Omid’s set for Yungaburra

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - THE GROOVE -

THE Yungaburra Ses­sions are upon us again, bring­ing the best lo­cal folk mu­si­cians around, to the ve­ran­dah of the Yungaburra pub.

Folk mu­sic en­thu­si­asts or just those keen for a lit­tle some­thing dif­fer­ent this Satur­day, head up the hill to Ather­ton and watch the joy­ous jam ses­sion.

The Fe­bru­ary fea­ture artist i s our very own h i g h l y ac­claimed singer/song­writer and multi- in­stru­men­tal­ist, Omid Mas­ter, who will be­gin his set at 7pm.

Mr Mas­ter said he is ex­cited about play­ing at Yungaburra again.

‘‘I played at the Table­land Folk Fes­ti­val last year so they in­vited me to do one of these ses­sions which are once per month,’’ he said.

‘‘It is great be­cause it is for folk mu­sic en­thu­si­asts who like at the fes­ti­val lis­ten to the artist and the story telling.

‘‘They have the Yun­guburra mar­kets in the morn­ing and then mu­si­cians get to jam from 3pm out the front of the ho­tel.

‘‘My set starts at 7pm and I get to show­case songs form my al­bums rather than the typ­i­cal cover songs you would nor­mally hear in bars so it is dif­fer­ent. It is a great com­pli­ment that they have asked me to do it and I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it same way I loved play­ing at the fes­ti­val.’’
