News From The Sydney Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Group:
In case you haven’t picked up this news from our Facebook Groups, we have had to regretfully cancel the next Sydney Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Get-together due to be held on 3 July 2021 at the Annandale Community Centre. This is necessary because of the COVID-19 outbreak occurring in Sydney at the moment and the subsequent restrictions that have been introduced in the Greater Sydney Area.
It was so joyful to come together again in our music community in April 2021, after a gap of 16 months, and we worked hard to make it COVID-safe but pretty much like it used to be. However, I guess another COVID outbreak was always on the cards to, as my grandmother would say, “throw a spanner in the works’.
We’ll keep you informed about when and how we are likely to start up again (which will depend on Public Health Orders and requirements by the Inner West Council which owns the premises). Make sure you keep an eye on the BTCMSA and Sydney Bluegrass Get-together Facebook pages for updates.
