We have just heard from Joan Douglas at the Longyard in Tamworth who has a host of free and paid bluegrass music events happening over the Tamworth week in several of the hotels in Tamworth.
The Pub is The Country Music Association of Australia’s Venue of the Year and is situated on the rim of the Taminda industrial area and the rural outskirts of Tamworth. The Pub is the last port of call before the airport on the Oxley Highway.
The Longyard Hotel is one of Tamworth’s most recognised venues and steeped in tradition. It is truly an icon of Australian hotels with an atmosphere as distinctly country and friendly as it is relaxed.
The Southgate Inn situated between Scully Park swimming pool, Southgate shopping centre and the Pirates Rugby field. Southgate Inn is a family sanctuary nestled in a high residential area of south Tamworth.
In the centre of town is The Good Companions Hotel recently refurbished in 2007. The Good Companions is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a hectic festival trek. Offering a great line up of free live entertainment on Friday & Saturday night of the festival The Good Companions is certainly the place to be.
