After 2018 gave us the most successful and exciting Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival to date, this year’s supporting events will again be limited in number but packed with more fresh talent and brilliant music, at some of our favorite local venues – continuing with our Winter Showcase/Fundraiser event at The Hotel Shamrock on Sunday July 7th.
The packed list of acts to perform at this Showcase event includes some of Bendigo’s best, along with some fresh faces from the larger blues, soul, jazz, folk and original music circuits who’ve put their respective hands up to support our not-for-profit community music festival, in the opulent Federation Room and the “Yard Bird” balcony bar and kitchen overlooking Bendigo’s beautiful Rosalind Park, Charing Cross and Pall Mall.
In addition, and in keeping with the New Orleans vibe provided by such a majestic venue, local funk duo Honk Tank will host a busking/street-jamming stage outside the foyer entrance in Williamson Street. So come along and be part of the fun, as we host music across three stages at this year’s Winter Showcase!
As always, these artists are donating their time and talents, as do the Festival’s volunteer committee and crew, to help kick build the kitty to pay for the Festival itself, to be held on November 7-10, 2019.
To continue to fund this predominantly free festival, your support and assistance is needed. So spread the word and bring a posse to the Hotel Shamrock on July 7th and help grow the burgeoning music scene we’ve managed to revitalise together over the last few years in Central Victoria.
On behalf of our local venues, local and visiting artists, and all of us who enjoy a wide range of live music to choose from on a weekly basis, ‘Thank You’ for your ongoing support of grass-roots music events!
Tickets for the Julyy 7th Showcase event are available at the door on the day and are $20 for adults, $5 for under-18s (with under-12s free).
The live music will start at 11:30am sharp and continue through till 8pm.
