Friday 14th - Sunday 16th September 2018, Nimbin Roots Festival, Nimbin NSW
Nimbin Roots Festival NSW

The 3rd annual Nimbin Roots Festival is underway! If you like real music, living outside the spqare and don’t fancy being amongst ten’s of thousand’s of screeming people all fenced in one area with a tiny little spec of a stage in the distance, then this festival is for you!

Three days of non stop roots music from Australia and abroad spread throughout the colourful village of Nimbin, Australia’s counter culture capital.

We don’t have any ‘headline acts’ at Nimbin Roots Festival, as we believe that every act that we choose to play, are all as good as each other and are all treated equally too 🙂

During the festival, we host the anual Australian Roots Music Awards on the Sunday night, as well as the Peace March on the main street of Nimbin on the Saturday..

Our event is very family friendly and camping is just $10 per person per night at the showground which is walking distance to all festival venues.

We also will be providing an airport shuttle bus from and too Byron/Ballina airport throughout the festival that will coincide with all jetstar flights. We also provide a shuttle bus daily to and from Byron Bay, should you wish to stay there.

Keep up-to-date with what’s happening here, or on our website www.nrfest.com

 

 
Friday 28th September - Sunday 7th October 2018, Mildura Country Music Festival, Mildura Victoria
Mildura Country Music Festival 2018

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

PASSIONATELY INDEPENDENT

When Australian country music fans talk of the festival “biggies”, the Mildura Country Music Festival rates a mention alongside the Tamworth Country Music Festival and the Gympie Muster as one of the big three.

The major difference between the other two and the annual Mildura Country Music Festival is that Mildura has Australia’s biggest showcase of Independent entertainers.

What that means is a seemingly unending cast of highly talented professional country music artists who aren’t signed to major record label deals.

The Independent factor gives Mildura a very different complexion, and it’s a successful formula that has worked admirably over the past thirty years. In 2018, more than 50 individual artists and groups will entertain over the 10-day period to celebrate the festival’s 32nd year, and the roster comprises many award winners. But then, when you consider that the Independent artists make up probably 95 percent of performers in the country music industry, and the calibre and achievements of the artists is well documented, it strikes home that there is a huge well of talent out there.

A large proportion of the artists performing at Mildura in the past have highly successful recording and touring careers and big fan bases throughout Australia. With names like Johanna Hemara, Rodney Vincent, Kiara Rodrigues, Reg Poole, Tom Maxwell, Owen Blundell, Terry Gordon, Justin Standley, Aleyce Simmonds and Allan Caswell, you can gather a truckload of chart hits, popular albums, and recording and songwriting awards.

What Mildura has steadily developed is something that draws thousands of fans on an annual pilgrimage that would make many non-music lovers scratch their heads in bewilderment. Often driving thousands of kilometres, the fans converge on this beautiful destination on the banks of the legendary Murray River for ten days of virtually non-stop country music, and the Mildura Festival has steadily built is own culture through the years. It’s become the Mecca for the “empty-nesters” – the mature age couples whose kids have flown the coop, the ones who have the time to set out for two or three weeks holiday, and most importantly, those who have a deep love of the music. The wonderful part about Mildura in September is that not only is it country music heaven, it’s also a great holiday destination.

The fans love the freedom of Mildura, and the value-added factor. For a start, virtually all the musical entertainment is free, and the majority of the shows are multi-artist concerts. If you were paying, the value is certainly there, but in this free environment, everything’s a bonus.

The venues, 25 in all, spread from the City Mall providing all-day entertainment at central city venues in Mildura to outlying locations like Wentworth, Merbein, Red Cliffs, Coomealla, Buronga and Gol Gol. Every taste is catered for with Line Dancing, Country Rock, Bluegrass, Bush Ballads and daily Walk Ups for those not on the program.

The jewel in the crown for the past twenty one years has been the live concert and radio presentation of the Southern Stars – The Australian Independent Country Music Awards, that recognise the achievements of the Independent recording artists during the past year, and this year’s entries are sure to again endorse the status of the event. Many previous finalist and winners like Felicity Urquhart, Darren Coggan, Travis Sinclair, Drew McAlister and Carter & Carter have also won Golden Guitars,with some notable successes like Allan Caswell, Brendon Walmsley, James Blundell, Luke O’Shea and Dianna Corcoran being multiple Golden Guitars winners.

The culture of Mildura has built up on a real family factor, and that applies equally to the artists as well as the fans. There is a noticeable lack of urgency and panic during the festival, because if you miss a planned event on one day, you can usually catch up later in the week. The excitement factor is still there, but there’s an element of control built in – and that’s why the enjoyment factor is just as evident on day ten as the start. And the reason the artists enjoy it so much is that it’s ten days of music, friendship and fun. Mildura is really a level playing field – no star billing, no support act tag, and certainly no room for egos.

For the fans it looks easy, but the organisation of an event the size and duration of the Mildura Festival encompasses a full 12 months of planning, and an awesome array of tasks from booking, accommodating and placing the artists, arranging venue rosters, working with a multitude of local suppliers and with strong support from sponsors, traders, Mildura Rural City Council, Wentworth Shire Council, State Government and Visit Victoria.

Underpinning the festival is Festival Radio 91.5 FM which broadcasts a 24 hours per day country music format during the Mildura festival, focussing on the music of artists appearing at the Festival.

So why do they (the organisers) drive themselves into the ground each year to make the Mildura Festival such a successful music and tourism event? Simple – they do it for the love of the music, they do it for the Independent Country Music artists, they do it for Mildura, and they do it for the fans. It’s a terrific combination that has created one of Australia’s most unique musical events.

The 32nd Mildura County Music Festival runs from Friday, September 28th to Sunday, October 7th, 2018. Further information can be obtained from 1800 039 043.

Sunday 22nd July 2018 - Are You Aware We Care Concert, Wests Leagues Club, Tamworth NSW

It was great to be a part of this amazing line up of artists & friends, both local and national, raising awareness and funds for our farmers.

From Northern Daily Leader:

TAMWORTH has shown its true colours, with the community rallying around its farmers to raise more than $40,000 in a one-off concert.

It was a sold out crowd for the RU Aware We Care drought relief concert, with 800 people packing in to Wests Leagues Club on Sunday afternoon.

Along with the ticket sales, there was a telethon manned by Tamworth councillors, and dozens of donation tins circling the crowd, which raised a combined $12,500. An online auction raised $1775.

When country music star and headline act Lee Kernaghan got the call, he didn’t hesitate to say “count me in mate, I’ll be there”.

“When times are tough in the country, country people stick together, and that’s what this whole effort is about,” he said.

“Flying in today, I had a whole new understanding of the severity of the drought. To those farmers out there that are doing it tough, don’t give up, your family is depending on you. You are so important and we need you.”

All the money raised will be distributed by the Salvation Army. Rural chaplains Rusty and Di Lawson have been the organisation’s boots on the ground, and said it was “pretty dire straits” for most farmers.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Hats Off to Country festival was launched in Tamworth, Australia’s Country Music Capital, by the Country Music Association of Australia (CMAA) in 2000.

The main event for the first year was a tribute to Australia’s King of Country Music, Slim Dusty, where some five thousand people packed into the Tamworth Regional Entertainment & Conference to be a part of the major tribute.

Pubs and clubs across the city, and some within the Tamworth region, joined in by organising events and activities that all contributed to a wonderful country music festive atmosphere.

In the following years, Hats Off continued to be a major focus with, first, the CMAA organising annual tribute concerts and more and more local venues joining in to increase the quantity and range of entertainment.

Saturday 29th April 2017 - Percey's Bar & Kitchen, Orange NSW

I’m looking forward to hitting the road with Brendan Nawrocki on his Open Road Tour. http://brendannawrocki.squarespace.com/

We’ll be heading to Percy’s Bar & Kitchen, Orange NSW and playing some tunes from 7pm.

CHECK OUT PERCY’S BAR & KITCHEN AND ALL IT HAS TO OFFER.

 http://percysorange.com.au/

PERCY’S STORY

Sydney circa 1822 – Captain Percy Simpson was convinced by Governor Brisbane to head west with a bunch of ‘educated’ convicts and start producing food for NSW. Percy’s skill in motivating convicts was put to good use, and he commenced his work creating what is now an abundant regional food belt.

Fast-forward 193 years and Captain Percy’s legacy lives on in Orange’s newest small bar – Percy’s Bar & Kitchen. Established by two Sydney-siders, Chris and Fraser, who like our Captain Percy made the trip west of the mountains to continue the growing movement in the NSW food and wine scene.

 

Percy’s Bar & Kitchen aims to showcase the best of what the Orange region has to offer, brought together with the talent of local chefs,- an exciting yet approachable menu and a venue with enough quirky twists to keep you coming back for more.

Percy’s industrial feel is the work of award winning designers Luchetti Krelle, of Momofuku Seiobo, Chimmichurri, Ananas and SoCal fame.

Orange’s newest small bar welcomes locals and visitors alike, and we are certain Percy’s Bar & Kitchen will find a big place right in the heart of Orange.
