Grab your tickets for Halls concert
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.
NOT TO BE MISSED: Canadian singer Del Barber will join The Mae Trio and Dallarnil's own Haelwen-Sian for aWoodford-style concert at Degilbo Hall on Friday night.
