O’ Brother! Head on down to the Manjimup Bluegrass and Old Time Music Weekend 30 September to 2 October 2016
Manjimup will be alive with the sound of music this spring, with world-class bluegrass act The Davidson Brothers Band set to headline the Manjimup Bluegrass and Old Time Music Weekend, sponsored by Healthway, presenting the LiveLighter healthy lifestyle message.
One lucky reader has the chance to win a double pass to the Friday night bush dance, the Saturday night concert, plus 2 nights accommodation for two people at the beautifully renovated Manjimup Gateway Hotel.
The Davidson Brothers Band will feature a number of times during the 3-day event including providing the music for the bush dance. Victorians Hamish and Lachlan Davidson have performed in prestigious festivals and competitions across Australia and the USA however this will be their first performance in WA.
Also exclusive to Manjimup will be Old Time duo Ash and Andy, with special guest Jeremy Marcotte on banjo. Their sound evokes a simpler time when music served as a uniting communal pastime and provided a lively atmosphere for rural house parties and dance halls throughout Appalachia. Andrew Small, a native North Carolinian, has received numerous prizes for his fiddle and banjo playing at contests throughout the southeastern US, and in 2015 he was named National Bluegrass Mandolin Champion of Australia.
Bring your family and friends and don’t forget your instruments, as there will be heaps to do, including workshops, jam sessions, bush dance, local produce markets, Sunday Gospel SingOut on Sunday morning.
