Grab your tick­ets for Halls con­cert

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - Erica Murree erica.murree@cnbtimes.com.au

AN ADDED at­trac­tion to to­mor­row night’s Fes­ti­val of Small Halls con­cert at Degilbo Hall will be the draw for the Biggen­den com­mu­nity run­ner-up in the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil’s Shop Lo­cally pro­mo­tion.

This lucky per­son will re­ceive a key to use to try to open a Toy­ota Yaris at Mt Perry next Tues­day.

Or­gan­is­ers are ex­tremely dis­ap­pointed and frus­trated at the lack of ticket sales for the con­cert.

Cr LoftyWendt said last year’s in­au­gu­ral event re­ceived rave reviews.

“It makes cater­ing very dif­fi­cult,” he said. “Tick­ets are avail­able at any of the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil of­fices, on­line or at the door on the night.

“We would pre­fer peo­ple to pre-pay so we know the num­bers for cater­ing.”

Open­ing the show that starts at 7pm will be Dal­larnil’s own Hael­wen-Sian, a singer/song­writer who thrives on simplicity.

“I write from ex­pe­ri­ences both per­sonal and en­coun­tered, my mu­sic floats be­tween coun­try, folk and some­where there­abouts,” she said.

Other artists in­clude Cana­dian Deb Bar­ber who is mak­ing his first visit to Aus­tralia.

He has been de­scribed as down to earth and a great sto­ry­teller and singer.

The other act is the Mae Trio, a Mel­bourne-based band of young mu­si­cians fast mak­ing a name for them­selves in the Aus­tralian mu­sic scene. Mag­gie and Elsie Rigby along with Anita Hill­man write their own songs and th­ese are taste­fully ar­ranged to suit their di­verse in­stru­men­tal tal­ents and love of three-part vo­cal har­mony.

Halls pro­ducer and head of pro­gram­ming for Wood­ford Folk Fes­ti­val, Chloe Goodyear said artists play­ing the Fes­ti­val of Small Halls are cho­sen not only for their mu­sic, but for their will­ing­ness to be­come part of the com­mu­nity.
