Lonesome
- Appalachian Heaven
- Craig Woodward’s Friday Night Old Time Band
- Mama’s Mountain Jug Band
- The Luau Cowboys
- Bluegrass Souls
The Kelly Country Pick is scheduled for 21st to 23rd August 2009.
