Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - ❏ Bran­don Livesay

GINA Jef­freys will head- line the Rise and Shine con­cert in Gayn­dah.

The con­cert will take place this Fri­day at the Gayn­dah Show­grounds from 4-8pm.

Rise and Shine Queens­land is bring­ing mu­si­cal tours to re­gions dev­as­tated by the Aus­tralia Day floods.

Pre­mier Camp­bell New­man said he en­cour­aged the com­mu­nity to en­joy a free af­ter­noon of fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties, a bar­be­cue and live mu­sic.

“Coun­try singer Gina Jef­freys, acous­tic artist An­drew Mor­ris, alt-coun­try solo artist Sue Ray and lo­cal songstress Rachel Koster will take to the stage for an af­ter­noon of great Aussie en­ter­tain­ment,” Pre­mier New­man said.

“It will be the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to take a break, re­flect on the year and cel­e­brate the Gayn­dah com­mu­nity spirit.”

Lo­cal Govern­ment Min­is­ter David Crisa­fulli said the con­cert was about bring­ing the North Bur­nett com­mu­nity to­gether.

“It­was an ini­tia­tive thatwe wanted to do just to give the com­mu­nity an un­der­stand­ing that whilst the phys­i­cal re­cov­ery will take a long time, and­whilst the phys­i­cal re­cov­ery is so im­por­tant, so is the so­cial re­cov­ery and men­tal re­cov­ery,” Mr Crisa­fulli said.

Rise and Shine Queens­land tours to 10 com­mu­ni­ties across the state and is pro- grammed by Queens­land Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, led by artis­tic di­rec­tor James Mor­ri­son.

“I am thrilled we have the chance to send so many won­der­ful per­form­ers to join th­ese com­mu­ni­ties in their cel­e­bra­tions,” he said.
