Bush Balladeer’s Music Muster hits high note

The dust was sent flying early last Sunday as caravans and motor-homes began making their way out to the Widgee Showgrounds for the weekend's annual Bush Balladeer's Music Muster.

Already the landscape has changed with regulars setting up camp.

Music will flow with walk-up artists giving their all and the bush poets entertaining the audience with spirited renditions of Australian folk lore.

From Friday afternoon, the audience will be captivated with Keith & Caitlyn Jamieson, Alisha Smith, Jeff Gibson and many other invited artists including our very own Olivia Nolan and Alice Benfer.

Balladeer fans enjoy the singing and the poetry and love to catch up with fellow travellers along the Aussie music trail.

Widgee is one of their favourite spots and once again the nomads are setting up camp, sitting back and soaking up the atmosphere. 

Organisers are encouraging live music fans to head out to Widgee this weekend to be a part of fun.
